Plains Game refers to antelope in sub-sarahan Africa. The term has context because of a significant amount of antelope inhabits the plains and savanna areas of Africa.
The all-encompassing plains game terminology includes African plains animals with bovine characteristics such as wildebeest. It excludes the ‘Big Five’ animals; buffalo, lion, leopard, elephant, and rhino.
