All that has been said regarding hunting the common Blesbok and the Bontebok, can be applied when hunting the White Blesbok. A mutation in color, the White Blesbok is not an albino, but rather merely a variation in color. Find the “White” mixed in with the herd of Common Blesbok. He exhibits the same territorial tendencies; challenging displays, threatening behavior, and marking of the grass with his preorbital glands.
He prefers to graze on short grass, especially that which is newly sprouted from burnt out areas. All blesbok feed during the cooler morning and evening periods, tending to rest during the heat of the day. Hunting White Blesbok is best accomplished during the afore-mentioned period; set up on approaches to feeding areas or water. You can use your favorite Deer rifle when hunting the White Blesbok … quality expanding softpoint bullets suitable for your caliber of choice will be most effective.
The high heart/lung shot will be the “ticket” here; take aim directly up the foreleg about one third and squeeze. Never shoot above the half way point or you may be in for a long day. Hunting White Blesbok can net you a very unique trophy to hang next to the Common variety. His white color and straw colored horns set him apart from his common brothers.
