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.

Great looking trophies. Any full body mounts?

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.
