Endemic to South Africa, blesbok are common in the Eastern Cape and Free State. Both sexes carry horns, the males’ horns being longer and thicker.
A good trophy blesbok will display whitening / yellowing of the horns with age.
Hunting blesbok requires a good pair of binoculars and a trained eye as picking the sexes apart is tricky.
Blesbok are gregarious animals with the dominant ram often hanging out on the fringe of the herd.
Younger, non-dominant rams form small bachelor herds
