So as I think through this and trying to determine fully-loaded price for a Nilgai . . . it sounds like a $7k, 3 day event. Admittedly, your operation is one of the finest in TX and I know you typically get what you pay for. That said, doesn't that seem materially more expensive than your competitors / the going rate? I mean this, sincerely, as a question (NOT an indictment). Just trying to get my bearings as I consider the pricing bookends of doing this. Many thanks.

Sir I sincerely apologize for not responding sooner, it was not intentional I just missed the notification.
to answer your question.
Nilgai packages start at $5600 so I guess your adding in airfare and all other travel expenses that you would have no matter where you are going. Adding an extra day does cost an extra day fee but the hunt still wouldn’t be 7k. We have had a daily rate increase to $500/day BUT I’m still running the Nilgai packages at $5600 baring any unforeseen circumstances.
Nilgai are all over south Texas. We in the panhandle do not have self sustaining herds as our winters will absolutely 100% kill them. They are extremely cold susceptible and no one has ever successfully climatized them to live in our winter conditions. Unlike most of Texas we frequently see temperatures below zero for a week or so every February and they just cannot handle that. This means that I have to bring them in annually after the last freeze. I have a policy on released animals that they cannot be hunted within 30 days of release. It is unfair to the animal to not allow it to get settled in and have time to find all of the places to hide from and escape from hunters.
Anyway, much like 95% of all outfitters that offer Nilgai hunts I have to buy the animal at the same price everyone else does, then I have to ship them all the way across the state which typically runs 1000$ Additionally they are on my feed bill (we do supplemental feed) for 5 months.
It is something we offer but I do realize that it is significantly higher in some circumstances than many places across the state. I can tell you that I am by no means the most expensive on them.

BTW @AES you in no way offended me. I run a very transparent operation and do not hide anything. The only way one will ever know is to ask! You are more than welcome to ask me anything anytime whether it be in open forum or pm.

Aoudad! I saw 2 monsters there in January! Never could get a shot on them.
100%!!!!! If we see one, we will definitely try to put it down. Fallow is also high on her list. However, they won't have horns & be all palmed out into the Fall.

November is a really great time out there..... The heat is over & it is not brutally cold yet. Very pleasant & beautiful sunrise/sunsets. Plus comfortable evenings by the fire is a bonus!

My thoughts exactly. I love an excuse to get away from the desert heat. My house in November is still quite warm.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
