South African Cape Kudu

Picked up my kudu today from my taxidermist in Catawissa. Very pleased with the end result. A few more African mounts to get done and I'll be ready for my 2016 Safari. Good huntin'

Re: South African Cape Kudu

Thanks fellas! skippy912 you'd be surprised what a hunt cost for plains game. My first hunt cost $1990.00 with Kubusi Safaris in South Africa. That included 4 animals, guide, tracker, taxidermy prep, food, alcohol, airport transfers, and much more. Yes you have to pay for a plane ticket and taxidery shipping but dollar for dollar one of the best deals in all of hunting. Just watch you don't swallow the hook like I did. Safari #3 coming April of 2016. Really excited about this one as I am taking 9 other hunters 6 who have never experienced the Dark Continent before! Good huntin'

Nice, Big!

I know the Kudu is considered the king of antelope by most and I certainly agree they are magnificent, but for me it's the Gemsbok. Do you have one yet?

I know that it is really reasonable to hunt there. My friend has been there before and he is going back. My wife would freak out if I went by myself. I tried to get her to go with me but she doesn't want anything to do with Africa. My friends wife even tried to convince her to go but she still said no. So my friend and his wife will be back there next spring without us. I can't wait to see your next hunt. I guess I will have to live vicariously through you and my friend.

My favorite is the blue wildebeest. However, I got to agree with you gemsbuck are awesome as well. My brother has taken two in New Mexico while stationed out there in the Army. I was on the hunt with him when he took his male. Freaky horns but an awesome trophy nonetheless. I have only seen a couple on the two safaris I've been on. Rest assured if I get a clear ethical shot on one I will pay the trophy fee. His mounts are beautiful and I'd loved to have one in my trophy room. They are also very good eating as my brother gave me a bunch of meat for going with him. Photobucket is down right now I'll post a pic later for you.
