Being less secretive than most forest Duikers, this species may be hunted around forest margins and opening on the forest floor. A slow walk and stalk along a forest footpath or track normally yields up an opportunity for a shot. Another favourite habitat type is the dense bush or forest growing along rivers and around water bodies where many fruit bearing, especially Wild Fig trees are found. Fallen flowers and fruit knocked down by Monkeys and Baboons cannot be resisted by these Duiker. Red Duiker also respond well to antelope distress calls.
