    Yes. Known as a Kuland.

    I shot a big Kuland bull with a client before. I will see if I can find the photo. You can very clearly see the hybridisation on this bull.

    My guess would be that crossbreeds are not of some trophy value,
    so possibly they can get on good cull or management hunt fees or even less?

    I have just cropped the extra legs from 4-horned kudu, so the others wont be confused with few additional legs as I was.... and attached it back!

    BTW, Good photo!

    And giant sable is simply breathtaking! 4 horn kudu.jpeg

    That Kudu x Nyala hybrid is a gorgeous animal!

    I think Eludu (especially if it combines the hunter eluding abilities of both its parents) has a better ring to it than Kuland but considering I had never heard of one before, I don't have any say in the matter.
