    Hello all. I'm a newbie to this site and must say that it is extremely informative. This past week I returned from probobly the best 10 hunting days of my life. I went with Warthog Safaris in the Limpopo province and was truely impressed. I was able so score on a great Kudu, Zebra, Gemsbuck, Warthog, three Impalas, Jackal and a Blue Wildebeest. Apparently I shot a great BWB. My outfitter rough scored it at 97 SCI. Im not really a score guy but he's saying this is a monster. Any idea how this will rank?

    Welcom to AH Deadeye5128!!! Your PH was right that Bugger is a Monster, a 97 inch Black Wildebeest will put you in the top 10 ranking about 6. CONGRATS lets see some Pics please.

    Okay. I took a picture of a picture and attempted to post it. Looks like the image is a little small. I'll work on reposting it at full size.
