Grey driker antelope in Uganda

It is also know as the common driker.
The grey driker is a member of the pygmy antelope and can survive in close proximity to man. When hunting the drikers, trophy evaluation can be difficult as most often only feeling glances will be offered. It is extremely difficult to hunt, when hunting a driker on ‘purpose’ a short gun will be an excellent choice as most shots will be taken at short range on a running target. A hunter should aim straight up the foreleg, just below the animals mid-line. Quick expanding bullets placed on the shoulder will result in a spiral hit and the little antelope should drop to the shot, making him a lot easier to find.
