Hard Boss Buffalo's Of Limpopo

May 31, 2018

"Cape Buffalo Hunt" taken in Limpopo South Africa earlier this year with a 375 H&H using 270 grain Barns... The Cape Buffalo are one of Africa's Big 5 and a very dangerous encounter! 

 

A front-on chest shot quickly followed up with a broadside hit right behind his left leg which brought the big buff down...

 

Here is some facts about Cape Buffalo According to Wikipedia:  The African buffalo or Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is a large African bovine.

 

Syncerus caffer caffer, the Cape buffalo, is the typical subspecies, and the largest one, found in Southern and East Africa. S. c. nanus (African forest buffalo) is the smallest subspecies, common in forest areas of Central and West Africa, while S. c. brachyceros is in West Africa and S. c. aequinoctialis is in the savannas of East Africa.

 

The adult buffalo's horns are its characteristic feature; they have fused bases, forming a continuous bone shield across the top of the head referred to as a "boss". They are widely regarded as very dangerous animals, as according to some estimates they gore and kill over 200 people every year.

 

The African buffalo is not an ancestor of domestic cattle and is only distantly related to other larger bovines. Owing to its unpredictable nature, which makes it highly dangerous to humans, the African buffalo has never been domesticated, unlike its Asian counterpart, the water buffalo. Other than humans, African Cape buffaloes have few predators aside from lions and large crocodiles, and are capable of defending themselves.

 

Being a member of the big five game, the Cape buffalo is a sought-after trophy in hunting.
