    Holy Crap, Thats my guess, that's one you would have to change your short on after seeing (pause for effect). And if you got the shot you'd be changing them for the same reason.

    Yea it is a nice picture except it ain't a kudu. I is an American antelope with Kudu horns. Look at the ears, way too little and the nose vee is under the eyes not further down.

    You could be right. It could be photoshop or something like that. I am not sure about the ears, a big animal have smaller ears meashered towards overall headsize, than a smaller one. The chevron markings can be just below the eyes on kudu, take a look at this photo:

    I have seen this picture on another forum site....rumor is that it is breeding bull in RSA and is off limits to hunters bullets.
