Nilgai - Dan Moody's Exotic Trophy Hunting Services
The nilgai is the biggest Asian antelope. Nilgai stand 4-5 feet at the shoulder and are 6-6.6 feet long. Mature nilgai typically weigh 260 - 500 lb. Over 60% of births result in twins, though births of 1 or 3 do occur. They reach sexual maturity at around 18 months and can live as long as 21 years. Nilgai have thin legs and a robust body that slopes down from the shoulder. Their long, narrow heads are topped by two small conical horns which are straight and tilted slightly forward. Horns on trophy males are normally 8.5-10 inches. They have an erectile mane on the back of the neck and a tubular shaped "hair pennant" on the midsection of the throat. Female nilgai have a short yellow-brown coat. Males' coats gradually darken to a grey-blue as they reach maturity. They have white spots on the cheeks and white coloring on the edges of the lips. They also have a white throat bib and a narrow white stripe along the underside of the body that widens at the rear. In the wild, females and young males gather in herds of about fifteen individuals while older males are often solitary. Individual male or female nilgais may be encountered in cultivated or semi-urban areas.
If you’re the type of hunter that likes to hunt 12 months a year, you've come to the right place. I offer monster exotics and action packed hog hunting. Exotics are hunted on foot, if you are able. We do have blinds if needed. You will pack 3-5 miles a day, so wear comfortable boots. Most shots will be between 100-300 yards. Please have your weapon sighted in and know where it is hitting at 100 yards. If you are a bow hunter, no problem! We have well placed stands.
Meals and lodging are available for this hunt.
