    Hi Tony, can you tell us about that tranquilliser job? I presume he’s been tranquillised. Is it part of a breeding program? What are the costs for a breeder to buy into genes like that? How old is that bull, and what are your thoughts on life longevity? I’ve read conflicting information about kudu longevity.

    Yes
    Our Vet use M99, Kudu bulls take more than a Buffalo, Louis Greef is one of the best in the industry, this bull is about 6 years old and we estimate that he will 74" by the time he is 8 years plus. He lives in a 1000 hectares with a lot of females that he breeds alone. He was seen on a private game preserve a view years ago he still lives on that sam preserve just in a controlled informant. When he was bought he was worth over $1 mil USA and he has made a lot. I am just the sole hunter of Tembani Wildlife. And our clients have the privilege to see and hunt some less than 10% of the animals on this 10 000 acres area. A Kudu like that can live up to 15 years plus but yes they don't do well traveling and holding areas. We Wild Wildebeest Safaris and Tembani move our animals at a age less than a year and then they stay in a Hunting area till they get of hunting age and then are hunted there.

    Thank you, Tony. I had heard two different maximum life expectancies: about seven and about fourteen.
