For those of you that have not hunted Nilgai let me take a moment
to share with you what I've learned about these incredible animals.
First of all, you will not have a problem telling the steely blue
bulls from the cows and young Nilgai, although judging trophy
quality is exceptionally difficult. An average male will sport horns
of more than eight inches long, and the base circumference
will approach the length. A really great bull's horn will be
anything over 8 inches long. Like Rocky Mountain goats, they are
almost impossible to judge precisely.
You will find that seeing a bull is no problem, but judging horns,
as well as getting a shot will be. Those darned things won't stand
still long enough. I have witnessed mature whitetail bucks' standing
for a second look, but the Nilgai on the far side of them has
already vanished into the brush. To put it short and sweet they're
just plain spooky, for someone new at hunting Nilgai the hardest
lesson to learn is that they're just plain tough. A mature bull
weighs 750 to 1000 lbs plus and this bulk should not be taken
lightly. They have inch-thick, elastic like, hide that covers their
shoulders and the hide will slip over a bullet's entrance hole -
Nilgai don't leave blood trails often. On top of all that a nilgai's
first, last and in between reaction to receiving a bullet is flight.
But after a challenging and successful hunt you'll have an beautiful
mount for your wall, along with some of the best, if not the best
HISTORY In 1930 a few Nilgai were turned loose on the King Ranch &
in 1941 another small herd was released onto the Norias Division.
From this nucleus the Nilgai have prospered and spread. Basically,
their range today is the King Ranch and most contiguous ranches.
Biologically, the Nilgai is a very large member of the antelope
family that is native to India and Pakistan. It is the largest
antelope of Asia, and probably the second or third largest in the
world. It is clearly ranked behind the African sable and roam which
has dorsal projections above that make its back line slope towards
New Mexico Trophy Mule Deer
If hunting Trophy Mule Deer is a dream of yours, then this is a
hunt you'll be interested in learning more about. A Monster Muley is
one of the most challenging and rewarding animals hunted in the
Southwestern United States. Our ranch in New Mexico holds some very
large bucks, many in the 150 to 190 Boone & Crockett class.
Excellent management by the NMSU & 90% Success Rate!
