Before they could get in to finish him off, Jackson had him cornered. When they emerged into the opening the bushbuck came at them with Jackson attached as shown. Jackson was giving him hell even as they shot and killed the bushbuck. To keep him from bleeding to death, they cut the bushbuck's head off and left it attached to Jackson until they could get to the vet 3 hours away. Jackson still hunts to this day and is still "fearless". Never underestimate the "will to live" of any animal, especially a bushbuck!
I hope you do it. It would be quite an accomplishment as I am sure very few ever have. Good luck :D

The shot was at 35 degrees up at 320 yards. The bushbuck was the hardest animal to get out of all the others that I hunted. There is no doubt in my mind that my next hunt will include another buchbuck or two!
Never thought much of bushbucks because I never saw one throughout my life on the farm. I have been living in America for about 7 years now and went back to the farm in the Limpopo last June for some hunting and relaxing. Needless to say, our farm has a lot of bushbuck on it now. No river system and the farm is not inclosed on the front side(probably how they got in). To my surprise I was hunting for kudu the first morning I walked up on 4 bushbuck rams. Very beautiful animals and decided I would cross another animal off my list. He had a lot of battle scares but dropped him right in his tracks because I heard they can be dangerous. Shot him with a 308 165gr. Measured in right at 15 inches.

Where do the Bushbuck that are found in Natal fit in? I have personally seen pics of 2 trophys shot that both went over and 20" and another picked up that measured over 21" but I can't find any mention of Natal as a bushbuck hunting destination on this site?
Nobody would argue with you, the KWAZULU-NATAL Province is definitely a excellent destination to hunt bushbucks. A dreamy location!
and definitely a animal I would love to hunt .
has any member stalked a bushbuck with archery equipement .or know of anyone walk and stalking or spot and stalking one with archery
I asked my p.h on my one and only trip so far and he didn't think it could be done .
since then its ticked and ticked in my mind .
