Blue Wildebeest are tough animals and accurate shot placement with a good bullet is important for success. Shot placement can be misleading due to the deep profile created by the pronounced forequarters, beard and neck fringe.
Blue Wildebeest are very vigilant and a difficult animal to approach, this makes hunting them a challenge. Bachelor herds are common, and there are a number of lone males. They tend to lie down when not feeding or moving. The boss size increases with age, mature males lack the brown v on the forehead seen in females and immature males.
When shot and not downed the animal will often circle around leading the hunter back to the first spot where he was shot.
Blue Wildebeest habitat varies from open grass plains to rocky valleys, they prefer short grasses. The Blue Wildebeest we have tend to stay in rocky valleys, with quite a bit of shrub and trees. When hunting them, they are often spotted across the valley, making the stalk fairly strenuous as it often covers very rocky terrain. We try to avoid long shots due to the toughness of this animal. You will definitely feel a wonderful sense of achievement once you have dropped this beast.
