Hunting bushbuck in South Africa is a truly unique experience, with hunting often being conducted by sitting in a vantage point in the late evening or early morning and waiting for the trophy bushbuck to step out into the open for an opportune shot. Bushbuck hunting in South Africa with Somerby Safaris is an exciting experience as we have years of experience in taking our clients out on night hunts. Additionally, our concessions are rife with species and we have taken the utmost care not to overhunt any of our areas.
The Cape bushbuck is a close relative of the kudu and the nyala. The rams are very elegant in appearance, sporting dark greyish-brown fur, with white spots on the flanks and prominent white socks. Only the males have horns. The bushbuck has an average shoulder height of 33 inches and average weight of 100 pounds.
Trophy bushbuck are hunted in the Limpopo, Eastern Cape, North West and Zululand provinces of South Africa.
They can be found in the riverine forests, dense thickets and brushed areas near perennial water, being dependent of it and also sufficient shelter. They are usually solitary and primarily nocturnal, usually grazing at night or early mornings and late afternoons and resting during the day in the thickets.
Hunting bushbuck in South Africa is best with a 30-caliber rifle with suitable 180-grain bullets. Shot placement is critical and it is important to place your shot to penetrate and pass through the chest cavity. Bow hunting bushbuck in South Africa is also a popular option.
Bushbuck can be very dangerous despite their small stature, due to the sharpness of the horns, so it is critical to get in an accurate shot to avoid wounding these beautiful antelope.
