Hunting, shooting for Suni

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

Patient and slow, taking it easy every step in the direction of a targeted Suni will save you time in the long run.

Keen to predator attacks, Suni wait for the right moment before they make a hasty escape.

Suni are a small antelope species found foraging primarily for fruits and seeds through dense forest floors. Due to their nocturnal feeding habits, Suni are rarely seen and make a challenging dusk and dawn hunt for the sharpest shooter. They also typically live alone and are highly territorial.

During the daytime, they can be found in shaded, protected areas, sleeping or resting. Suni are often a target of feral dog packs, making them spooky and shy to loud noises approaching. Typical spot-and-stalk methods are necessary when approaching Suni, but little attention is needed in terms of special gear.

By bow or gun, Suni are an uncomplicated quarry to hunt for; an underappreciated hunt deep in the forests of southern Africa.
