Very nice, James! I have always felt there is something almost evil looking about nilgai. Nicely done!

This was one hunt I am not soon to forget. The Nilgai are as tough as any Water Buffalo.

Whit, In a write up about nilgai the horns are described as "devil-like"...

James, where did this hunt take place? Nilgai are very high on my list to hunt with my one of my 460s. I haven't researched where all they exist, but I only know of south Texas. And the wooded area in the background doesn't look like south Texas...


One helluva trophy bull you got there.
