The eland is South Africa's largest antelope. Weighing in at up to 2000 pounds, it is the largest spiral-horned antelope.  They graze during the day in open woodland and scrub veld in herds of 8 -12 animals, although larger herds are not uncommon.  It is tricky getting into a good shooting position as they take flight at the first sign of danger.  Good rifle choice and accurate shooting is essential if you want to avoid tracking a wounded animal over a long distance.  A lot of specimens are taken at shorter range in cover.
