    You guys are killing me with these photos.

    Forget the thread about a Kudu only hunt, how about a Bushbuck only hunt!

    For your own big Limpopo bushbuck , contact Hannes Els of Limcroma Safaris.
    That pic is of one on his trophy room wall, taken on his farm. Mine was nice, but not that nice!

    Although I had no plans to hunt another Cape BB, I could not pass up the opportunity when it arose a few weeks ago. Like kudu, they are such a fun animal to pursue. Now I need to go after a Limpopo BB.

    Limpopo bushbuck taken in the Northwest province of South Africa last week. They are endemic to the region, this is an extremely hard hunt in thick cover.

    Those bushbuck look awesome. They are definitely on my list, 2nd behind a kudu. Now I just got to stop spending money and start saving!

    I might be hardpressed to find another Bushbuck whose horns I like better or one as old, but I look back wishing I had shot the one we walked up on at 30 yards also.
    He had a pretty face and coat. But, If Lana could have caught up with us quick enough, she could have shot him.

    Marius might have another one lurking around.
    It was really funny when we saw him. Marius looked at him but thought he must have been looking at a limb above his head.
    At first he said "it looks heavy" then, a second later, he said "that's not a limb above his head, he is very long too. you need to shoot him".

    Hahaha Jerry,
    Remember it as if it was yesterday. Think that was the first ram we have ever shot that had hair slip on his face before we even shot him. Old warrior that!

    All game animals around the world are interesting to me and that includes kudu, so don't read more into this than what it is but:
    I'd rather hunt bushbuck than kudu, even if their respective price tags were reversed (thankfully that is not so).

    Well I learned that horn and body size don't go together. Some of the younger ones have longer horns than the old big body veterans. You can tell an old one by the ring around his neck, kind of like leather.
