  • Trophy Hunting the Blue Wildebeest in South Africa
    The game ranches of southern Africa maintain managed populations of this beest which offer wonderful opportunities for hunting blue wildebeest As both sexes carry horns and are of similar body size and color sorting out the bulls from the cows can sometimes be difficult Look for heavier muscled individuals with thicker horn bases and more droop Older bulls will usually appear darker in color with wider stripes Mature bulls can weigh as much as 600 pounds On the open plains the wildebeest is easy to locate from a distance however hunting blue wildebeest in the bushveld is quite another story In the bush he can be elusive and shy a good technique is to walk slowly into a suspected resting area into or across the wind glassing well ahead for movement This is one tough antelope hunting blue wildebeest with less than 270 caliber and a good 150 grain bullet is not recommended In open country the flat shooting 300 magnums with 200 or 220 grain bullets are an excellent choice Hunting blue wildebeest in bushveld conditions may well call for even larger calibers and heavier bullets The prominent hump on the shoulder and the mane may often lead to a body shot placed too high When hunting blue wildebeest always try to position yourself for the side on shot draw up the back edge of the front leg and place the shot about four inches a hand s width above the point of the elbow This high heart shot will take heart and lungs the animal will rock to the shot and probably go down within 50 yards If your shot placement is not quite on the mark be very cautious in a follow up This critter can be extremely dangerous when wounded Approach a downed wildebeest from the
