The Central Kalahari is my favorite of all of Africa I’ve been. On the surface by appearance as dull and harsh as any Africa bush you could imagine during the dry season. But! Explodes with color and life within hours of any rain. The people and wildlife there are very special. I looked again at your kudu in this post after Jaco had posted it in an earlier thread. Absolutely uncanny… it has to be related to one I got near Ghanzi a few years ago. The skills of those San trackers have to be seen and experienced to be believed. Once on tracks, they’ll tell you which animal has a sore foot and which one has heartburn. Another not often mentioned thing about them is their incredible eyesight- 8x at least. I am a good tracker with a lifetime of experience but nothing compared to the San, they are phenomenal! I am fortunate to have discovered Botswana in time for my opportunity. Anyone should seriously consider giving Botswana a go and NKWE has gained a good reputation here on the forum. If you are a dedicated hunter, a few miles tracking eland in that fine, “slick”, gray Kalahari sand behind a San tracker needs to be experienced.
Here’s what I’ve posted about. There is about kudu in that general area! Obviously some good genetics with some common heritable traits all evolved in that region of the Central Kalahari. Took the liberty of c&p @matt vejar ‘s kudu pic to post next to mine.
You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
I ran across a message from you a couple of years ago while I was going through old emails. I have arranged a second bison hunt in Nebraska in September 2024, about 6-years after the first, when my supply of bison meat was exhausted. My email is [redacted].
