Where to hunt Gabon's Duiker

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 Gabon Duiker and wait patiently for one to arrive. The alternative method is likely to be more successful and that is have the trackers imitate the distress call of a small antelope. These inquisitive antelope are likely to come investigate and you will have an opportunity to take your shot.
