CVC..................no bongo are a large robust antelope. They do live in the jungle and they are hunted in Cameroon, CAR, Congo, etc A big bull is an awesome trophy weighing 500 poinds or more. It is a member of the spiral horned antelope (kudu, bushbuck, eland, nyala, lesser kudu, etc) They have a dark red body with white stripes like a kudu. Old bulls become almost black over the head and shoulders.
You are probably thinking about the small antelope like the various duikers.
If you go on a straight trophy bull elephant hunt about the cheapest hunts I know of are in Zimbabwe and again, are elephant only. They go for around $39,000 including the trophy fee.
In other areas like Tanzania you would need to book a 21 day safari to be eligible for an elephant licence and by the time the dust settles you will be more in the area of $65 to $70,000 as long as you don't shoot anything else.
Yes ..............it is a rush. I have been in and around them when hunting buffalo and would love to do the elephant one day, but that is a lot of money and not within my means I am afraid. I will continue to buy lottery tickets and hope for the best.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
