The Kudu has a short, smooth coat with a general tanned grey or blueish-grey colour. Their coat has 6-10 vertical stripes running on their side and a chevron between their eyes and cheek spots.
Kudu live in thickets and are mixed feeders. Kudu are found in herds of up to 20 cows with young bulls. Big bulls will come to breed in March and April and chase any competition out the herd. The mature bull will leave the herd after breeding season and form bachelor herds.
Hunting Kudu is one of the most challenging hunts due to their incredible hearing, eyesight and smell.
Suitable calibers for hunting Kudu are 270-300 Win Mag rifles.
