    i was just sorting through the zambia top 40 list for sable and noticed the number one in 2007 was 116". i dont have access to the current record books and was wondering if anyone knew what the current record was for game ranch records.

    thanks in advance

    Hey Tony,

    I have looked in the SCI Record Book of Trophy Animals Edition XI, Vol 1. Africa Field Edition. 2010

    The biggest I see listed from RSA was taken in the Pilanesberg National Park by a client named Wayne G Lyster.

    Measurements

    LH - 43 4/8"
    RH - 43"

    RB - 11"
    LB - 11"

    Total score - 108 4/8 - Rank 75

    The rest that ranks higher than this one was all shot in Zambia and Zimbabwe. The number one score is 121 and 3/8 in the books I have. Shot in Zambia in the Mulobezi area.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,

    Jacques
