    Not as impressive as your pics Jerome, but here's the biggest I have ever managed.
    Shot in 1990 Kasonso, Zambia.
    Poor pics as light was fading and lions were all around us, as they had been hunting the herd I shot this from.
    We cut it up after dark and they never left us, coming within 20 yards at times.
    Not sure on measurements as it never made it home to be a trophy. The PH reckoned 47 " though. Not sure about that !

    Once they get that big it is astounding how close they all look in width 40 to 43 on a Buffalo.
    Three inches is only a little over tow thumb widths on either side of those horns.

    I know all the old hats at shooting Buffalo want those big old worn down guys, and it make sense from a breeding and sustainability perspective, but for my first one i want a 100 R'r.

    Hope you find yours.

    You see that guy, shoot him. It will be right in your ball park for size for what you are looking for.

    Im with you brick. to heck with those conservative minded guys. I just give in and figure they will always just be better than me and I'm fine with that. how many guys do you know here in america that pass up the herd bulls in our elk herds because they are "breeding" bulls? Yeah thats what I thought. all my friends do it to. Just last year my best buddy passed up a 430" free range elk because he was a young bull and still breeding. he hated the thought of shooting him when there was an old past his prime bull all busted up somewhere in the thick stuff just waiting to die. He could hardly wait to find his 250" bull that he passed up that 430"er for.

    My photos shows a 42 1/2 inches with great drop and bosses.

    A live on the hoof one was guessed to be in the 41 inch mark that is also there for you to see.

    Can't Waite to see what you bring home.

    I'll bet it made you happy. If you did not shoot it you would be VERY sad, given those circumstances.

    That is the narrowest looking "43" inch buff I have ever seen.

    Are you sure about these measurements. 5/8 of an inch difference?
    That top one looks like a much bigger buffalo.

    Photo perspective must make such a difference if those scores are correct.

    Yes, depends on how you take the pic.
    Showing the bosses will look like the spread is reduced, reversibly looking from a lower level will show more spread... you can take various pics and convince people it is not the same buff...
    Thank you for congratulation, this buff was exactly what I was looking for...old, well-worn and bad-tempered. And I got even more than I asked with the charge, he was major pissed-off, this was one of the most exciting hunting time ever!

    I guess the upper one is the the one that measured 46 and both are shooters for sure, but I'd take that lower one everytime over the first. That's my dream buff there!!
