If your place is small then i would be looking for a crossing in a fence.
They tend to use one crossing nearly every time. but this is some times a very slow way to hunt
and can take a while.
My favorite way is to find a high place that overlooks a large plain and set up an ambush.
Approach it from cover and well before daylight.
Be prepaired to shoot a long way (800+ yards) because there eye sight is so good. Make sure
that you lay prone and camouflage your silhouette and have a total back drop. also I recomend you wear a face net just like you were bow hunting.
These things have tremendous eye sight and can pick you out even with camo.
This is a snipers dream hunt if they are hunted because they can see better than anything
I have ever hunted .
I would recomend at least a 300 RUM or even better a 338. they are not hard to kill just hard
to put down. The smallest cartrige I have ever used was a 7mm Rem Mag at 420 yards and
the big bull ran over 500 yards before dropping the 416 did not have that problem but range
was limited to 400 yards and I had to pass on a great bull at over 700 yards, so I now like
Good luck and good hunting.
