    For those of you who aren’t familiar with Nilgai they are originally from India and are one of the worlds largest antelope ( smaller than an Eland but still a large animal).
    They have a legendary reputation as being tough and they certainly are, though are quite mortal with a well placed bullet of premium quality and appropriate caliber.
    Their nick name is “blue bull” due to their coloration when mature. They can vary in color from red to almost a purple appearance.
    They are very challenging to hunt and like thick cover. Hunts are done spot and stalk commonly.
    During the rut males will literally fight to the death in some instances. They square off and go down to there front knees where they repeatedly slam into each other’s necks and vital areas in a stabbing motion with their horns.
    They are not considered dangerous game by any means but can be very violent if cornered or wounded. (Kinda like a sable).
    Another unique feature is the “beard” they get under the throat patch similar to a turkey.

    This would be another one of those hunts for the hunt only for me. These things need to be shoulder mounted! That said, they take up lots of space in order to have the beard and shoulder mounted properly. They deserve a fine shoulder mount! JMO

    Hey, Erik.............great offer. They look like a powerful animal. I have never actually seen a live one. Is that bull in the foto a big trophy? Their horns are not easy for a novice to judge.........thanks for posting.....FWB

    Hey Bill, yes that’s a hoss in the photo. Big bulls will have 8-10” horns. They are truly breathtaking in person. If you wanted to do this I would have your Aoudad done when you come and you could pick them up then.

    Took mine on the King Ranch many years ago when it JUST opened for commercial hunting. I was actually one of the very first to book a hunt there. This is an awesome animal to hunt. Make your first shot count boys and girls.

    I don't think that I did. I'll see if I can correct that.
