    You can hunt black buck in Texas and also in Argentina.
    These animals are Schedule 1 on the Wildlife (Protection) Act and can not be hunted in India. But the trophies I have seen in my country
    I have yet to see anywhere else in the world.

    As a law abiding citizen of my country. I travelled half the world. Went to Argentina and shot one.I also shot a wild goat and a fallow
    deer.
    They have some beautiful Red Stags there. But I ran out of money. LOL.
    In the snap you will see my Shikar guide skinning the black buck with the wild goat in front.

    In Argentina, I was told that (in olden days) the Ladies would hunt Fallow deer. The Fallow is also called Dama deer.
    The kings would hunt the Red Stag.
    I was so fascinated with the beauty of the Red Stag . That finally I went to England to shoot one.

    Thats about 24 inches (antlers). A decent trophy by Indian standards.

    The one I shot in Argentina was about 19 inches .
    The interesting thing is that the antlers were broader and shorter in Argentina when compared to India.
    Probably due to a less diverse gene pool
    or
    Perhaps an adaptation to the colder climate.

    Argentinian black buck.
    Import of trophies into India is now restricted.
    So I sent this one to a cousin in England.

    Don't cry!!! You still have the Big 5 animals released ... in your country.
    Here in Europa , it is illegal to hunt Big 5 under the pretext that the animals must remain in the zoo ...:devil::biggrin2:
    Truce joke !:heh:
    You live in a marvellous country. I am in love with India despite "some problems" , I hope to return to India .. one day.
    "Namaste" as you say , isn't it ?
