with skinning and quartering.

$1300.

Location- Sonora Tx. Rifle only and to hunt only, no live sale.

Why would anyone pay $1300 to kill a broken horn 16” Blackbuck?

I guess you haven't seen what the market is for them right now. After the freeze, anthrax in some areas and drought now they are hard to come by.
You could have the other horn fixed, maybe someone needs a cape, hunt for a kid... lots of options.
If you need anymore reasons let me know....

Why would anyone worry about what some else is paying for a hunt?

That's what I was thinking.

I wanted to know What makes a broken horned 16” Blackbuck worth $1300. They are one of the best looking mounts. But would you mount one with a broken horn?
I’ve only butchered one. It was killed while being captured. It didn’t have that much meat on it.
I thought the answer Mike gave was a pretty good sales pitch for a $1300 hunt.

Prices of everything are going up including hunts. Inflation. 4 years ago the average price of a nilgai bull hunt was about 3K, Now they are $4500 from what I’m seeing.

My daughter shot a broken horn BB. The taxidermist made a mold of the long horn and made a horn for the broken one. Looked great, couldn't tell where the break was.

The cost of hunts continues to amaze me BUT Mulie Mike has not seemed to follow this increase. His hunts are priced right and are great times.

Was it just the tip that was broken? If so, I can see how that would work. However, they can't just make a mold of an entire Blackbuck horn and use it for the opposite side. The horn would spiral in the wrong direction and look absolutely ridiculous.

It was the whole horn, maybe 4" showing. I never noticed the spiral but that's a good question. Flagg Group did the mount. It's my daughters and is in storage. Looks like she is going to be moving to Austin, so, I will take a close look when I see it during her move.
