Great photos lhrbull!

The kudu is a monster.  We tried reallyhard to get a Blue Wildebeest on my last trip but could not get close enough to them.  I hear they can be tough to knock down.

We are really hoping to get my dad onto a Nyala in October in Zim.  Hopefully that will work out for him.  Very nice animals!

Thank you Rob very much for posting the pictures. I now know why they say if you go to Africa that you will go back because it was an incredible time. With all the different animals and looking for a trophy made it a very awesome experience. Some days to get two animals in one day was really different than hunting all season for one animal.

Very odd...

The photos I posted on this thread, and another one have disappeared.  I am not sure why. 

I found them and they are posted in this reply.

no the kudu and wilderbeest will be pedistal wall mounts, nyala and bushbuck will be on a pedistal together, impala shoulder mount, zebra rug,and the warthog will just be a bleached skull. Wife not to impressed with shoulder warthog mounts. the gentlemen who asked about ammo didn't even get into my box of 50 the bullets were the new nosler e-tips in 180gr out of a 300 weatherby. one shot kills on everything but the kudu and impala second was needed on it so it did go into a deep canyon. the ph believed he would have died from the first lung shot but didn't want to take the chance and have to go into the canyon after it.
