Going to RSA for my first safari this fall. Hunting PG and the wish list is Kudu, Waterbuck, Gemsbok and Zebra. Package also includes a blesbok, black wildebeast, impala, bush pig and steenbok. That said, I am going into this with an open mind (and checkbook). Simply put, if my PH hits me on the arm and says "Holy Chit", I am probaly going to pull the trigger. Now I realize that there is more to a trophy than just the inches of its horns/antlers. Indeed, I am far from a trophy hunter (one of my most memorable deer hunts was matching wits with old whitetail doe). I also realize that my PH will be there to advise me. However, I really have no understanding as to what constitutes a "representative" or "exceptional" animal. Is a 60" kudu the same as a 200" whitetail? Would a 50" kudu be a 125" basket rack? What about a 30" waterbuck? Would you shoot a 25" waterbuck on the first day of the hunt? I am hoping to get an education on judging animals, so that I can be a bit more informed and realistic with my expectations. Curious what you guys consider to be good, too small, unrealistic, respectable, etc. can anyone point me to a post/web page/article that covers this subject? Thanks for the education.
