Those horn bases are quite worn and smooth.
Any more story behind this kudu?Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!
Chased him for 3 days. Hardest of all the trophies to get but worth it. Rifle Custom Remington Model 700 30.06 Ackley 2 shots at 300 yards offhand. Took 4 of us to get him on the trailer. Can't wait to see those bases when they are done.

I have a lot of respect for sucessful kudu hunters - they are one of the most difficult hunts (to me) in densely vegetated areas. See my post under Shot Placement Enigma - happened to me in July this year - i am still suffering from this incident!
Just wondering...as your site name is "6 mm"...whith what caliber did you take this one?FHM3006
