Native to the southern regions of Africa, these antelopes are prevalent in countries like Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, and South Africa.
They prefer woodland and savannah habitats, avoiding grasslands that are too open or areas with dense forests.
They can be hunted year-round, but many prefer the dry season. This is when water sources become scarce, making them more predictable in their movements as they seek hydration.
The spot and stalk method remains the most effective, utilizing the cover of the woodland and savannah terrains they inhabit. Waiting at water sources is another strategy, especially during drier periods.
Aiming for the heart-lung area behind the front shoulder ensures a quick, humane kill. Given their robust build, a medium to high caliber rifle is recommended.
Absolutely! Many hunters and locals savor Southern Sable meat, noting its tender and flavorful qualities.
Southern Sable are vigilant and have keen senses. Additionally, their preference for woodlands can make visibility challenging at times. Their impressive horns also pose a danger if a wounded animal is approached recklessly.
