    I was talking to a SA outfitter yesterday at a local hunting show and he mentioned that mnt reedbuck has recently been added as a TOPS animal in the Limpopo and that he had rec'd a "fine" bc he needed to export one killed before the addition to TOPS (which sounds like major BS). I know that common reedbuck are listed as TOPS, but he was adamant it was for mnt reedbuck.
    At any rate, that is the first I have heard of this and couldn't find anything on my google search about it. Anyone in SA know?

    I did run across this handy table though :)
