    supposedly the new Texas record for any known bulls here. Just thought it was interesting- I really don't need to hear about how non-native game should not be in Texas yada yada :D

    No doubt there is a high fence hero hunter, with more money than balls that will pay $100k for him. Whatever, I'd rather take a 50" in Africa, than a 60" on my lunch break in Texas. Good looking bull nonetheless.... :)

    That is a nice bull but I don't think it's 67 x 64". If it is let me borrow the tape measure for my next trip. :)

    Kudu ears are 12 inches in length. If you don't think that you can fit five ear lengths along those horns....

    I'll take all the little guys like him that you pass up. :)

    Very nice Bull.

    AGREED-

    If Dries Visser can sell a 64" breeder (Herceles) in South Africa for $600,000, then it might be more profitable to put this bull on the 1st flight to Joberg !! LOL Kinda ironic when i think about it.

    If Kudu ears are 12 inches in length, wouldn't that make them a foot? :E Rofl:

    My kudu ears were only 10" so now what. That is a guide not a hard known fact ever kudu has 12" ears. To me big is big and I am killing that bull if I see him he no doubt he is way over 60"by the way I see him.

    I think we need to watch about all the high fence comments. I agree if he is thrown out in some 5 acre area not a hunt but put him on one of those 20,000 acre high fence ranches in texas I think it will be a hunt for sure. I just hope he make plenty of more 60" kudu and some guys who maybe not able to travel to Africa get to enjoy hunting a kudu one day.

    If I was hunting a place that you pay one fee for a kudu. With paw print at 2500 he is dead were he stands on sight as that is a big bull. I would care less if he is on a 5000 acre high fence as long as he was living there for a few years.He is safe in texas with what I am sure that guy wants for him though. LOL :whistle:

    I e said before I have no problems with a high fence experience. However, I feel certain that this boy ain't roaming around 20000 acres freely. Investments like that are never out of site.

    Just for fun I googled Texas Kudu Hunt. First one I clicked on was 15K. Makes the most expensive trophy fee in Africa sound quite reasonable! Lol
