One of our higher prized trophies, the Damara Dik-Dik is also a little bit of a challenge to spot and hunt because of its size.

Meet the Damara dik-dik, a small antelope, genus Madoqua, that lives in the bush of Namibia and south-western Angola. Currently, it is only huntable in Namibia. The name “dik-dik” comes from the sound the female makes when alarmed. Both the male and female also make a sharp whistling sound if they sense danger. Damara dik-diks are around 12-16 inches at the shoulder; weigh between six and sixteen pounds, and can live up to ten years in the wild. The Damara dik-dik is a highly sought after member of Africa’s tiny ten antelopes.
