    You never know what you're going to come across when your in the bush, very cool find! If you could get it back home that would be a great addition to the trophy room, a great conversation piece. Thanks Jeff.

    This is a fairly common occurance with Kudu bulls, something which I have found on a number of occations. The law of the bush is "survival of the fittest", obviously these two never got to claim the title!
