Hunting, shooting, fishing for Roan antilope

Stalking, Bowhunting, Driven big game, Safari, Hunting from a Blind

With horns reaching one meter in length and the reputation of being the one of the largest Antelope species in Africa, Roan Antelopes are a hot hunt for the ardent safari hunter.

The patterns of their face disguise them in a shielded pattern, streaks of black, tan and white make it a challenge to concentrate on its' eyes.

Like zebras, Roan Antelopes live in small groups called harems, with an independent male taking the leading role. Roan Antelopes can be easily identified in grasslands and light forests throughout the mid-Africa.

Distant glassing, and careful stalking are necessary to track them down. Despite their heavy stature, weighing in on the heavy side of the Antelope family, they are quick, bolting fast after the first shot, or when alarmed. Roan Antelopes frequently require a trip to a local watering spot, a key area to weigh in on the morning or evening of your hunt.

Get downwind of a harem of this big safari game, target in on your trophy, and the hunt for Roan Antelope is all yours.
