Was in an active zone in the Limpopo valley on the Zimbabwe border, my associate shot a Kudu at about 1000 yards. I was so impressed with shot and knowing we were going to brai (BBQ) that Kudu at the base, I did something stupid. When we got to the animal in the Jeep, I jumped out, went over to it and put my arms out with two thumbs up. In a split second I was on my back on the ground with the wind knocked out of me and a broken rib. I took a round from a sniper with a .308, but I was wearing a vest, so no entry. It was the first time I learned bullets have the right of way.
BTW, it hurts every time it's going to rain so I get regular reminders lol.

OK, couple questions.
!. Your jeep was there, you just drove up. Did you ever find the MORON who shot you?
2. You had a bullet proof vest on? Is that normal where you hunt?
Even with a vest you are lucky to be here considering it was a .308.
