Exciting bow hunting and archery news from Bushmen Safaris in South Africa
At first glance, hunting the Black Wildebeest may seem rather easy, as on the open plain where he is often found, he will be relatively easy to locate. However, closing the distance on him may be an entirely different matter; his excellent senses and herd instinct make hunting Black Wildebeest quite a challenge. This member of the antelope family is an ox-like animal with unusual horns, a beard, and hair on his nose. He is dark brown in color with a horse-like tail, which is almost pure white. Hence, he is sometimes called the white-tailed gnu. The name wildebeest was given it by early Dutch settlers in South Africa who regarded it as a wild ox. "Gnu" is a Hottentot word that describes its characteristic bellowing snort. These strange looking \“beests\” occur naturally only in South Africa. With both sexes carrying horns, it sometimes takes much patience to distinguish the bulls from the cows.

One of the animals that brings scores and scores of hunters to South Africa is the Eland, the world's largest and slowest antelope. The Eland also has the endurance to maintain a trot indefinitely and can jump an 8-foot fence from a standstill. Both males and females have horns that spiral tightly, though female horns tend to be longer and thinner. The Eland is the animal most often depicted in the early rock art of East Africa. Even today, it still holds an important place in the mythology of some southern African tribes.
Appreciation and understanding of various weapon systems are a part of Marine culture. Typically, the M16 or the M240 are the first to come to mind. However, there is a more traditional weapon system being utilized by Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton personnel, and it has fostered a culture of its own.
