Axis Deer

DOE PRICE: $600

Axis deer are also called chital deer or spotted Indian deer. In 1932, it was introduced to Texas as a game animal. Many axis deer eventually escaped to become wild animals in Texas. While the vast majority of axis deer remain in captivity, thousands roam the state freely, taking advantage of the warm weather and ample grasses similar to their native land. Wild axis deer in Texas compete with native white-tailed deer for resources, plus they are more resistant to disease outbreaks than white-tailed deer. Compared to a white-tailed deer of the same age, axis are typically slightly taller with a longer body. "bucks," range from 100 to 300 pounds, while females, or "does," range from 75 to 200 pounds.
It is considered by many to be the most beautiful of deer with an orange coat marked with white spots - similar to a white-tailed fawn - that remain throughout its life, as well as a white patch on its throat. They have two large antlers that can reach 30 inches in length and usually only have three points.

Trophy Elk Hunting

Rocky Mountain Elk

CALL FOR PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

Elk are the second largest member of the deer family (Cervidae), ranging from 800-1100lbs for mature bulls, and from 500-660lbs for adult cows. With a total body length between 80-100 inches and front shoulder height between 55-60 inches, they are of formidable size, second only to moose (Alces alces) in the deer family. The Native American name for elk is “Wapati”, which is used to describe their characteristic “white rump”. They are typically tawny brown, or light tan in color, with a mane of darker, longer hair from the front shoulders forward. Only male (bull) elk have antlers, which are grown in late spring and summer and shed every year before being replaced. Antlers begin to grow at year one and continue throughout the bull’s lifespan, with maximum antler size typically seen in 7-8-year-old bulls. Antlers average 6 tines each with a length up to 40-45 inches and can weigh 15-20lbs each. Antler size can vary from one bull to the next, and is influenced by factors such as age, spring forage quality, and

nutritional condition of bulls at a young age. Their large antlers are used primarily for establishing dominance over rival males during the rut (breeding season) but are also useful for defense against predators. Average lifespans for elk differ, with cows typically living longer (15-18 years) than bulls (10-13 years).

Nilgai Hunting

Nilgai are the largest Asian antelope.  The nilgai are indigenous to the Indian subcontinent, and Hindus accord it the same sacred status as cattle. Accordingly, the nilgai is the only one of the four Indian antelopes that is still abundant. Nilgai is the Hindustani word for “blue cow,” which describes the blue-gray of adult bulls. (Cows are orange-brown.) The nilgai’s conformation, however, is more horselike than cowlike: it has a long neck with a short upright mane, a bony narrow head, a barrel-like chest, strong legs, and high withers sloping back to the croup. On the other hand, it has a hock-length cow’s tail that ends in a black tuft. Both sexes have similar markings; white areas include the cheek spots, ear tips, large throat bib, brisket, belly, rump patch, and underside of the tail. Its lower legs are banded black and white. Maximum contrast is

achieved in prime males, which turn nearly black. They grow much bigger than cows, up to 5 feet tall and 660 pounds, compared with 470 pounds for cows; they also have a thicker neck and a tassel of black hair bordering the white bib. But the male’s cowlike horns are quite small, being 6–7 inches long.

Bison Hunting in Texas

The American bison was named the national mammal of the United States on May 9, 2016. This majestic animal joins the ranks of the Bald Eagle as the official symbol of our country—and much like the eagle, they're a symbol of our American identity and one of the greatest conservation success stories of all time. Bison are the largest native grazer of America’s Northern Great Plains and are North America’s largest terrestrial mammal. Bison can weigh up to a whopping 2,000 pounds, reaching a length of up to 12 feet. Despite their mass, they can still hit speeds of 40 miles per hour when running. Male and females are look very similar but have some subtle differences. Females have a smaller head in a oval shape, an arrow forehead. They also have smaller horn bases that are approx. 2” diameter in yearlings and approx. 2–2½ ” diameter in mature 

females. Males on the other hand have a larger head in a "V" shape, broader forehead and have larger horn bases. Yearling male bases are approx. 2¾” diameter while mature Bulls bases approx. 3½” + diameter.
