Judging Waterbuck

Not a lengthy boy @ 23 inches but massive bases and secondary growth and thick weighted horns ,bases almost touches this was only reason i took him.

I was hunting Bushbuck along the Limpopo & on the fence around where I was staying was this head, shot by a Biltong hunter who didn't want to pay the Trophy fee, so some crazy bugger hung it on the fence !

I've hunted this property before as well. BIG Waterbuck there! I shot a 30" waterbuck, very nice old bushbuck ram and crocodile there in 2017. Dang, it doesn't seem like it was that long ago.

Wow @jasyblood that is a very very nice Bull, I saw a few nice ones there & one like yours on the Botos side.

Your bull is most definitely a shooter !

Early in the morning on the same day I shot this bull, there was bull crossing over from Bots that was bigger than the one I ultimately shot. It spotted us before it got to the SA side and headed back to Botswana.

Do you still have this rifle? I'm in the KC area on business and I'm very interested.
