Bontebok rams and ewes do not differ in colour and they both have horns, although the ram’s horns are thicker and normally a few inches longer.
Bontebok are grazers and like open plains. They live in small herds with one breeding ram who keeps all other rams out.
Bontebok are one of the most sought-after trophies, and they make for a challenging hunt because they are a herd animal.
Suitable calibers for hunting Bontebok are .270-.300 Win Mag rifles.
