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 900 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 meat around.

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 its rump.
