Not sure about "aiming", as I've never heard that one, but I do know that they can always see the tips of their horns through the curl. And they use it to break down, or bring closer, branches to feed on.

Definitely my favourite when it comes to antelopes. A couple of pictures taken during our August trip to KNP.

Taken around Punda Maria, a real price winner pair of horns

Another beauty having a nap and taken around Lower Sabie

How can I forget the females

That's areal beauty Spokie :clap:
Incidently , when we visited Mokala last year , I got the impression that the Kudu there seemed just a tiny shade darker in colour than the ones in Kruger . :hmz:
Has anyone noticed this at all , or :hmz: was it perhaps just my imagination :huh:

Stevenson Hamilton had to raise his garden fence to 3 meters as the Kudus ate the plants in his garden in the dry season.

The hair on the tail of the Kudu is used to make an artificial 'fly' which is used to catch tiger fish.

Nice pics Leeukos. :clap: :clap:
There`s nothing like a big old bull turning blue around the neck, staring down at you!
And then the cows with those big radar dish ears. Absolutely stunning antelope!
Thanks Leeukos!
