Hunting Black Springbok South Africa

A popular springbok color phase and a unique trophy animal
Hunting Black Springbuck in South Africa

Black springbok are a color phase of the common springbuck and their habits are identical. Their coloring isn’t pure black and varies between shades of black.

Springbok hunting always requires a well-planned, patient stalk. Some dedicated African hunters even cover themselves from head to toe in springbok hide in order to get close.

When alarmed, springbok will let out a sharp bleat before fleeing. Unlike some African plains game antelope, they’re unlikely to pause and give you a shot opportunity. Be confident in your rifle shooting to ranges of 250 yards and use shooting sticks to steady yourself.
