I will be helping balance an antelope herd Saturday and I've heard the meat is not that good. I've alway believed in eating anything that I kill. Any suggestions on how to make this meat edible? Also who around here tans hides. I may get one done.

I have killed 3 blackbuck anetelope so that is a small sample, the 2 does were fantastic meat while the buck my dog would not eat. Have had other bucks that others have killed and would say close to whitetail in taste. No idea why that one buck was not good but he wasn't.

Good luck on the hunt, they are small so do not expect a lot of meat from one.

Hides tanned comes up from time to time but do not remember what place is always recommended. Bet someone chimes in with it though.

That's great to hear. I have a choice of young bucks or does. I'll take the does. Thanks.

I enjoyed every ounce of my last Bull Blackbuck! He was good. I just put a doe in the processor yesterday. Prep and cooking are always key with any animal

Was at a lodge once where a guy killed a blackbuck just for the head, me and another guy split the meat. It was delicious.

Blackbuck meat is pretty good. I would say its better than whitetail but not quite as good as axis. Only two exotics Ive killed and eaten, so thats the best judgement I can give.

Tastes like chicken to me.. grin The few that I have eaten were all great tasting. I think with any wild game how you handle it and how qickly you take of it after the kill is key.

I gave away most of the blackbuck I've gotten. It's about the same in taste as whitetail. It is a little chewy though. I will probably kill one more for the wall with my bow. Then no more.

Wasn't my favorite meat for sure, North Texas Tannery in Denton has always done me well, great guy

Came up zero today anyway. I passed on the antelope herd waiting on a particular wt doe the owner wanted harvested. I did see some awesome deer and around 40 antelope. He told me to shoot at will next time. And I will.

I killed 2 bucks this year and processed them both. I love the meat, they are grass eaters like cows and axis. I dont cut them into steaks i only grind them for sausage ground meat, chili and such.

Indeed.
I am amazed at how many have posted that blackbuck is no good. I prefer it over whitetail and I eat about four of each animal per year, bucks and does. Along with a few axis.
We like to keep a ham or shoulder whole and do it up as a roast. The burger is excellent with about anything.

Only time I have tasted a bad meal of blackbuck was from a bad cook. Don't make it into steaks. Jerky is excellent. Stew meat, hamburger, butterfly the back straps or try a standing rib roast. Its more lean than whitetail or axis. There is not a lot of meat, but it's good.
