    Default Steenbok.

    While I hunt them fairly regularly with overseas trophy hunters, it has been several years since I hunted a steenbok myself. I shot this one, which has a slightly deformed horn, for a taxidermist that needed a replacement cape, somehow the hunter head shot his trophy. It was more of a relaxing early morning stroll with a rifle than a hunt. It was enjoyable, though I did feel a little sad as I knelt next to the little fellow just as the sun rose. Because someone is sure to ask, the meat is delicious.

    They are beautiful little antelope and easily become acclimatized to people if they don't feel threatened.
    They also have an uncanny ability to run through fences including quite small Bonnox.
    Thanks for all your great photos.

    My uncle once shot one by mistake, thinking it was an Impala.
    Bokkoors is 'n vreeslikke ding!

    They just have that unfortunate habit of spooking then stopping and turning to look at you from 30-40m. Fatal if hunted but great for photos.
