Yesterday’s post was on my harvest of a greater kudu in 2009. Greater Kudu are one of the most popular and common of spiral horned antelope species in Africa. This makes them affordable for the average Joe. A not so common spiral horned antelope is the beautiful mountain Nyala. One of my clients and already legendary hunter, Marc Watts harvested another amazing Spiral Horned antelope species-the mountain nyala. Marc’s mountain nyala was harvested in Ethopia in November 2008 and scored a remarkable the 102 5/8 SCI, with 42 inch horns and 10 1/2 inch bases placing this exceptional animal at #2 on the alltime record book list.
Not only is this rare mountain nyala a trophy for the ages, the story of Marc hunting in African “mountain goat” country for this rare trophy makes the harvest a truly great story. Read the full story on the SCI website http://www.scifirstforhunters.org/article/index.cfm?action=view&ArticleID=3202
What makes Marc’s harvest that much more remarkable is that this is the second top 5 African spiral horned antelope harvested by Marc. Here is a photo of Marc’s top 5 Lord Derby Eland.
