hey guys, first post on this site i believe. i just wanted to post as i'm curious about an animal i killed in namibia this summer. i hunted a bunch of plains game, and the red hartebeest i took was by far my most exciting and rewarding hunt. the guide said it was a real big one, but as i'd never seen them in real life before, i have no way to judge it. i know it was old, as it's teeth were all worn flat, extremely flat, there was basically nothing left. Also, it had a bunch of charicter. one horn was a bit cracked at the base, and it's right eye was dead. there was nothing inside the socket, an old battle wound or injury. quartering away, layed the shot behind the ribcage and broke the opposite shoulder, and i STILL had to follow up. incredible animals. btw neither of the pics have a good angle on the curl going backwards. but when i held its horn to measure, with my hand against the upright part, and thumb running along the tip, there was at least 3 inches past the tip of my thumb. does anyone have pics of anything GIANT to compare to?
