Hi fellow members,

I just want to share this incredible trophy I had the privilege of hunting recently. This klipspringer measured a whopping 6 4/16”and was as old as the mountains themselves!

We have some more of this class roaming the mountains on our Limpopo farm. We are extremely selective about off take of klipspringer and limit the quota to just a hand full each year. This allows us to take an average of 5”+ trophies every year.

Here are some more that we have been able to take pictures of recently and harvest over the years!

If you still need a monster klipspringer to add to your tiny 10 or just want one of these amazing animals to be displayed in your trophy room contact me and we will make it happen!

As it turns out, my taxidermist just discovered the cape of my klippy is slipping hair. He was very distraught when he showed me the photos. I said, no worries, I'll go get another one. You may have made my short list for 2025!
Those are dandy rams.
 
Excellent Klippy. You'd have to do a lot to find a better one. Congrats

Yes, unfortunately klipspringer are very prone to hair slip! Fortunately we have not had any issues yet with any that we have hunted. But send me a message when you are ready to book and we would love to accommodate you and get you on one of these giants!
 
What a beauty or beauties , thank you for posting, I very much enjoy hunting Klippy's & Bush Buck .

I got a Monster in Zim in the old days & the Taxidermist stole it, hunted them in the Limpopo a lot but only managed a representative model since.

But on one of the properties I was to hunt there sure are some huge Klipspringer, I think maybe the number #1 is from there, could be close to your block ?

What a pity that the taxidermist stole your trophy! I can only imagine how you must have felt!

We have hunted numerous top 20 but most of my clients don’t want to register them so they stay unofficial scores.

But it’s not always about the measurement, the excitement of the chase is what makes a hunt truly satisfying, and the chance of taking a big trophy is just the cherry on top!
 
Not sure if it is appropriate to post these here, delete if not ?

This is my one that was stolen & the Big guy from Limpopo.

Spain, i booked through a consultant, i book almost everything through him now and he's done me right. his contact 724 986 7206 if interested and he will have more info to share,
I hunted elephant with Luke Samaris in 2005. It was my fourth safari and I tell you he is a fine gentleman the best. I got the opportunity to meet Patty Curtis, although never hunted with him but enjoyed our conversation around our tent in the Selous. Very sad for a tough guy to leave this world the way he did. Let’s pray the murderers are caught. I hope to see Luke in Nashville.
