At last one day news was brought to me that he had killed a sambhur hind in the forest.
It is a long job; and the sambhur is a heavy weight when we come to turn him over.
Then suddenly the deepened blackness of a patch of shadow reveals itself as the dark hide of a sambhur stag.
The bullet struck the sambhur in the foreleg; and the beast went off limping.
They have a very soft, sweet tone, and the crown of the sambhur's horn seems suited to bring it out.
I am asked to a great drive of geese, sambhur, and syn, but cannot accept for want of time—was there ever anything more annoying!
Those haunting a jungle where sambhur, cheetul, pig and small antelopes abound take their toll of them.
But now Bechan suddenly stops Khartoum and whispers excitedly, "sambhur nur!"
Once in a beat in the forest my orderly caught a sambhur fawn which he bore, shrieking piteously, in his arms to me.
And sambhur and other deer stricken in the same manner will run a hundred yards before dropping.
