I just back from a Nilgai hunt in far South Texas. These are big tough animals to hunt, lots of fun and lots of great eating

First time I saw one of those in deep south Texas I was impressed with its size. Great job there. Estimates on its weight?

Seen one mounted in the sneak position like you would have a whitetail mounted. It looked pretty neat.


Congratulations on your trophy up

I was holding his head/neck up with my right hand. Just his head is amzingly heavy. I could only hold him for a few seconds at a time while we snapped as many pics as possible
I like the idea of a semi sneak or maybe the head turned to one side,
If anyone has any mount photos I would appreciate seeing them
Thanks

Great trophy, G. Was this the Sarita's pasture?
