    Wow! Hope that's not a genetic predisposition! Hard to believe she is old except for the length of those. She has survived well!

    I would shoot that one in a minute. I would have a lot of fun telling my friends about the long and excruciating hunt for the very rare and elusive droop horn oryx!

    To hard to mount the horns on the wall. It would suck a lot of space up in the trophy room.

    I shot one similar a few years ago. Already had a typical one. Apparently a German great-great-grandfather is all it takes.
