Waterbuck Hunting

Reserve Your Hunt
Texas Hunt Lodge allows the opportunity to hunt and harvest the Trophy Waterbuck year round.  Our Trophy Waterbuck are the Common (not Defasa) Waterbuck. There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Waterbuck in Texas, which makes it a suitable trophy year round.

We typically let our hunters choose the method of hunting Trophy Waterbuck that they prefer. Hunters of Trophy Waterbuck 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 Trophy Waterbuck we hunt in the Texas Hill Country Area are located on a 1000 plus acre ranch...we recommend that you book your hunt at least 1-2 months in advance due to the rarity of these animals. The typical Waterbuck that we hunt have horns in the 26-28 inch range.

Waterbuck Trophy Fees

  • Waterbuck Trophy: $6,900

Trophy Fee is in addition to $250 per day which covers All-Inclusive Hunt Package.

Non-hunting guests may accompany the hunter for an additional $100 per day which covers lodging, meals and amenities as well.

The Common Waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus ellipsiprymnus), native to Africa, can be hunted year round in Texas.  The Waterbuck is a large, shaggy, gray and brown antelope with a white ring around it's rump. 

The Common Waterbuck males have heavy ringed horns shaped like a crescent.  The Waterbuck's horns typically range 20 inches long and upwards of 28-30 inches in giant trophy Waterbuck.  

The Waterbuck will drink at least twice daily, in the morning and late afternoon...in fact, they drink more than a West Texas Cow does in a day.

 Rutting Waterbuck males are very aggressive...they may even fight males of other species and kill them.  They will easily hybridize with Defassa Waterbuck and possibly even with Lechwe.
