    I know sable bulls get darker as they get older and I read somewhere that the sable in Moz don't get as black as those in other countries.

    So, are there countries or areas where sable tend to be darker with less brown?

    Never hunted them...yet.:D

    info

    HI, the info you stated is correct. However you probably already know this that cows are very light brown and as you said the bulls get very dark. This also depends on their habitat and vegetation they are eating this all determines their coloration,body and trophy sizes.

    regards.
