apparently this breeder kudu has died and was 76"+ and 74"+ per side. Aside from any personal feelings one may have for the breeding side of hunting, this bull was indeed world class!

IMO, deep curls like that don't necessarily make the animal more beautiful. Kudos to him for keeping such an animal alive.

I find Kudu the hardest animal for me to judge. The guides in Africa are amazing at estimating Kudu size. I saw a 70" Kudu mounted with big deep curls in a lodge. The old kudu looked really short on length and I was guessing upper 50's.

I do like the look of a tall set of horns but would not pass on a 70" plus animal.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
