Hunting jackal in Africa is no easy feat. Firstly, they are mostly nocturnal and secondly, they are extremely quick and elusive. A night hunt using spotlights and predator calls are the most common method of jackal hunting in South Africa. Somerby Safaris is renowned for our excellent night hunting. Jackal hunting can take place throughout South Africa and due to our diverse areas and our highly experienced professional hunters, you will not be disappointed.
The erect and pointed ears of the black backed jackal are a prominent feature. The fur consists of long, dark hair on top of the neck and back. Their flanks and face are beige-buff, sometimes rusty-reddish, and they have a black tipped tail. They have an average shoulder height of approximately 14 inches and an average weight of 18 pounds. They are considered vermin and most farmers appreciate hunters shooting them.
throughout South Africa.
Jackal adapt to many different habitats ranging from desert to sub-tropical areas, and highveldt, but excluding tropical rain forests. Open grass plains have a particular attraction.
The jackal, a medium-sized carnivore with doglike features and a bushy tail, is widely distributed in Africa. The three species of jackal in Africa are the golden or common jackal, the side striped jackal and the black-backed or silver-backed jackal. Eerie, howling noise made at night time.
For hunting jackal in Africa at night, the best caliber is something in the small .22-.25 caliber range. Due to the speed of these critters, whatever you have on hand may have to do.
A side-on broadside or quartering-away shot is the best shot to take with jackal hunting.
