Nilgai Antelope were introduced to South Texas in the 1920’s.
The Nilgai Bull stands at 3.5 to 5 ft tall at the Shoulder and is not an easy animal to take down.  Rifle Calibers for hunting Nilgai range from .270 WSM up to .338 typically.  In most cases, you will not find an exit wound on a downed Nilgai.

When hunting Nilgai, you will typically find Nilgai Bulls running in herds together, Cows and calves by themselves, except during Rut.
The Nilgai (Boselaphus Tragocamelus), an Antelope native to India that is hunted for trophies, can now be hunted in Texas with Texas Hunt Lodge. The Nilgai Antelope is a large antelope (male’s average 500 lbs) with short, sharp horns.  The horns are usually found in males only and average in 6-8 inches in length.

 The Nilgai diet consists of mostly grass, and they flourish in the Texas Hill Country environment, as they prefer the dry weather to wet.  The Nilgai can be combative, and seek to injure other Nigai, and kill Eland Bulls, during fights.  They tend to breed during the winter, December to March, and the Birth Season is typically August to November as Gestation is 8 1/4 months.

 The Nigai antelope male reach sexual maturity at age 2 1/2 and the female at 18 months.
