Where to hunt Günthers Dik-Dik

Hunting methods

All Dik-diks have long protruding snouts that enable these animals to control body moisture evaporation, which helps to cool the blood that feeds the brain. They are shy territorial animals that seek cover at any sign of danger and lie flat on the ground to avoid predators and hunters alike. These animals feed on leaves from which they can extract enough moisture and go a lifetime without ever having to drink water. The best is to locate a territory, then walk and stalk through the low thicket-type habitat between dawn and mid-morning; this is their preferred feeding time. In some areas, beaters with dogs may be used to flush these critters.

Why hunt Günthers Dik-Dik?

Günthers Dik-dik with their long pointed snout, big eyes and tuft of hair standing up on their forehead are truly unique looking animals. These animals are recognised as the “Pygmy Antelope” group of animals. Although by no means fearsome, they will test your patience and perseverance during this challenging hunt. They make wonderful full mounts and take up very little space in your trophy room. Their skins are used by the local tribespeople to make karosses (a blanket of sewn animal skins) and fur-lined gloves.
