Sable males and females have horns, but the male's horns are longer and have more of a curve.
The mature males also tend to have a jet black cape, as opposed to the females and young males that have a browner colour cape. Shelter and water are important for Sable, they enjoy open woodlands, with some cover.
Sable are remarkably tough and resilient animals requiring very accurate shot placement. The deep profile of the forequarters coupled with the mane makes shot placement misleading.Dominant males are usually found in the rear of the herd. Sable is known to defend themselves aggressively when cornered, so when approaching a downed animal it needs to be done with caution.
Also early morning and late afternoon grazers.
