After a couple of days with several unsuccessful stalks, he says their tracker picked up an exceptionally large track around 9:30 am, and they finally caught up to a group of bulls at 3:30 that afternoon, covering eight miles on foot. Madden says the area was covered in thick mopane, cutting visibility to less than 40 yards. When they finally caught sight of the eland, he says one of the bulls visibly stood out from the others. The group spooked. Chaos followed, with eland running in all directions. Madden says Murray did a superb job keeping track of the big one and prevented him from shooting a smaller animal. "He is an experienced and tenacious hunter," says Madden. The eland's horns green-measured just shy of 46 inches.
