    Well as Bill Clinton might say, I guess that all depends on what your definition of reasonable is. I prefer the flat fee - regardless the size - type of trophy fee and not the graduated system some use.

    The best place in our area is R10,000. They took three at 63"+ last year.

    Those tried and true prices are all right there, don't worry.

    "Local" prices VS "International" prices.

    Just so you know.

    I think the flat fee is the appropriate price. Who sits there and measures the animal while it's on the hoof and several PHs I've talked to say judging kudu is the toughest animal to judge. It's just another raquette to make money off a hunter!

    It is unfortunately supply and demand ! I prefer a flat fee too ! It is amazing that in other countries hunters would pay outrages prices for trophies . Elk hunts at 10 - 15 k is not unusual. There are outfitters that market these exceptional trophies and the demand for these by hunters push the price up !

    $2500 to $3000 sounds about right.

    A little luck and hunting in areas known for producing them doesnt hurt either.
    The journey is the reward.
