I just came back from a nilgai hunt on the king ranch, after getting rained out. This is my third time there--nilgai 3-hunter-0. Maybe next month.

Back to the Kenedy ranch (inside the King Ranch) for nilgai. Skunked again. Never saw a nilgai, except a cow on someone else's truck. I did get a nice 10 pt whitetail and a doe, but it is now nilgai 4-hunter 0 ,)

I gotta admit I would like to try for one............I guess they are free ranging down there on the Kennedy Ranch from what I have read. Tough beasts. You need to put it where it counts.
Maybe hunt No. 5 will be the charm.

I am working on the backstraps as fast as I can. They are sure good.

Have you got a Nilgi yet? I hunted on the King and killed 2 in 1997 had a blast. I would go again if the opportunity arrived and the price is right. Leave me know. If you here of a good hunt I would like to go on it and tape it for our new show coming up. They are a magnificent animal and they can run!
I think the audience would like to see them. We are doing something different than most.

no, i have not been back for nilgai. the leopard hunt took up this year's budget, and the 1953 chevy panel truck restoration will take up next years budget, so likely no nilgai in my immediate future.

What part of the King Ranch were you on. I had a great hunt on there in 97 with I think his name was Amos Dewitt. I booked a bow hunt with Pebbles 4 Arrows Outfitters and it almost fixed me on hunting trips.
If you ever here of a good place for a great price on exotics I would be interested in it. We have a deal working on a TV show that I know will have a lot of exotic hunts on it so leave me know.

Re: nigai hunts
I was fortunate enough to Bag a big Blue Bull on the Kennedy Ranch last month. I was guided by Sam Ilse with Lomas Chicas Outfitters. It took two trips but it was well worth it. I saw lots of game, very impressive whitetails, hogs and plenty of Nalgai. As the previous hunter said, these are very elusive animals. Take your time, listen to your guide and you will be posting here as well. Good luck ! If you want Sam's info send me an E-mail

Re: nigai hunts
i hunted the sarita division for the nilgai, the last time was on the kennedy with a friend on his lease there. i will not likely get in much hunting in the near future as one of my partners had surgery and i am on call every other day for a while. ,)
