I can't answer any of your questions, but I would sure like to head to south Texas to hunt for one, I have several friends that have harvested some nice bulls with archery gear at watering holes....From what they have told me they are really reclusive and hard to hunt. Your a lucky feller....

Good luck in your adventure..

Nilgai are both browsers and grazers, and like mesquite and oaks as well. They tend to stay out of heavy wooded areas. Bulls stay to theirselves though there are 15-20 cows in a herd. Nilgai can breed anytime of years, but normally aound December. You certainly are lucky, you have to keep us posted on your hunt.... Get some pics for us!

1st of all ty very much. I will get to hunt Dec 3 to Dec 10. If they are in rut at this time what sounds do they make? There is lots salt watter down there so a fresh watering spot should be real good.

Rev do you know much about the park?

Nilgai are big tough animals. They are about the size of an elk. I would not worry about their mating season etc, becuase youll be doin a spot and stalk hunt on them.

I am not going on any kind of payed hunt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would not and will not ever. I was not looking for a hunt but some imfoo on the animal itself.I will be hunting with my dad [im allso well over 30] I do not know why all the stuff came in here about buying a hunt.I would go kill a bision here in Montana for way way less money befor I ever went to TX for some drive around shoot out of the truck hunt like that.Sorryjust shaking my headat the moment.Well I thought there was a place to put things like that.Isnt this for questions???????????????If they would like to give my some imfoo on how the animal acts or any thing that may help me on a hunt that is fine.But to just try to sell hunts when ask a question is roung.

Maby I am just stooting off at the mouth but did any where in here ask for a place to hunt or an outfitters name.

Texhookem
The reasion why I ask about when they rut so I cant hunt them in a difrant way than if an animal is not in rut.It will make a big difrance in what kind of hunting I will do. [ IT SHURE WILL NOT BE OUT OF A TRUCK]
I am a good spot and stalk hunter. This is how I kill most of my deer and elk.[with the bow] I was told useing a stand over water holes was good.BUT if they are in rut I will not use a stand.I will hunt off the ground and call/stalk .

I am allso sorry I just reread my 1st line of my post. It is not as cleer as I should have made it if I was going to give you crap for trying to post a sight to help me hunt Nilgai.Sad we where seting there shaking our heads at each this post.I think you posted as to help me find A Nilgai hunt.

I totaly left out I have a tag for Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge.All hunting there is on foot or bike.I was just trying to get some imfo on how to hunt and what kinds of sounds they produce. I am Very much of a caller/stalker hunter. But I can and will set in a stand if this is what need to be done.I will be down there the 3rd of Dec to the 10 of Dec.

I normaly shoot an elk with my bow so size is eazy.How you score a nice one is hard.

As I stated Rebel Hog sorry for running off at the mouth. I beleave this was my falt TOTALY.
