Great photography, without a doubt. Captivating.

Ya, if I ever get to Africa, they're at the top of my rather short list.

I'd love to hunt them, frankly with either a rifle or a camera. Or both.

The scimitar-horned antelope is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful animals of the African plain.

I would love to see them again. Here's mine from 6 years ago this month. Taken with a 7x57 and a 160 grain Accubond. I know it doesn't show it well but it's one of my favorite photos.

Somehow seems appropriate you used a "stalking rifle"

Just a wee bit envious of those hunters here who have stalked and taken the gemsbok...

Here is the one I took in 2013. It is on the left and my waterbuck is on the right. The hide behind them is from my Blesbuck

Just been home a couple weeks from South Africa. Gemsbuck weren't my favorite animal to hunt but I was absolutely impressed with their toughness.
