Not busting your chops, but they are actually Waterbuck COWS and a male is a Waterbuck Bull.

Tonight was a good night. I saw 7 gemsbok 2 water buck an axis. Then had a nice spike come out and blew my opportunity while trying to position myself for a shot. He me moving and high tailed it out of there. Then I had 2 nice bucks that couldnít get any pictures of due to it being so dark. With the last 5 minutes of light I had 4 pigs come out. Decided to shoot one and it dropped the other 3 scattered but then stopped. I racked another round put the cross hairs right behind his ear and was squeezing a round off when it took off. Then few minutes later they came back. Picked one out and squished off a round and it went running in the brush. My dad had shot a 4 point few minutes before that and couldnít find blood so I loaded my stuff up in the truck went to the pig that dropped then started to look for the other pig and it started to rain. Figured it was more important to find the deer then the pig so decided to just leave it. (Biologist said we could just shoot and leave the pigs if we wanted) picked up my papa then headed to get my dad. We looked for blood for an hour and never saw any sign of blood or hair anywhere so figured it was a clean miss. Iíll let him tell a more detailed story about it.

Hereís the one pig I found

All in all was an awesome hunt got to meet some really nice people and see lots of wildlife including several really nice bucks.

If I remember correctly they only have the big game award hunts for exotic but I could be wrong.

They have a guided gemsbock draw hunt I know because I put in for it. I didn't pay attention to the other hunts offered. Congrats on the pig 79F250!

Which pasture did y'all draw?

We've hunted on top of the mountain and in the west pasture back when they had doe and spike hunts. Beautiful place with great housing for the hunters.
