    Congratulations.
    Those horn bases are quite worn and smooth.
    Any more story behind this kudu?

    Chased him for 3 days. Hardest of all the trophies to get but worth it. Rifle Custom Remington Model 700 30.06 Ackley 2 shots at 300 yards offhand. Took 4 of us to get him on the trailer. Can't wait to see those bases when they are done.

    Respect 6 mm!
    I have a lot of respect for sucessful kudu hunters - they are one of the most difficult hunts (to me) in densely vegetated areas. See my post under Shot Placement Enigma - happened to me in July this year - i am still suffering from this incident!

    Just wondering...as your site name is "6 mm"...whith what caliber did you take this one?
