Hunting methods All hunting methods (12)

Being primarily a nocturnal animal, the best hunting time is dawn and dusk when taking to or emerging from cover to feed. The Sharpe’s Grysbuck is generally found in the vicinity of hills where it is easiest to hunt when trying to clamber away over the uneven terrain and giving away its position. It is generally hunted as a trophy of opportunity but avid collectors may even dedicate a full-on hunt to collect this member of the ‘Tiny Ten’.

Why hunt Sharpe's Grysbuck?

This animal name directly translated from the Afrikaans word Grysbuck means “Grey Buck”. This description is derived from the grey/white hairs scattered across its body covered with coarse hair which differentiates it from a Steenbuck. A devoted hunter wanting to shoot a Grysbuck will have to apply all their skills to shoot one of these crafty animals. Best mounted as a full mount with some habitat or a pedestal mount with other members of the ‘Tiny Ten’.
