Bongo Hunt

Reserve Your Hunt
Texas Hunt Lodge allows the opportunity to hunt and harvest the extremely rare Bongo you'll want to hang on your wall. This animal is extremely rare and we have access to only a few at a time. Year round, we offer hunts for awesome Trophy Bongo. There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Bongo in Texas, which makes it a suitable trophy year round.

We typically let our hunters choose the method of hunting Trophy Bongo that they prefer. Hunters of Trophy Bongo can choose the Spot and Stalk method, Bow Hunting, Rifle Hunting, Black Powder, Safari Style Hunting, Handgun, as well as hunting from a Blind. We can accommodate hunters of any age and experience level, as well as hunters which have physical disabilities or may be confined to a wheelchair.

The Bongo Antelope that we offer on our Texas Hill Country Ranches are raised locally on private ranches, though this animal is one of the top game trophies of Africa and the United States. The Top 25 Record Bongo taken on this side of the Atlantic Ocean have all come from the Texas Hill Country Area. The Bongo Antelope we hunt will average 30 inches with some scoring over 36 inches in length.

The Bongo (Tragelaphus euryceros), is the largest forest African antelope.  Native to the equatorial forest in Africa, where it occurs discontinuously from Sierra Leone eastward to Kenya. Shy, wary. elusive and mostly nocturnal, a bongo in its native habitat is one of the top game trophies of Africa, and of the world. Five subspecies are listed in Africa, but are not separated here.

The Bongo weighs from 450 to 550 pounds, and stands 47-55 inches at the shoulder.  It has a large body with a hunched back, stout legs, very large ears and a long tufted tail. Coat is smooth and short, bright chestnut red in color, with 10-14 vertical white stripes to a side. There is a black and white dorsal crest of stiff hairs, a white facial chevron, white marks on the cheeks, and a white crescent on the breast. Underparts are black, the legs are black with white markings, and the tail has a black tip. Both sexes grow large, smooth horns, with two slight keels, forming an open spiral of about 1-1/2 turns.

Females are similar to males, but smaller, with shorter, narrower, straighter horns.
