With just two and a half days left on this safari, I would attempt to do what no bow-hunter with Sediba Nkwe Hunting Safaris had ever done--take an elusive bushbuck via spot-and-stalk tactics.
The arrow smacked the bushbuck hard, but because of the thickness of the bush I couldn't see exactly where it hit.
, right, is a common species living in sub-Saharan Africa.
He killed a wildebeest at 42 yards, a blesbok at 53 yards, impala at 25 yards, a reedbuck at 30 yards, and a bushbuck at 49 yards.
On the short drive to the lodge, we saw Cape buffalo, bushbuck, and impala.
Although shy and reclusive, bushbucks are well suited to stalking in their preferred habitat.
Substantial overlap exists between Chobe and Limpopo bushbucks, for example, and bushbucks killed in the same location are entered in both categories in the SCI record book.
