Gemsbok Hunting Details

At Texas Hunt Lodge, we offer thrilling Gemsbok hunts that provide the opportunity to harvest these stunning animals for your trophy collection. With hunts available year-round, there are no seasonal restrictions on pursuing Gemsbok in Texas, making it an ideal trophy hunt at any time of the year.

Our hunters have the freedom to choose their preferred hunting method, whether it’s Spot and Stalk, Bow Hunting, Rifle Hunting, Black Powder, Safari Style Hunting, Handgun, or hunting from a Blind. We pride ourselves on accommodating hunters of all ages, experience levels, and physical abilities, ensuring that everyone can enjoy a successful and fulfilling hunting experience.

The Gemsbok found on our Texas Hill Country Ranches are impressive specimens, with large bulls and sometimes cows available. Typically ranging from 35 to 40 inches and beyond, these Gemsbok offer formidable trophies for hunters seeking an exceptional challenge.

Many of our Gemsbok were originally imported from the Kalahari Desert region to Texas Hill Country ranches in the 1970s. Thriving in their new environment, these Gemsbok have produced some of the top trophy specimens in the world, with the area boasting the distinction of producing the top five World Record Gemsbok.

The Gemsbok (Oryx gazella), and endangered Antelope native to the Kalahari Desert Region of Southern Africa, is a desert antelope also known as the Southern Oryx.

The Male Gemsbok typically stands at 46-48 inches shoulder height, and weighs from 400 to 525 pounds. A large, very handsome antelope with a sloping back and striking black-and-white markings. It is heavily built through the chest and shoulders, giving it the appearance of having no neck. Ears are large and rounded. Tail is long and tufted. Overall coloration is a pale grayish-fawn. There is a black dorsal stripe, wide black bands on the flanks, and black markings on the throat, upper legs and rump. Black facial stripes connect with a black band encircling the muzzle. The tail is long and black. The horns (both sexes) are very long and straight and diverge rather widely at the tips, although this varies with the individual. The female is somewhat smaller and has horns that tend to be slimmer, longer and more parallel than the male’s, and are sometimes slightly curved.

The Gemsbuck was introduced in the White Sands Missile Range of southern New Mexico between 1969-1977 by the state game department. Conditions there are similar to those in southern Africa and the herd is doing well. Limited permits are available through drawing.

In Texas, the Gemsbok first appeared in 1960 on the Camp Cooley Ranch in Robertson County.  The Top 5 World Record Gemsbok all comes from the Texas Hill Country area, with 21 of the 22 Gold Medal Gemsbok from Texas as well.
