Enjoyed reading this and fantastic animals! I had to take a screenshot of that kudu to use as a measuring stick for my first safari.

Mark,
Any chance you're a retired SGM? I ran into a SGM Biggerstaff on one of my deployments many years ago.

Glad you had a great hunt with Gerrit. Kudu has a deep curl. Eland is special also!

Thanks for the report.

Well I'm six months late to the party, but wow! Excellent trophies...that is the Kudu of my dreams!!!

I always wanted to do the photo down the curl of the horn like that when I shot my first kudu, and then when it finally happened this past July, I completely forgot in all the excitement!

Congrats on a wonderful hunt!

Thanks for your report. Looks like you are an excellent shot! What type of practice shooting do you do? Do you spend a lot of time on the range? Congratulations on a great hunt!

I spend alot of time at the range. I hunt hogs at night using thermal with farmers here and have shot 1000s of rounds off sticks.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
