New SCI Record - White Rhino Bull

This Southern White Rhino Bull will beat the current No.1 SCI record when taken.

Front Horn: Length 36", Base 33" (length is really 36 3/8, but used 36 to be conservative)
Back Horn: Length 12" 4/8, Base 27" 1/8
Total SCI Score: 108" 5/8, conservatively well over 3" bigger than current No.1 SCI record Southern White Rhino.

I think the cost to hunt this guy would have been more like $3,000-4,000 per inch.

When I hunted in the Free State in South Africa in 2005, I was hunting with two Professional Hunters.  For several days while I was on that property, one of the PH's was on his cell phone many times trying to locate a "World record" white rhino for some American hunter.  The hunter was some multi-millionaire who cared more about inches than dollars. 

From his phone calls, my PH found a white rhino on one farm that was around 35" and the owner wanted somewhere over $100,000 US to shoot it.

Man, somebody has some serious stones on him to paint that logo on that rhino. "OK...you've got a great shot and he doesn't see you. Just put the round right between the uprights of the 'U'..." Big smile

High fence?

Wonder if the animal is semi-domesticated?

Sponsor logos on race cars is one thing, but on animals it just doesn't seem right

Re: New SCI Record - White Rhino Bull

This surely is a excellent trophy rhino, just remember there will be shrinkage of a few inches in the 60 to 90 day green drying period. Only after that the trophy can be measured officially. Never the less - very nice rhino!

That is not an animal I'd like to corner. Pretty darn impressive.

Dumb question, but they don't

Dumb question, but they don't actually kill the animal, right?  I sawe a show the other day where Chirs Dorsey was in Africa and "shot" a rhino.  It was with a tranq gun.  After photos and maybe some scientific stuff, the rhino was awakened and took off.......

 

I don't even think rhinos can be killed on game farms...
