I never contemplated shooting a nilgai, until I saw one in the flesh. One might find it's way on to my short list someday. They are a unique animal for sure. And a tough handgun trophy no doubt.
I have read in hunting publications, that appropriate rifle cartridges start at .300 Mag and upward, with .338s or even .375s considered ideal. That would make tackling one with a handgun a daunting task. WELL DONE GUYS!
Congratulations on 2 fine handgun trophies! I saw them several times when I lived there but never got a chance to hunt them, seemed to be very spooky. Two with 2 shots is great work on your part, great job!
I know they are free range in South Texas. Are they also free range in South Carolina?
