Sharing Interesting Facts about Kudu Hunting in Africa

By Angie Turner Subscribe to RSS | June 13th 2012 | Views:

Hunters who visit Africa make sure that they go for kudu hunting or else their hunting is not fully enjoyed. His popularity lies only behind that of impala in Africa. The biggest distinguishing feature of this antelope from the others is its big, twisting horns. Such horns are only found in the males while the cows lack them completely besides having prominent ears. Their fur has a shade of pale-grey to brownish-grey with vertical straps white in color that have been responsible to nickname it as “grey ghost” by many..

The kudu hunting is easier in the day time when they take rest protecting them from the intense heat of the sun. Otherwise they form herds of 6-12 with mostly cows and calves and keep roaming from one place to another. These facts are necessary for the hunters. These animals are agile and can jump pretty high despite their heavy weights. Besides their huge bodies, their horns are weighty too. Still they are able to move at brisk pace. The kudu hunting is exceedingly challenging as they have impeccable senses, cunning and elusive. They can be most regularly found near ponds or water bodies as they keep on drinking water from time to time. Assessing the better hunter of the bulls is performed based on the size of their horns. As the curves make it difficult to find the longer horn, finding the winner of the kudu hunting contest is tough. Though 50 inches long horn is quite common, it can also be over 60 inches.

Hiding in the feeding areas in the morning and evening or around pools during the day is highly productive for kudu hunting. Hunting them is not too difficult with the average rifles although it’s recommended to have the big ones.
