We hunt Nilgai on a 3000 acre ranch in the Texas Hill Country, and typically let our hunters choose the method of hunting Trophy Nilgai that they prefer. Nilgai Hunters will see upwards of 200 Nilgai in a day and can choose the Spot and Stalk method, Bow Hunting, Rifle Hunting, Black Powder, Safari Style Hunting, Handgun, as well as hunting from a UTV Vehicle. 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 Trophy Nilgai Antelope that we hunt are Blue Bulls and typically have horn length in the 9-11 inch range and weigh approximately 550-700 lbs. Our Nilgai are much healthier and bigger than those you will find in South Texas.
