The Southern Reedbuck is the largest of the reedbuck species. It has a greyish coat with a white underbelly, a distinctive white patch around its rump, and slightly curved horns that are ridged almost to the tips.
They are native to the southern regions of Africa, with countries like South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe offering ample opportunities for hunters.
As their name suggests, Southern Reedbucks typically inhabit wet or marshy areas, such as floodplains, swamps, and areas near rivers and lakes, where they can feed on the grasses.
While they can be hunted year-round in many regions, the dry season often proves to be more advantageous because reedbucks are more likely to concentrate around water sources.
The spot and stalk technique is popular due to the open environments they inhabit. Still hunting or setting up near water sources in the early morning or late afternoon can also be effective.
Aiming for the vital organs, located behind the shoulder, is the most humane shot placement. Due to their size, a medium-caliber rifle is often recommended.
Yes, the meat is tender and palatable, often compared to antelope meat in terms of flavor and texture.
Their keen senses, particularly their hearing and eyesight, combined with their propensity to hide in tall grasses or reeds, can make them a challenging quarry.
Trophy quality is usually determined by the length, symmetry, and thickness of the horns. An older, mature male with impressive horn growth is considered a desirable trophy.
