Klipspringer females do not have horns. They are usually found in rocky areas, mountains with rocks bordering ravines, ridges with rocks and juts. Klipspringer usually occur in pairs. They are very sure footed rock climbers. If they are disturbed while grazing on surrounding flats they take to the rocks immediatley for cover. Often when they take flight, they will stop on a rock, to have a scout around, so one must be ready for this as it offers a good opportunity to take a shot.
Klipspringer often require quick, accurate and off hand shooting as they are seldom still for long periods.
