Markhor Hunting

Reserve Your Hunt
Texas Hunt Lodge will you put you on some of the world's largest Trophy Markhor. This is a very rare Exotic animal, so please make arrangements well in advance for your hunt with Texas Hunt Lodge. Year round, we offer hunts for Record Bukharan Markhor. There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Markhor in Texas, which makes it a suitable trophy year round.

We typically let our hunters choose the method of hunting Trophy Markhor that they prefer, but Hunting Markhor is very difficult, even in Texas. We will begin scouting Trophy Markhor months before your arrival, as Markhor change their patterns yearly. Some days, we'll find Markhor 10 feet up in a tree, other days, by sitting a waterhole late in the evening.

When you book your Markhor Hunt with Texas Hunt Lodge, make sure to plan on hunting multiple days as these Markhor are elusive. We have been successfully shooting Markhor with spiral horns in the 35-38" Range.

The Markhor (Capra falconeri), orginally from the western Himalayas, is an endangered and very rare Goat antelope.   Known as the National Animal of Pakistan, there are only 2000-4000 which exist in the wild.  

The Markhor is the largest of the goat antelope species with very large upright spiraling horns.  Markhor horn length reach from 36 inches up to 48.5 straight measure for the "straight horned race Markhor", while world record Markhor horns reach 51.5 inches straight and 65 inches along the outside curve for the "flare-horned Markhor".  

The double-keeled spiral curved horns make this exotic animal an extremely unique and prestigious trophy to add to any collection.

The Markhor weigh between 150 - 250 lbs at maturity.  The Male Markhor has a long dark and silver beard and are typically brown in color.  The older Markhor males whiten over time.  

Both male and female Markhor have horns. Female Markhor horns are small spiral from 6 to 14 inches.   The gestation period for the Markhor is 5 to 5.5 months and typically gives birth to 1-3 young.  

The Markhor can, and will, jump an 8 foot high fence, so most are contained in working pens for longer durations of captivity.
