Being primarily a nocturnal animal, Cape Grysbuck are much more difficult to hunt than Sharpe’s Grysbok. A walk and stalk in their fynbos habitat along roads, near rivers and old agriculture fields may bring the desired result. In many instances, Cape Grysbuck are hunted at night by driving around shining a light. When hunting at night from the back of a pickup during the winter months (June – August), you need to ensure you are warmly dressed to keep out the cold chill.
