    Default Now this is a kudu

    This bull was shot on the last day of my Australian clients hunt Mark Savage he is just perfect in all the ways an old past his his prime bull with worn down ivory tips and tips turning outwards.

    It will be tough to beat this one this season for the prefect kudu look maybe not length we will see.





    For all of you heading our way to Africa keep dreaming this can happen to you as well.

    I'm going to leave the length out of this one as everyone can see he is big and rather appreciatte the big boy.
    John, you know Mark ask him yourself we have a couple more guys coming over to hunt kudu this year so lets see what else we can get. Three years ago when we started to hunt the property we left 99% of the non fully mature bulls and now its starting to pay off.

    What I can tell you is that the South African record was shot years ago on the neigbouring property so the genes are there and with some management from our side we hope to get the new record in a few years.

    Congratulations Frederick... a good game management in the farms produce awesome results as this one... this is an excelent mature full grown bull... who dares how long really it is ??? not me... is a really awesome bull, and a trophy to dream.

    Sure this will help your Outfitter company in the future to anchor more and more hunters... well done.

    A grand old bull, indeed. He's the type every hunter dreams of taking.
