    You got some nice trophies there! What cal is your CZ? Tell your PH to next time keep the power lines out of the kudu pictures! Hate it when that happens.

    Wow, Look's like you had a great time. You took some wonderful trophies. I hunted there last July with an 84 year old friend who took a 59.5 inch Kudu. Your Kudu looks very large. How Big? Who was your PH ? I hunted with Craig and my friend was guided by Hans! Was DelMarie still doing the cooking? What a sweet lady.

    Peter and his team do a great job, I know Delmarie is still there and continuing to do a great job. Hans has moved on which is sad because he was a fantastic PH. Congrats to the OP on what looks like a great trip.

    Way to go P3FE, I hunted Cruisers in 010 and Hans was my PH. Hans has moved on though and Delmarie is still there. They have a concession with huge Impala just could not make it happen plus no shooting from the truck.

    Your friend must of shoot the Kudu I was after for three days.
