    As I said I will be going to SA in May with my dad. We won the hunt at an SCI dinner in 2010. I will be using Maximum Safaris. I am looking forward to the hunt with my dad. This will be a trip of a lifetime! I plan on taking an Impala, Warthog, Blesbuck, Gemsbuck, and a Blue Wildebeest. I am now few weeks away and cant wait to get the pics posted!

    Congradulations! If you have the money and there are nice kudu on the property, do yourself a favor and shoot one. I talk to guys that still have kudu nightmares...for letting one get away(lol). They truly are a majestic animal!

    Marius, those are serious problems (lol). I can understand them though....I remember on my last trip...I was still looking for that special kudu on the last day, and I got one that was 55+ on one side and 53+ on the other...the bases were 11.5 on one and 11.75 on the other side....on the last hour of the hunt....to say I was happy, is truly an understated phase!

    Kudu surely is majestic i have hunted twice 21 days with a very good friend from Sweden and we had many Kudu in the area and good ones and i could not get him to take one this stays with me now 10 years later, we took from Genet cat to Lion but no go with Kudu . Still wonder what i did wrong.

    I will keep the kudu in mind but I think for this trip the cost might be a bit much. I love the gemsbuck and am really looking for that one. I am on the fence about the Wildebeest though. I have gone back and forth with that and the zeebra. I told PH I wanted the Wildebeest and I know I can change when I am there. I guess I will just see where the wind takes me when I am there.

    Rick, I don't know how many times you will go to Africa....but I have looked over your outfitters website....and would not suggest the wildebeest or zebra. I love the zebra..they can be hunted elsewhere a lot cheaper....same with the wildebeest....but he should have some really nice kudu...and the kudu price is fair...and you are bound to get a good one if you look for 2 full culls with the tops coming out the sides. Just my two cents....I don't want to sound pushy but it's something to consider.
