    Excellent pic, what was the horn length on this monster? 57-58"?

    The Eastern Cape Kudu are a smaller species than the Greater Kudu - but that one has gorgeous symmetry and lovely ivory tips.

    You must be a happy bloke!

    Blimey! What a monster - you must be delighted. Interested to read more of your experiences on safari. I've thought of doing something similar but never got round to organising it.

    Wow

    Wow

    What a great picture of a great animal, and the kudu is nice as well!

    Thats a heck of a nice kudu, you must be delighted, I am very jealous - I can't wait to go to Africa, another couple years away but pictures like that just make me want to go even more.

    Do you have any other pictures to whet all our appetites?

    Cheers

    I use a 7mm, though it's a Rem Mag. 140gn Nosler Partition. Bullet choice is important. Make sure you use a good quality partition. The Noslers have taken from Eland to Duiker.

    Back out there in July and October for some more.

    Bear hunting in Canada tomorrow. Off to Heathrow in three hours. Kenya is great. Spent a lot of time there between 1980 and 2000. Haven't been back since then. Just to RSA. Enjoy your safari Gr1ffer.

    There are only three species of Greater Kudu.

    The smallest is T.s.Cottoni from the Chad area, named after Powell - Cotton. Easter Cape Kudu are T.s Strep which are found all across the souther parts of Africa.

    Still a nice bull though in the photo, good ivory tips and full 3 curls and kicking out again at the top. I would guess between 55 -57 inches, a real keeper.
