The Limpopo Waterberg has proven to be a prime destination for top quality Kudu and I'm sure that we will all appreciate the magnificent specimen below.

This 61" inch Kudu taken with a fellow Outfitter will have those Kudu addicts between us dreaming of that once in a lifetime trophy.

Rowland Ward uses the longest horn measurement to make the book. So, only one horn is required.

Chris was hunting for Klipspringer in the mountains a couple of weeks ago with a client and while doing so they saw what appeared to be a very nice Kudu bull on a mountain slope some 400 yards away.

They were not really equipped for shooting at that range with the .375H&H his client was carrying and as the bull had already seen them - chances of getting closer were slim so they decided to leave him alone...

His next client had better luck on his side and while hunting the same general area they came across (what he thinks might be) the same bull at less than 100 yards away. His client's .300WM did the trick and the bull was down...

The Waterberg mountains have a good reputation for producing quality kudu but even he was surprised when they taped this guy...

The left horn (which at first appeared to be the longer one) measured 59 6/8" and both the client and Chris were ecstatic. But imagine their surprise when they measured the right horn at 61"!

I've had a passion for a 60"/plus for a very long time. Can't wait to hear about it, and congratulations to all involved. Magnificent.

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.
