Hunting advice:

It is most often hunted by stalking on land or at drinking places. Aim at the chest or the base of the neck to break the spine. The skin around the chest is very thick and tough. The heart is situated way to the front.


We recommend a caliber of at least 375 HH Magnum with a solid bullet.


Horns, skin, hooves. A chest mount is very beautiful. We do not recommend treatment by taxidermists in Africa.
