When to hunt Blesbuck?
Opportunities to hunt Blesbuck exist year round, although hunting is closed in Namibia in December and January, and these months may be too hot for hunting in the northern areas of South Africa. The best time for trophy hunting for Blesbuck is the rut, when bigger dominant rams are easier to identify. The rut usually occurs from March to May but they are easily huntable year round.

Spot-and-stalk is the preferred method of Blesbuck hunting, although it’s an open question whether spotting a suitable male or stalking in range is harder. Like with many other African antelopes, Blesbuck herds are divided into family (containing mostly ewes and lambs) and bachelor. Old males usually hang out alone, except during the rut, when they protect their territory and try to assemble a herd of females around them for breeding. Rams and ewes are similar in appearance, and both carry horns. A ram is usually bigger, and its horns are longer, but it often takes a trained eye to see the different. Blesbuck prefer highveld plains and open grasslands, where approaching them can be quite a challenge . These antelopes are grazers and do not venture far from sources of water, so hunting from a blind over a waterhole is a viable alternative to spot-and-stalk.
Why hunt Blesbuck?
Blesbuck is rarely the first antelope that Europeans and North Americans think about, overshadowed by other species such as Kudu, Impala and Eland. But South African and Namibian hunters hold Blesbuck in high esteem - it’s one of the three most popular antelopes to hunt for biltong and skins. With trophy and sport hunters, according to one survey, it’s the fifth most popular trophy in South Africa. This antelope is as graceful as it is widespread. The striking contrast between dark skin and white ‘blaze’ on the muzzle will make for an impressive trophy mount that will serve as a symbol and a memory of an African hunting adventure.
