jeff, it is. I actually passed it up so my dad could shoot it. However I had the pleasure of witnessing him shoot it. He got 2 Kudu's, and the taxidermist mounted (pedestal) The wrong (smaller ) Kudu. At least he has a nice European mount. It was a pureblood Cape Kudu....Chocolate colored pelt with Brown Horns...not one of the Greater/Cape mixes.
