  I'm thinking I see two in the first pic.
 
  I see one in the second facing you just a bit to the right of center at the base of a grove of leaved trees.
 
  FUN STUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  GOING HUNGRY?!?!  How many Kudu can y'all eat at a sitting?
 
  I'm seeing one in the first pic at the upper left corner of the field plus MAYBE one out from the right of that one about 2" and back at the tree line.

I see the one on the left as well, there could be one or more in the pic but I can't clearly ID 'em. 8shots will probably say there's a whole herd of 'em. Big Grin

Wonder just how much a safari round trip from the states would cost, airfare and all expenses......$10K on up?
 
Also how much hassle to bring your guns over for the hunt?

Of course, you'd want to get your trphies mounted too.... I could see a successful trip that included predator species being $30K

  I don't know. Here's an example:

  I figure taxidermy fees are up there.  Then where would you put'em?
