We are offering a trophy Water Buffalo hunt. We are a bow hunting only ranch, but with this bull we would make some exceptions. You could use your rifle if you would like. This bull is massive in horns and body size. You don't realize how big the horns are until you put your hands on them. He is the sub species River Water Buffalo. They are the biggest of all the Water Buffalo. He should be a shoe in for the #1 archery for the year and probably would be with rifle also. The meat is some of the healthiest meat there is. We rarely eat beef any more just because we raise these animals. Check out the USDA fact sheet in comparison with beef.
92% less fat than beef
45% less calories than beef
67% less cholesterol than beef
11-30% more protein than beef
10% more minerals than beef

For the trophy and how much meat you get, we consider this is the cheapest hunt we offer. The price $2000

Let me ask a dumb question if you don't mind. Will he have the bosses across the top of his head like the African Buffalo? I can't tell by the photo. Hes an awesome looking animal.

That is a great price on that bull. The one pictured below was $4000.00 here in TX. This one is is slightly different as you can see by the horns, but about the same size. This one is the same as the ones hunted in Australia and I believe the one offered on this thread is an Argentine.

Either way, they are HUGE! The bull I mounted sticks out over 4 feet from the wall.

Good luck selling this hunt!!! Im jealous.

Pretty good deal for the amount of beef someone will take home.

If someone is interested in the hunt, but doesn't have the room for all the meat, I will let the hunt go for $1700 and I will have the bull processed. I am sure he will butcher out 1000 lbs or more. We killed a much smaller bull last year and got 600 lbs of meat.

Here is a bull that was #1 a couple years back. The bull we have has longer horns than this one.

He's a neat bull, if I was in the States and needed 1000 pounds of meat I'd whack him.

He'd look fine as a skull mount. I had one as a skull mount for years, movers stold it when I moved from Spain to Italy.
