Waterbuck

Go Back

(Kobus ellipsiprymnus)

This animal has an oily skin which when it comes in contact with the meat it will give the meat a terrible taste.  This animal must be skinned with caution in order to save the meat.  They love water and like to stay close to it.  They have a solid white rump patch .  Also known as a “kringgat” in Afrikaans. 

Only the bulls have horns and a trophy is easy to identify. 

The Hunt:

Bulls are territorial and prefer open grasslands and flood plains near large stretches of water. Caliber .270
