Bushbuck

Go Back

(Tragelaphus scriptus.)

This is a challenging hunt seeing that the bushbuck is shy and elusive. They are browsers. When threatened they signal with a dog-like bark. Only the rams carry horns and the females are lighter in color than the rams. Like their name suggest they prefer to keep to the bush. A wounded bushbuck is known to be very dangerous and will charge . 

 

The Hunt:

Early mornings and late afternoon with a .270 or .243.
