    Generally blesbok horns get lighter in color with age so the older ones horns are almost yellow. This guy went just over 17".

    Thanks for the replies. I was very happy with mine and felt fortunate to get him on my first Africa hunt.

    Did your PH get any measurements for you on your blesbok? He looks great, I would think he’d make Roland Ward (16-1/2” one horn length) and SCI Gold (46” total horn length plus circumference).

    I got a really nice ram this year, he measured 46 7/8” per SCI:

    I don’t think the PH got measurements, but he did say I was “ ... the main peanut in the pack!” ,when I made the shot! I have the trophy. Will measure as soon as I find tape and ladder . Thanks!
