  • Roan Antelope
    injury rarely results and the bout terminates when one or the other yields However these are very powerful and dangerous animals and some contests can occasionally end in a fatality if neither bull chooses to yield When hunting Roan Antelope with Witkop Safaris the hunter can be subjected to serious injury if he gets to close to the backward sweep of the Roan s powerful horns Predominantly grazers the Roan prefers the savannah with wide open grassy areas where they tend to scatter and feed When grass becomes scarce they revert readily to browsing a habit not shared by their cousin the Sable and thus they seem to stay in better shape than the Sable during hard times Normally water dependent unlike his brother the Gemsbok he will most likely be found near a water source When hunting the Roan Antelope with Witkop Safaris don t be under gunned The Roan is a heavy tough aggressive and therefore potentially dangerous quarry Look for his spoor around the water holes and catch him at first light while he is feeding in the open The herd bulls can be quite cocky and not all that hard to approach be very cautious and at the ready he may be just so bold as to take you on in a charge Absolute legal minimum would be the 270 Win with the 30 calibers and heavy for caliber bullets a much better choice Your best bet for hunting Roan Antelope with Witkop Safaris is a good 338 magnum the 9 3mm or the trusty 375 H H The high heart lung shot will do nicely for the side on presentation straight up the front leg one third into the body and squeeze Aim through the center of the neck where it joins the body if

  • Suni
    and afternoons avoiding the mid day sun When hunting Suni their habit of wagging their tails vigorously will often give them away in the bush Mostly browsers they like the tender shoots of trees mushrooms fallen fruit weed and occasionally grass and field crops Not dependent on water they get all they need from their diet Hunting Suni is best along game trails which they habitually travel This habit makes them fairly easy to trap and more are taken in this way than fall victim to predation When hunting Suni one can take advantage of his very wary nature which causes him to freeze for quite a long period of time before he finally takes flight If hunting Suni is the mission your best choice of weapon will be the shotgun Like many of the mini antelope you will get only short fleeting glimpses of this little guy as he spooks and heads for the thick underbrush As for an aim point given time it would be the same as that for any of the other mini lopes but you will probably only have time to take the shot at whatever part of his body he presents Shoot straight and without hesitation good luck WAG Prev Next Testimonials Jess Before you head out on your Serbian adventure Merna and I wanted to provide you some feedback regarding our time at Witkop As you know Merna and I fly all over the world and sleep in a lot of different beds Your bedding mattress and sheets were top notch and did not go unnoticed as to their comfort and quality we are guessing Cynthia may have had some influence please fwd our compliments Thank you for putting us up in a couples oriented room With one large bed Upon our arrival

    ewe s horns tend to be a bit shorter Look for the outside edges of the ears to be fringed with black hair These little guys tend to be solitary but may on occasion form loose associations Shy and secretive they are extremely hard to spot and therefore seldom seen Like most of the duiker clan the red prefers dense forest brushy mountain slopes and even the thick costal bush When encountered and alerted they will almost surely bound away giving only a fleeting glimpse of red The Red Duiker is almost an exclusive browser but he will partake of grass on occasion especially when it newly sprouts out of burned out areas They are known to eat fallen fruit of the forest fig which has been knocked down by the birds and primates Dependent on water the Red Duiker must drink daily Hunting Red Duiker can be a real challenge because of his size and shyness not to mention his preferred habitat only fleeting glimpses will be afforded to the hunter While any rifle would certainly be adequate a shotgun would probably be the better weapon of choice Shoot straight and fast Good Luck WAG Prev Next Testimonials Jess Before you head out on your Serbian adventure Merna and I wanted to provide you some feedback regarding our time at Witkop As you know Merna and I fly all over the world and sleep in a lot of different beds Your bedding mattress and sheets were top notch and did not go unnoticed as to their comfort and quality we are guessing Cynthia may have had some influence please fwd our compliments Thank you for putting us up in a couples oriented room With one large bed Upon our arrival at our hotel n Cape Town we got a
