I want to share some blackbucks hunt here in my Country with you buddyes. Somedody brought this very nice antelopes from India about 1920 to Argentina.....same happened with axis deer and from Europe with Red Deer, Fallow and European boar.
All this game animals have been raising since almost 100 years in our Country and they do really well.
We can find them in many Provinces and free range......of course many farms got them into their high fences as well.

Blackbuck is a 45/50 Kilos animal in the males and his spiral trophie invite you to try to get the chance to get one.

Measuring their horns in straight way we can say that.....

40 centimeters is a nice representative........
45 centimeters is a good one
50 centimeters is a very good
53 centimeters is exellent
55 centimeters.......Saint Hubertus kiss you......

More than 55 cm you are the chosen one........!!!!!!

Some pictures...........

A nice 49.5 cm in my youth

Blackbuck´s likes to be in a open field in herds, so you can expect for a long range shooting after try to do the beast aproach as is posible.

Calibers with flat trayectory such a .243, 270 or any madium caliber works perfect for this tropies.
They dont jump over the fences, they have the habit to cross them below.

It a pleasure to share this with you boys.............see you......!!!!!!

They sound great! I absolutely loved eating Mountain Reedbuck... Until I had Springbuck. Sounds like these critters are similar, open spaces and a challenge to get close to. My PH in RSA told me that Springbuck will humble you when it comes to shooting them.. He was right.

I really like the one in the 4th picture down. That photo is well done, no blood, horns tilted to the best advantage.. They look massive, thick.

And that Argentine grass looks a lot friendlier than the prickly stuff in Africa. The most dangerous thing I did in Africa was pose for pictures... And sit on the damned cactus that was hiding inside the thorny little bushes pretending to be grass! Ha Ha.. not

I thought blackbucks were native to Texas!!! ;)

All kidding aside, those are really interesting as the horns seem to look to have more mass than most I've seen from Texas, although I may be wrong.

I spent some time working in Chile years ago, one of my greatest regrets was not taking the time to slip over to Argentina while I was there. Even the local Chileans kept telling me that Argentina was the best place in South America.

I think I may have to rectify that mistake and take a trip down hunting.

All these pictures you keep posting make me want to go even more.

Thanks Rocket,

-John

How do prices compare in TX and Argentina?

How much for a full bag deal in Argentina? How much time is necessary?

Bob, I´m not sure about the prices, my boss and MG office take care of that but almost sure that a six hunting day for a red deer in the rut all inclusive and one deer is u$ 4500 and blackbuck should be $1000 and $1500 for a axis deer more or less......!!!!!

Gillette,

How's it going man?

If you decide to hunt BlackBuck in Texas let me know. I have a friend who can put you on some dandy bucks. If you like them dark & black like I do, it's best to hunt them in the winter around January or February when they are darkest. Of course, I'd love to go to Argentina for that experience as well.

Hey Rocket, share some pics of those Axis with us please. I hunted them a lot this past spring & summer in Texas. They are fun, challenging and very beautiful animals.

Midle of march rut for red stag is starting, no problem with blackbuck because they dont drop the horns and axis deer.......80 percent of them are with their horn´s ready since February.......for those 3 I would say March 20 to be presice Bob......!!!!!

Thank you.....!!!!!
