Hunting the Grey Ghost where master hunters have stalked their prey for centuries.
Richard Mann from the Empty Cases Blog shot this Kudu during the last minutes of his hunt with Fort Richmond Safaris and described it as one of the best hunts of his life.
“Luck has nothing to do with it. It is hard work, a good PH and a rifle that will shoot.” Richard Mann
Grace and Dignity combined!
The Kudu’s massive spiral horns give it an air of grace and dignity.
Interesting Facts about Kudu.
Greater Kudu are the second largest African antelope.
The horns are present only in the male.
Their cryptic coloring and markings protect Kudu by camouflaging them. If alarmed they usually stand still and are very difficult to spot.
The stripes on a Kudu’s flank are as individual as a fingerprint; similar to the stripes on a Zebra.
Kudu are excellent jumpers, jumping over 7 feet high.
Kudu are very vocal. They communicate with loud grunts, whines, barks and hums.
Kudu normally restrict their movements to a small home range, but the scarcity of food in dry season may prompt them to roam more widely.
