Trophy hunting for Cape Grysbok is for the hunter who wants to chase a unique and rare wild species.

Only the males carry upright small horns, and males are usually spotted being alone. It is only during the mating season they are seen in pairs.

These small animals are only active during the night. Both males and females can be extremely territorial. They defend their territory against all intruders. Cape Grysbok feeds exclusively on small leaves from trees and shrubs.

Cape Grysbok should not be confused with Sharpe’s Grysbok who live in the northern region of South Africa. These two different Grysboks are easily confused as the physical differences are quite small.

Many smaller riffle calibers can effectively be used in the hunt for this little wild species. Larger calibers can also be used, if only these are full-jacketed.

Hunting for Cape Grysbok will take place at night along the coast.
