Go Back

(Taurotragus oryx)

This is the largest of Africas horned antelope.  Are known to outweigh a mature buffalo. These beautiful animals are quite impressive jumpers regardless of their size and weight.  They would browse more than graze, drink water when available, but the moist in their food is generally enough for them.  Both sexes have horns with bulls having thicker and more massive bases .  The cows have more parallel and vertical horns. 

The Hunt: 

Walk and stalk following tracks with a 300

Exceptionally good meat.
