When Hunting Ostriches, You Have to Catch the Flock First

Hunting ostriches this way is indeed chasing fast food.

Hitting a running ostrich with a rifle from a moving vehicle is quite a feat.

Watch as this hunter gets the perfect head shot on this super-sized bird as he tails the flock in a vehicle perfect for hunting ostriches.

An ostrich is known for its speed, as shown in this video in particular. They also have way more meat than your Thanksgiving Day turkey. How do you get this fast-moving bird, anyway?

Well, these hunters use mechanical advantage to catch up to this fast moving pair of drum sticks. What makes this video is the epic head shot this hunter made using a rifle from a moving vehicle on a running bird.

The machinery and skill required to down an ostrich are both reasons why this type of hunting isn’t for the faint of heart or the unexperienced hunter. Precision and balance are key in making this kill shot.
