That is so absolutely untrue. Everyone knows that sometimes older Kudu are propped up with sticks and that sometimes it looks like they have been dead a few days. All the 60”+ Kudus ( one so far) that I have found were that way.
Nice kudu, congrats! That is the shape and configuration that fools those inexperienced at judging them. Some good kudu can even terminate with inward pointing tips but they still have that big first sweep. Your kudu shows exactly where the length comes from on many good bulls… the first wide sweeping curl.
Great Kudu! And outstanding rifle. Well DoneThe Kudu is simply a fantastic animal....after more than 8 years of looking for a 60"+ bull, I finally connected on this bull in May, 2023, with Kuche Safaris. Its my dream animal!
Harvested this bull with a Rigby Highland Stalker in 275 Rigby and a 139gr Absolute Hammer projectile from Hammer Bullets. He went 62" and 61.25".
