Yeah... but a trophy nilgai still looks like an overgrown goat and a trophy elk is well... a trophy elk
That's just condescending.
But, If I were to mount one of them, I have to agree 100%.
Well, both animals are awesome. But consider this : you can probably take 3 trophy Nilgai for what it will cost to take 1 trophy elk. And you don't ever have to leave Texas.
Good point. Cost is also a very good variable in this decision.
On the question: Elk tastes amazing. Nilgai tastes amazing. However, they are different. How? I'm not exactly sure,
. Haven't had elk in a while, but it's very similar to Red deer, which is very similar to axis, which are both cheaper that both of these trophies. Meat wise, shoot a red hind. Point being you don't base this kind of a hunt solely on meat.
