Considered by many to be the most beautiful antelope in the world, sable trophy fees have never been more affordable! Here’s some of the great bulls we’ve taken this season so far.

Wow! You Know how to pose animals for pictures just great. That is a lot of Sable. How many years before there of that caliber of animal in photos?

Do they taste as good as they look?

They are fantastic table fare. The become huntable mature bulls after seven yrs or thereabouts.

Those are some beauties !!

A mature sable bull will display secondary horn growth at the base of the horns. That’s indicative of age and maturity.

Nice bulls!!

Another great bull hit the salt today.

Absolutely beautiful animals, in my opinion the prettiest of all the antelope. How come some of the bulls are jet black and others are a brown or even redish color? Does that have something to do with maturity?

01-Jul-19
They’re all black but where we hunt the soil is reddish in color and they roll in the dirt. All of them will be a bit brown around the ears.

We’ve hunted our sable in the Western Cape an hour from Cape Town, the North West on the Botswana border, and the Limpopo in three areas from the Waterberg to the Zim/Bots border. All of our areas have great sable.

The photo quality once downloaded here is not the best but you can really see the secondary growth at the base of the horns in the last photo with the female bowhunter. You want to hunt mature bulls and they only get that secondary with age. These are the bulls to take.

From: AZ~Rich

The vast majority of mature bulls are black but a rare few keep a reddish tone. "The skin tells its own story and is light brown when the sable is born, and then turning darker and darker with age. Females and young bulls are recognizable from this brownish color, especially around the legs, while a mature bull will turn completely pitch-black in time".

Meanwhile at the waterhole today...

I agree with others, that they are the most beautiful of all the plains game antelope. Ken, you stated the trophy fees have never been more affordable. What is the trophy fee cost on your sable?

From: wild1
03-Jul-19
On the KMS website it says $7,100. (Mozambique), or $4,100. (RSA). Not sure if there's an additional charge for length of horn(s). That's for one animal.

04-Jul-19
Trophy fees vary. In Mozambique there are government fees to consider as well. In SA our standard trophy fee on sable is $5750 with the exception of the Limpopo where it’s $4500.

Currently in Botswana so I hope the above trophy fees link comes thru. Poor signal here.
