Three Horn African Animals

One of our members ScottL posted these pictures a few weeks ago of this three horned bushbuck hunted in Limpopo in the Unusual Trophies of the photo gallery which I wanted to share here in the hunting forum.

Personally I am always intrigued by unusual or abnormal trophies and this one is particularly cool.

Pictures of the 3 horned Limpopo Bushbuck taken with Numzaan Outfitters in 2008. The "floating horn" on the nose of this bush buck is occasionally seen in it's cousin, the Kudu, but to our knowledge this is the first one ever reported on a Bushbuck. The floating horn has been groomed down from rubbing and the end of this broken horn was polished smooth.

This is a close up photo of the third "floating horn" which was on the Limpopo Bushbuck from our 2008 trip with Numzaan Outfitters in South Africa. This and all of our 16 plains game trophies (Zebra, Waterbuck, Impala, Black Wildebeest, Blesbuck, Gemsbuck, Springbok and Nyala) were all taken with our mighty little .260 Remington using the Barnes TSX bullet (no backup shots required from the PH on any animals either, to both our surprise and I think his) after our larger rifle was held up in Customs.

Interesting to see that. An old friend of mine whom I hunted with in Namibia shot a kudu bull with the floating horn on the bridge of the nose as mentioned.

... That is very interesting! I never heard of that before. That certainly would make a nice conversation piece as that's a one in a million Bushbuck!!

Two other three horned Greater Kudu...

Three horned Greater Kudu hunted in Tanzania with PH christophe morio.

Greater Kudu with a third horn...
Kudu shot in Tanzania, in Selous game reserve. Look the 3rd horn!!!! funny! The third is "floating" on the muzzle, which means that it is not attached to the skull but emanates from the skin. This third horn measures 4 cm in height and 3 cm in width. The magnificent kudu measures 52 inches which is remarkable for the Selous.

Three horned Greater Kudu hunted in South Africa by RickP.

The old boy had a third horn in the middle of his forehead... The greater kudu finally obtained on day 5 of the hunt.

Kudu must be more prone to having three horns than other species.

I also have a three horned Kudu taken four years ago in Namibia. I took it on a place about three hours north of Windhoek.

I shot this guy with a Winchester M1886 Extra Light Rifle chambered in 45-70 that was mfg. in 1898.
It was a high school graduation present from my parents.

Hey guys,

I am proud to say that I have also hunted a bull with three horns with a client a couple of years ago. Here is some pictures of the bull.

We had to offcourse shoot it on the highest hill/mountain in the area! :reyes:

Best regards,

Jacques

On one part of the ranch we also occasionally shoot "3" horned kudu's as we refer to them, kudus that have a third small growth of horn material slightly above and between the eyes.

Look between the eyes above the v

This Vaal Rhebuck also wasted some effort trying to grow a horn out of his nose.

Pronghorn antelope and bighorn sheep also occasionally grow third horns and they are also only attached to the skin.

Another three horned kudu taken at Rhinoster hoek a few days ago. Well worn, he certainly used his face a lot looking at the scarring.

Another third horn kudu... Similar to other pictures here, my kudu also had a third horn. Taken in April 2017 in Limpopo SA. Incidentally also had 52" horns.

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.
