    One other thing to mention..... He is in the heart of Big Kudu Country!!!! Saw several studs..... One where I shot the baboons..... would have gone 56" easy!!!! Beautiful ivory tips. I was soooooo close to pulling the trigger. :unsure:

    Dude.... I totally would have smoked him! However,
    1) It was only day two
    2) Bossie had been seeing a 60+ at another concession we were to visit
    3) $$$
    4) I already have a nice one.

    In hindsight..... I should have though!!! ;):cool::mad:

    Very nice!! I knew it would be when hunting with Bossie. You are right about the kudu there are some studs there and I know I’m in the way way minority on this but they just don’t do it for me. Had multiple chances at big ones but not my thing. Great write up!!

    Wonderful report and beautiful animals, especially the buffalo.
    Sounds like you got quite the work out in the mountains.

    Awesome hunt Brad. Great buffalo and those night hunts have to be a hoot. I was reading this report and showing my wife the pictures, she is very jealous. She wants badly to shoot a honey badger. And a brown hyena to boot. All great trophies you took, Congrats.
