BLACKBUCK IN THE FLAT LANDS

Native to the India, this species was introduced into our country in 1940 in the south of the Province of Santa Fe, with merely ornamental purposes; later on it was taken to the provinces of Buenos Aires, Entre Ríos and La Pampa, where they have reproduced and formed numerous herds. The males have black and white fur when they are adults, they present two straight horns disposed as a V which reach up to 60 cms. The females, of smaller size, are light brown and white, the same as the young males and the baby antelopes. This variety of antelope is a ruminant species which is found in the vast Pampean plains with good pasture. Since one of its abilities is the speed when galloping, they avoid the dense vegetation. Because they live in agricultural regions, it is quite usual to find herds inside the cultivated fields, under the careful watching of the adult females that control the surroundings, and which with the slightest sign of alarm start to move and jump vertically until all the herd starts to escape quickly. This animal species has a pregnancy period of 6 months, after which the female generally gives birth to just one antelope, and the period of sexual activity usually starts at the end of the summer. The black antelope hunting is done in vast plains during the whole day, and the difficulty is not finding the herd, which is generally easily identified, but approaching the animal so as to shoot it, because since they are found in quite open places, it is very unlikely that they allow the presence of the hunter beyond the distance they themselves think is safe, before they quickly retreat. For this reason, it is usually necessary to approach the animals very slowly and even drag a long distance so as to be able to shoot the selected prey.
Shooting distance average: 200 mts. Adequate calibers: .243 Winchester, .308 Winchester, .270 Winchester
