Looking for a archery hunt for a daytime steenbok as my #1 animal and possibly a few others or some cull hunting. Anyone have a bowhunt with a good chance of success on a day light steenbok?
Dear JeffLooking for a archery hunt for a daytime steenbok as my #1 animal and possibly a few others or some cull hunting. Anyone have a bowhunt with a good chance of success on a day light steenbok?
I hunted Namibia in 2014 near Omaruru and it was an exceptionally good year for rains. The grass was green and about a foot high. Steenbok were everywhere! I shot an average ram on the first day and then on about day 5 we saw one that must have been half gemsbok! Of course it just stood there about 15 yards away and watched me drool!I tried hunting them in Namibia in 2016 because we were tripping over them on the same place in 2013. I put a fair amount of time into hunting them with a rifle because of how spooky they were and I didn't get one. One big thing I learned is don't hunt them in a drought hit area with little grass. They need that cover for security. They can hide behind virtually anything, but they won't hold long enough for you to get a shot without some cover they feel safe in. So, go for some place with a good rain season. Finding them will be hard, but you have a better chance at a shot because they'll hold.
