Hey guys,
Im new to this forum. Over the past year I have met a couple Texans while hunting in Idaho and Colorado. These guys have been super kind and I have stayed in contact with them. A few of these guys spoke really highly of this forum and they told me I should join when I told them I hunted Aoudad DIY early this year. Well, here I am, haha. I applied for tags all over the west so I figured I would throw my name in the hat for some of the Texas draw hunts through TPWD. I can be kind of lucky when it comes to drawing tags and wouldn't you know it I drew Nilgai for the Lower Rio Grande Valley NWR - Teniente Feb 6-9th permit. I was wondering if any of you have done this hunt? What can I expect? I have hunted all over, but I have never hunted down in that area and I definitely haven't ever hunted Nilgai. I have looked at the area on googly earth, google maps, and onX. Im guessing its just brush country? Any info or advice would be appreciated.

Feel free to send me a pm if that would be preferable.

Thanks in advance,

texas bowhunters has several reports on the lower teniente

i have only hunted the laguna atascosa for them and it was with archery.

they are a tough critter
the land is brush and all things that like to poke you smile

i have not been to teniente, but it is probably similar to laguna.
very few trees of size, at least none that would hold a tree stand.
thick thick brush along with open areas of high grass or weeds

fyi, if they bust you or spook, they do not stop running for quite a while.
so you better sneak up on them when they don't see you or sit still and wait for them to move thru
i know that is a master of the obvious statement, but i saw so many dudes just walking aimlessly and then acting surprised when the nilgai busted out of there at 400 yds away.
they have eagle vision, it would seem.

Stuff my dad said in the deer blind

"I can dive deeper and come up drier"
"did you do that?"
