I was hunting in South Africa, on the East Cape, on a ten-day safari with ten animals to kill. I had tags for warthog, wildebeest, bushbok, gemsbok, impala, duiker, two species of springbok, and a blesbok. But the animal I wanted most was the last on the list; the kudu. Now I'd put a bullet in one's chest, and I knew that if I didn't move fast we would lose the animal in the steep terrain. I did not want this animal to suffer.
