Where to hunt Black-Fronted Duiker

Duikers are found throughout sub-Saharan Africa and split into two main groups, the forest duikers and those that inhabit the savannas. Black-fronted Duikers are a forest duiker species that prefers poorly drained marshy dense rainforests of the Congo Basin and montane areas in Kenya where they may not be hunted. Numerous Outfitter listings for Cameroon can be found on BookYourHunt.

Hunting methods

Two successful hunting methods can be used if a trophy is not found during a walk and stalk. The first method is to conceal yourself in a likely place that may be visited by a Black-fronted Duiker and wait patiently for one to arrive. The alternative method is likely to be more successful and that is to have the trackers imitate the distress call of a small antelope. These inquisitive antelope are likely to come to investigate and you will have an opportunity to take your shot.
