Cool. Kudus are like ghosts in the brush.

That's awesome, Wouter!

To my eyes, Kudu are the coolest, most majestic-looking horned game animals in all of Africa!

There were 6 bulls in this bachelor group. Then 3 of them decided to put up a show and I got some nice pics. Also very seldom one sees this boisterous behaviour.

I agree 100%.  I've been to Africa twice and I never get tired of looking at them, or hunting for a big kudu bull.  Thanks for the pics!

Ted, personally I think Lion's are the most majestic, but Kudu are definitely right up there.  I'll be honest though, Africa has species unlike any other place in the world.
 
Thanks for sharing these. Those are great!

Kudu are tough to hunt.  You would think with their size and their spiral horns, they'd stick out, but they don't. At all!

From my limited experience, they give you about 2-5 seconds to make a decision and a shot, then they are gone.

Sounds a lot like Axis Stags.
 
Very tough to pick, then when presented with a shot, you have a split second to make a decision to harvest or pass.
 
You have to respect that hunt or else you will get burned.

Matter of fact I took a picture of one recently with Ted. We were driving by and I barely spotted him bedded down in heavy brush.  As I got out of the truck to sneak in on this one, he was alerted by me and stood up preparing to bolt.

Man... how did I manage to inhabit this rock for 47 years without hearing a peep about all those horned lions roaming about the African plains?

They were damn near unstoppable predators as-is. Horns too?

My apologies for the oversight. I retract my previous statement.  Speed reading and Hooked on Phonics didn't work out that well. Poor investment on my parents part I assume.

No worries, Sky; it's understandable. You had a lot on your mind today, stepping out of the closet and all.

I admire you for your courage.

 Thunbs Up       You can be looking right at them and not even see them standing there.  And then they're gone.

I think the kudu is gorgeous, but I think the Sable is out of this world beautiful.
