    I wonder if anyone can shed some light on this for me, i have always known South African Bushbuck minimum to be 15 inches, however upon going into Roland Wards official website i see that they have them listed as minimum 14 inches, is this just a typo or have they reduced the minimum??? i emailed the address given on their website with zero reply, can anyone shed some light on the matter

    There are instances of Rowland reducing minimum scores: Buffalo used to be 45 they are now 42.

    Not sure if this is the case here. Most publications still list 15 as the minimum. Although the "subspecies" seem to get some special treatment.

    They lowered it despite having the biggest record of all sub-species???
