Chit, link doesn't work for me.


Give it a name, apply human sentiment, and its no longer a wild animal its a Disney character.

I call BS on this video.  Yeah, it looks impressive hauling that big critter on his back like that, but he's probably only doing it to get a quick video to promote his safari business.  As soon as the cameras are turned off he leaves it to the black guys to haul it the rest of the way.  As is the usual!!

I know of other PH's that carry animals out... you can't drag them... you won't have hair if you do... if you can't drive the truck to them, you either carry or skin and quarter...

Don't know anything about African game or Kudu. But that critter he's carrying looks larger than the average whitetail buck. What do one of those Kudu weigh Dan?

Not only is that guy carrying that critter out. He's carrying it through the thorn brush too! 

Good guy to have around camp!!!

Roughly 400-600lbs. About the same as an Elk. This could be Cape Kudu at maybe a bit less in general, but not much, 350-450 maybe. Thats live weight.

If that recent he's right at his peak weight for the year going into their rutting season (May) He'll lose condition as their winter/dry season is coming. Think more wet/dry than 4 seasons.....Hot and raining.....Dry and cool (near freezing in some places)

This is the biggest bodied male  Kudu I've shot and we used a winch to load him......just over 500lbs full weight. Most of time you don't gut in field and recover whole and this one was hung on scale. Peak weight right at beginning of May and the rut, good rains that year.

Does PA chest chart work for this?

What a great picture!  Congratulations on a beautiful animal my friend! Kudu has to be among the best looking animals in Africa! IMO.

Not to derail the thread.....but you gotta tell me about that beautiful rifle in the pic too!

First animal ever in Africa; guess you know why I got hooked huh?

Wood stock Blaser R93 in 300RUM and 180gr Trophy Bonded Bearclaws, Kahles 3-10 scope. That frame is still my favorite rifle, terrific trigger.

Frontal shot, bullet recovered under skin on the backside of ham. That barrel was a hell of a shooter. Sold it as it was always a powder burner and a lot of recoil for a relative light gun and using a 300WBY as a fast 30 cal now for the  Blaser rifles now.

The same professional hunter hauled out a blue wildebeest bull about 3 years ago as well , it works on flat land but where we hunt in the mountains its impossible and youhave to skin and quarter .

Kudu ( the grey ghost ) is truly a signature African trophy and they are usually on the top of the list for hunters .

Hunted with this guy last year. He runs an outfit out of South Africa with camps in Namibia also. He is only 20, strong as a bull as you can see and a hell of a good kid
