ATTIE JANECKE

2005

Attie is a professional hunter specialising in balancing herds for the best breeding qualities and also does culling for the venison market.  He is often called upon to sort out the mistakes of others in sometimes difficult situations.  He is an expert at long shots and this is reflected by the custom rifles he uses, all built for "impossible" shots. Attie uses a 22-250 loaded with GS HV 40 gr bullets, a 6.5x57 with GS HV 110gr bullets, a 300 Win Mag with GS HV 160gr bullets and a 416 Remington with GS HV 330 gr and GS FN 380gr bullets.  As a professional hunter, he says that he demands the highest accuracy and reliability from his equipment and ammunition.

Attie hosts hunts for local and overseas clients who wish to hunt with bow or rifle.  He also offers wing shooting.  He works from the Gauteng area of South Africa and can be contacted on +27 83 293 7934.

A tale of two Black Wildebeest

During the 2005 season, Attie was required to follow up on a Black Wildebeest that was wounded with a neck shot by a bow hunter.  The opportunity for a shot came at 345 metres and presented a slightly quartering, almost broadside shot.  Using his 22-250 loaded with a GSC 40gr HV bullet, he placed the shot to enter just forward of the left front leg. It punched through the second rib and the top of the heart and exited between the fourth and fifth ribs on the right.  The neck wound from the bow shot can be seen in the photo on the right below.

The Black Wildebeest below was the loser in a fight for dominance and was injured. Attie also had an order for a carcass from a local butcher and this required that a head shot be taken.  Cover for stalking in the area did not exist and the closest Attie could get to the animal was 230 metres.  After careful assessment of the conditions, he decided that it was safe to take a head shot and he hit the Black Wildebeest below the horns for a perfect brain shot.  The 40gr GSC HV bullet was not recovered.
