Here’s another example of an impala drop shot made by a hunter in South Africa.
This guy hit the impala square in the chest while it was facing him and his impala drop shot made tracking the animal super easy. From the looks of things, his shot hit just in front of the right shoulder, probably taking out the impala’s brachial plexus (which prevented the antelope from running) before hitting the heart and lungs.
Watch the video to see what I mean.
How’s that for an easy tracking job?
Sometimes, it’s tough to predict if your shot will end up being an impala drop shot ahead of time. This one was a bit of a surprise because he did not hit the spine or brain, yet the animal still went down very quickly.
Keep this in mind if you ever get an opportunity to go impala hunting.
