Copper Springbok Hunting in South Africa

Copper springbok are a color phase of the common springbok and are identical to them in all other aspects. Their skin color is dark copper, whereas a common springbok has white.

Springbok hunting in South Africa is entrenched in African hunting folklore. Past generations of hunters have told stories of thousands upon thousands of “trekbokke” (i.e. wandering herds), taking residence in an area for a month or more and then moving on.

The settlers would make hunting parties and along with horses, skinners and ox-wagons, hunting springbok would be a month-long affair.
