Hunter Stabs Cape Buffalo With Cold Steel Knife

Hunter Stabs Cape Buffalo in Intense Conflict

Watch as this hunter stabs cape buffalo with a Cold Steel OSS knife.

These guys were hunting Cape Buffalo in South Africa when they had to deal with every PHs nightmare situation: a wounded buffalo. When they followed it up, the buffalo charged and pinned one of the hunters to the ground.

In a last ditch effort to save him, the other man repeatedly stabbed the buffalo with his Cold Steel OSS knife.

Whatever you do, do not try this at home! A wounded cape buffalo is serious business and is easily capable of causing death or serious injury to an unwary hunter. I do not recommend using a knife on a buffalo except as an absolute last resort, like in this video.

Warning: This video is not for the faint of heart.

It's not clear why the son decided to stab the buffalo instead of shooting it. Fortunately, his knife was up to the job and he was able to kill the buffalo. His actions saved his father, who escaped without severe injury.

No matter how you look at it, stabbing a cape buffalo with a knife takes some serious guts and this hunter really earned his man card with his actions.
