Of the six head of game I took in Namibia, four can be considered fairly tough customers. The two exceptions were a springbok, a pretty gazelle that weighs about 75 pounds, and a duiker I shot one evening with a .22 Magnum belonging to my guide, Dirk DeBod. The bigger animals were gemsbuck, Cape hartebeest, blesbok and zebra. All were one-shot kills except for the gemsbuck, which required two shots-a nearly disgraceful episode that I'll confess to in an upcoming article. All were shot at distances over 200 yards, except for the zebra, which I recall being about 80 yards away.
