    i would have to take Craig Bottingtons recommendations on where to go over other on this forum...he provided information in his books on some on his facebook site...

    i am not looking to go after a lessor kudu at this time and have performed very little research on it...
    I guess that is what happens when you listen to Craig Bottington....

    James, I accept your apology (if thats what it is) for your condescending remarks. And perhaps you should get your money back for your "recently published and purchased books" that you use for reference.

    I really know who Craig is, have met him at the shows, read most of his books and took a picture with him once, just like thousands of others. I also deeply respect him.

    Just trying to bring a little levity, Bottington versus Boddington.

    The 2 options right now that are open Masailand in Tanzania and Ethiopia. There may be a chance in the future in Uganda

    James,

    It is OK to say your facebook friend with considerable experience is Craig Boddington.

    Jerome, Thanks a lot for posting all the great kudu pics. The hunter who shared my 2x1 hunt in Tanzania in 1985 also took a Lesser kudu, a nice one if I recall. We did not see many but I was only there a week. As to the post about Craig Boddington; Like many here I have met and talked to Craig a couple of times. Seems like a real good guy to me and if I may, he has packed one hell of lot of living into one lifetime and I salute his drive and energy which exceeds my own about 100 fold!
