Hunting blesbuck in South Africa is the perfect hunt for a first time African hunter. This antelope is aptly named and identified by the white blaze on its forehead called a “Bles” in Afrikaans. The body colour is brown with a lighter-coloured saddle on the back, and the rump an even lighter shade. The legs are brown with a white patch behind the top part of the front legs and the lower legs whitish. Both males and females carry horns, ringed almost to the tip. The neck and the top of the back of the blesbuck is brown. Lower down on the flanks and buttocks, the coloring becomes darker. The stomach, the inside of the buttocks and the area up to the base of the tail is white. Generally, blesbuck should have an average shoulder height of around 35 inches, and weigh about 130 pounds.
Blesbuck can be quite skittish and because of this there is usually a lot of stalking involved.
