    Bowhunting Soemmerring Gazelle in Ethiopia



    I hunted with Ethiopian Rift Valley Safaris and PH Jason Roussos. This was my fifth bowhunt in Ethiopia. After bowhunting my Abyssinian Bohor Reedbuck in the Bale mountains and the Damaro hunting area we drove back to Addis to resupply then headed out for the day long drive to the Danakil desert for the Soemmerring gazelle. We drove far into the hunting area and pitched camp in a dry riverbed. The next morning we walked out of camp and immediately started spotting gazelle in the rolling hills of the Danakil. We were stalking a good ram when we saw this one feeding on green bushes in a dry wash. We followed him for over a kilometer trying to close the gap and eventually I shot him at extreme long range. We followed him up and I put a finishing shot at 50 yards- a good old ram of 14 1/2 inches. It was an amazing trip and I look forward to my next hunt with Jason. Both these species were the first taken by a modern bowhunter.
