Interesting Waterbuck Hunting Information:

  • Their sweat glands release a musky oil substance that waterproofs their coats.
  • This musky substance even permeates into their meat; many predators won’t eat them!
  • They are one of the only antelopes that do not mark their territory with dung and urine.  The pungent smell that their sweat glands release is more than sufficient!
  • Waterbucks are prone to heat dehydration and must live near water.
  • Contrary to what their name suggests, they are not very aquatic. Waterbucks are more often found near water than in it.

    Fantastic Hunt! Our group of four took eight animals.Two axis,two four horned sheep,one catalina,one aoudad,one scimitar oryx,and one waterbuck.Our guides were Larry and Chris,we could have not been happier with them.We hunted mostly safari style and the best thing about the guides is that they would pass on several animals until they found the right one. The meals,lodging and staff were all five star. We could have not been happier with our experience at the Ox Ranch.

    Summer Vacations To Remember This is our second visit to Ox Ranch. We made some incredible memories this week, including making an outstanding shot on a huge waterbuck! I couldn't be more excited. What a great adventure we had. We will definitely be coming back next year.

Review your hunt!
