KUDU

Hunting, shooting for Kudu

Stalking, Bowhunting, Driven big game, Safari, Hunting from a Blind


Kudu, a symbol of strength, nobility and greatness is a widely known trophy game found throughout Africa.

Spiraled, black, twisted horns spring from the males’ forehead, creating a magnificent aura around the beefy antelope- something unforgettable if you are lucky enough to witness one in person.

Their great distribution throughout Africa allows for many hunters to experience the Kudu dream, and many delicious kudu venison dinners afterward. Stalking methods early in the morning and evening yield the best results for the wandering Kudu that shy away from the midday sun during the daytime.

Bulls will also have an interesting hairstyle along with their famous horns- a beard, or short-cropped mane on the front of their necks that stays with them for their entire lifetime.

With a mane splitting the Kudu to the left and right and coiled horns that grow to be the size of an average teenager, there is no question a trophy Kudu bull is a top, on your short list kind of hunt!
