Tsessebe (Damaliscus lunatus)
In the same genus as Blesbok, the Tsessebe are sometimes confused with the Red Hartebeest. A plains dwelling grazer mostly active during the early mornings. Both sexes have horns, although the female’s are more slender. Tsessebe congregates with Zebra. To deter predators, they stand with front legs on termitaria to create the impression that they are very big. Although they seem bulky, they can reach incredibly fast speeds.
Hunt the Tsessebe during the early mornings and late afternoons. Only broadside and quartering away shots are advised. Aim a third from the bottom of the body, in line with the front leg. Thin-skinned, they are not tough at all.
