Wow, interesting post! Eland are my favorite antelope to hunt. As far as most beautiful, it would be tough for me to choose between kudu and nyala.
@Kevin Peacocke ,

You should see if @BRICKBURN can add a poll to the original post. Just my 2 c

Maybe make it 5 choices and 1 "other"

Based on the choices I have read through already: Sable, Gemsbok, Bongo, Kudu, Nylala, other.
Good idea, be my guest. Ok, list five, choose one and we can add up after a while, maybe a few days. @BRICKBURN?
1.Bongo - coloration - it’s not even close IMHO.
2. Sable
3. Nyla or sable could be interchangeable.
4. Grant’s Gazelle or kudu - tough call for me.
5. Kudu or oryx/gemsbok

Similar to kudu but more hair and colors. From a distance, nyala appear blue to me.
1. LDE
2. Nyala
3. Kudu
4. Black Lechwe
5. Bongo
6. Sable
7. Grants/Roberts
8. Springbok
9. Thompson
10. Harnessed Bushbuck
I almost put these guys on my post. What a beautiful animal. Love the horns. But expensive to hunt no?
Tanzania, in general, is expensive but trophy fee on GG was just $800.
One thing we can all agree on is that all the ones mentioned are beautiful. It's hard to rank them. There are a few I don't have such as harnessed bushbuck, LDE, mountain nyala and gemsbok/oryx. Maybe someday! I do have a fringe-eared orxy from TZ but still want a gemsbok from Namibia or somewhere.
