Stalking, Bowhunting, Driven big game, Trapping
Vivacious, alert and fierce yet ordinarily small and unobtrusive, wild dogs including fox, hyena, coyote, wolf, raccoon dog and jackal are a challenging game of choice.
Hyena by bow or rifle is a dynamic hunt across large, populous plains; a treasured African experience. Fox hunting is altogether different. Famously on horseback, fox hunting is a hound and hunter's perfect game of hide-and-seek through field and forest.
When offered, nighttime hunting adds an exciting twist to hunting for the often very nocturnal animals like the hyena and coyote. What reveals itself in the night is always unpredictable, sudden and intense.
Calling coyote, wolves, raccoon dogs, hyena and jackal is effective alongside baiting techniques to get these animals moving and interested.
Acute hearing senses are almost as powerful as their immensely strong sense of scent, so being stealthy and upwind lay the foundations to a successful wild dog hunt.
