+1 I found it very good. But really all you need to remember is that with African plains game their vitals are further forward and a little lower than any UK deer.There is a mini edition in paperback which you can get for about £20 and it is probably the book that fits your criteria best.
I'm planning my first trip to Africa to hunt plains game in 2018. Are there any books available which give a description of the quarry species, recommended shot placement etc? I have searched for The Perfect Shot online, but copies seem to be over £100.
Good advice there from PeteL. Steve Robinson (Shakari) who is now retired and living in Portugal, regularly posts on Accurate Reloading.com,an excellent form for information on African hunting.Take a look at The Shakari Connection, it lists many books of interest and you may well find something there. The website is also a mine of info on planning your Safari.
African Hunter publish "Shot Placement" a Pocket Field Guide. Can be ordered on line from
By and large, your aiming point on African Plainsgame is much the same as for deer - just behind the front leg and one third to halfway up the body.
Listen to the safari operators im sure they know their stuff, but think you are doing the right thing sourcing as much info before you get there to ensure an ethical and quick kill , but Listen to your guide he will know what works best in his areadownload shot placement photos from the internet to your mobile gallery area, works better than the booklet, especially if you want to zoom in...
