ZEBRA

Hunting, shooting for Zebra

Stalking, Driven big game


An outstanding runner, darting, galloping, rocketing across dusty, sun-soaked tuffs of grassland, blending with the dizzy, moving pattern of other zebras in its small harem is a true trophy species, an African treasure on the run.

Stalking small harems, or small herds consisting of one stallion and a family of mares is best at a slow pace and with caution when on open plains or near water.

Zebra hunting is divided between two subspecies, the plains and the mountain zebras. They are very similar, with mountain zebras having an unusual neck conformation called a dewlap. Mountain zebra, as the name suggests specifies that the equus subspecies is native to mountainous terrain throughout Namibia, South Africa and southern Angola and is a slightly smaller, hardier zebra to a Plains zebra.

Stalking your first zebra is a great step in learning how to hunt Africa's big, plains game. A fun test of all hunting skills for both amateur and professional.
