    These are great animals to hunt! AH member Art Lambert may well go after one of these on his upcoming hunt. They can run a long way even gravely wounded.

    My son harvested one @95 yds frontal chest and I harvested one 155yds (both ranged) facing away hard quartering--shot behind left side rib and bullet broke right front shoulder with no exit). Both one shot kills DRT. Shot placement is king!! His was with a 25.06 and mine with a 7mm rem mag. Both were phenomenal hunts!! We practiced alot and studied robertson's book Perfect Shot 2. These beautiful animals are tough!!

    I shot this one at 185 yds with Rem 30.06. Bang-flopped him as my PH would say.

    Thanks everyone. This was my son's and my first hunt in SA. I have been doing a lot of reading on this forum and after hunting there I now understand why everyone wants to go back. We went way over our budget but it was well worth it. We hope to return within the next 5 yrs. I also got a 54 7/8" kudu. That was my best hunt and most memorable.
