Airgun Hunting Legion Member Takes The Pending World Record Cape Buffalo
10.27.20, Springfield, MO. Airgun Hunting Legion is proud to announce the newest pending airgun world record Cape Buffalo taken by Legion member, Robert Grace, while hunting in South Africa. Grace’s Cape Buffalo scores 96 0/8ths gross, which would make it the new world record for this species in the airgun category pending an official measurement.
“We are thrilled for Robert as the newest pending airgun world record holder for Cape Buffalo,” says Director, Jason Reid. Grace’s Cape Buffalo is a great example of the species, and of the ethical power air rifles even with the biggest and toughest of game species.”
“Once we were able to get ahead of the herd of Buffalo we waited for the old Duggaboy to present a broadside shot, said Grace. “I was able to make a good shot at about 50 yards and due to the crosswind, the Buffalo never heard the shot. He ran a total of about 90 yards before expiring. What an exciting, adrenaline-packed hunt!”
Grace took the record buffalo in South Africa with a Western Big Bore Bushbuck air rifle. To see Grace’s record Cape Buffalo visit www..airgunhuntinglegion.com/trophy/robert-g-96-0-8.
