What would you do if this brute came walking straight towards you?

This bull shows how good management can produce some outstanding trophies even on low fence areas!

If you want a 100% free range kudu hunt send me a message or email and we can start to plan for 2024, 2025 or 2026!

This is not an easy hunt, and there is no guarantee!

Sorry for the bad quality, its a screenshot from a video I took recently! Im not sure if or how to upload the short video.

Perfect thanks!
 
Here the short video!

 
Wow, beautiful kudu. Based on your judgement, is he a mature bull?
 
Nice wide spread. Looks fairly long but would say the curls are a bit shallow?
My thoughts too, will look very impressive, but I'm not sure it will score extremely high.
Who of our experts could give their input?

With the width of that first turn, he’d score nicely. What part of the Karoo is that, more open veld than the area we’re in?

Yes not the deepest turns but quite typical for the kudus in our area! They are not like the kudu in Limpopo and further north!

Yes he is a mature bull. I would like it if his tips could turn just a little more and flair out. We have some bulls like that around. But definitely a shooter bull

Here is another bull, not a great picture but his tips flair out a little more.

We are between Colesberg and De Aar.
 
Those are shooters for sure. In the headlights I once watched a cow and calf (yearling?) jump an eight foot fence. They kinda climbed the last part. Impressive animals. My PHs say kudu are pretty much free roaming no matter what fence is up. One property owner told me waterbuck can move across fences too. They just tear them up to go through.

Poor bugger was hiding behind the only bush within 60 km.
Nice bull.
 
That pretty much what I picture as a proper Kudu, to me. Awesome bull!
