When hunting springbuck in South Africa, spot-and-stalk is the most common method. Springbuck hunting can be tricky in terms of spotting a suitable trophy due to the fact that both sexes carry horns. However, when hunting springbuck with Somerby Safaris, you will be set up with only the best and most experienced professional hunters on offer for a hunting safari in Africa. Our hunting areas are prime and rich with species, offering you the best opportunities for a beautiful trophy springbuck to add to your collection. Hunting springbuck in South Africa is any hunter’s dream and is a very popular animal for first time African hunts.
South Africa’s national animal, the springbuck is a strikingly marked, gazelle-like antelope. It has a white face with dark stripes from the mouth to the eyes, a reddish-brown coat that turns to a darker shade and then to white on the lower third of its body, and a white backside. It stands approximately 30 inches high at the shoulders and is characterized by a fold of skin that runs from the midback to the rump. This fold can be opened in times of excitement to display a crest of white hair. Both sexes have black, curved, lyre-shaped horns.
Hunted in the Free State, Eastern Cape and Kalahari of South Africa.
When hunting a trophy springbuck, they will be found in the open dry grasslands and Savannah. Springbuck avoid mountains, woodland and tall grass.
For hunting springbuck in Africa, go for a flat shooting rifle with a minimum of 25 caliber (243, .270, 30-06, 6.5x55, 7mm Rem mag, 308, or 300 Magnums).
Shot placement must be in the bottom third of the animal directly above the front shoulder. This will ensure a heart or lung shot. Avoid head and neck shots which are high risk.
