Have you ever heard of the Indian Antelope?

Blackbuck, native to India is a unique and prized antelope now found in parts of South America and the United States.

Flaunting thick, long, spiraled horns, it is easy to get a trophy hunter's attention. Individuals that go out for Blackbuck always return with classic tales of their first Blackbuck sighting; noting the Blackbuck's fantastic horns, exotic markings and quiet, still demeanor.

Though males normally sport the trophy horns, females are also known for growing the unusual horns, too. Blackbuck feed on rough grasses, trees and small brush.

Hunters that are up for a challenge can pursue blackbuck on foot for a classic walk-and-stalk hunt. Otherwise tree blinds, or a highseat is a great technique to ensure a clear, clean shot. Blackbuck males respond well to artificial calls during and near breeding season; when you see a nice doe, get ready for a buck to be not far behind.

Their trophy rack is enough of an excuse to prep your bow or rifle for your next hunt- an exotic antelope adventure!
