I enjoyed the article on kudu hunting. Several years ago I went to Namibia for kudu. They can be ghosts in the bush. My first shot opportunity came when we trailed a nice kudu to a large path of acacia. I was following the PH and stepping across a small ravine, my rifle in my right hand, my left stretched out for balance so I would not fall, when the kudu emerged from the thick brush about 5 feet away. The PH said , "Shoot!", but of course I was too busy staying upright to do so. There went the shot. My next opportunity came while eating lunch at a waterhole, waiting for warthog. Kudu never come to drink during the day I was told. I looked up and there was a good kudu drinking, so I took that one. My final shot came as we were driving from one place to another and passed a small clearing in the bush. There stood a bigger kudu. All of us were so surprised to see each other, but I recovered first and got off a good frontal shot that dropped him. Luck is so important in hunting sometimes. The first was a 46" and the second 52". Namibia is a great place to hunt.
