A friend send me the following photos of an Kudu hunted on his farm in the Ellisras district of Limpopo.

The lucky hunter was Jacques Strauss.

His setup was as follows:

Mathews Switchback set at 70#. He used Easton 340 arrows tipped with a 125gr Sonic broad head. Total arrow weight was 482gr and speed was 245fps.

He shot the Kudu over a distance of 30 yards and the animal went down in about 60 yards.

The horns on this animal is remarkable as this type of spiral is not often seen on a kudu.

Jacques great shot and congratulations.

and did I mention that he had a pass through

VERY UNUSUAL horn configuration.I have seen some narrow ones before but not like that.Often the narrow ones carry more in the curl and thus score better than the wide ones.{Personally I prefer the look of the wide ones in spite of this.) Ah, well! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Regardless, this is a fine specimen.

We seldom get to choose
But I've seen them go both ways
And I would rather go out in a blaze of glory
Than to slowly rot away!

Not everyone gets a kudu.

Getting one with a bow is special. That's a neat trophy.
