Nyala

Go Back

(Tragelaphus angasii)

This beautiful animal is a wonderful trophy to add to your list.  The males are grey-ish in color with the female  more of a redish brown, both with vertical white stripes ranging from 3-14 per animal.  Only the males have horns.  They are non-teritorial.

The males have distinctive orange colored legs .  They tend to keep to bushy areas.

The Hunt:

Early mornings and late afternoon is the best times to hunt these majestic animals.

My weapon of choice for a nyala hunt is a .270.
