Cape buffalo cow hunt South Africa

A Cape buffalo cow hunt is by no means any different to hunting a Cape buffalo. On the contrary, with young calves in a herd both hunter and Professional Hunter need to be alert. This is a guided hunt for African dangerous game and according to law the Professional Hunter needs a dangerous game hunting license.

Commonly referred to as one of the bitches of the bushveld (we tend to call them bad ladies in public) they tend to act according to their nicknames. Known to have charged many a hunter unprovoked a hunter must have enough gun to stop a Cape buffalo charge, even if a cow is hunted. Cape buffalo cows are equally as dangerous as Cape buffalo bulls.
