African Lion Shot Placement

African Lion

Shot placement for lions is extremely important. Hit them right…if not, you’ll experience why they consider them dangerous game animals.

As with all dangerous game hunts in Africa, shot placement is important when hunting lion. A good quality soft (Swift A-Frame or Barnes) in a .30 caliber will readily kill a lion. They are not thick skinned, and sometimes expire immediately with a well-placed bullet.
