Hunting methods All hunting methods (15)

Spot and stalk is usually the best way to hunt a Tsessebe. Generally found in relatively open areas and near water in the late afternoon. Quiet often spotted from the truck which can be parked away out of sight and then a planned approach can be made to stalk these animals. If you are bowhunting, your best bet is to hunt from a blind overlooking water. The use of mineral blocks and salt licks will also attract the animals to such a site.

Why hunt Tsessebe?

Tsessebe belong to the Wildebeest and Hartebeest families which are normally hunted by collectors of these bigger sized species. Although not a highly sought after trophy it is popular with collectors. The most common way to mount a Tsessebe is a shoulder mount which makes it very difficult to identify from other closely related species, especially Topi. Therefore, you may be tempted to skull mount your trophy and rather display the skin which make for a rather beautiful rug.
