Default Blue Bull Down !!

I just got back from a successful Nilgai hunt at the King.
Had a great time and we were successful on 2 bulls.
My bull tapes out at 34” I believe this is a truly a trophy bull.
Any thoughts on this size ?
Trophy to me none the less just curious if he is truly a big boy !

Bowhunted them on the King ranch many many years ago. My brother connected on one with his Longbow but we never recovered it. Looks like a trophy to me!!

Thanks guys !
I am very proud of him. He is an old bull for sure.
Deff earned this one, keeping up with a 22 yr old guide walking 6-7 miles was a challenge for sure.
And these bulls are super paranoid and bail at first sight, they run like a horse and don’t stop.
Toughest skin suckers I’ve ever shot for sure.
I would highly recommend hunting these peculiar animals for sure.
Gonna take him to Taxi today !

I heard the meat is terrible.....I can take it off your hands and dispose of it properly.


What measures 34”? Can you explain how and what you “taped”?

from google:
SCI, Rowland Ward and CIC all list nilgai in their record books. SCI has two categories for North American nilgai: any nilgai and free-range only. The score is calculated by length of horn and circumference of bases in inches. The minimum for any nilgai is 24 (the world record is 42 6/8) while the minimum for free-range is 25 (world record is 41 4/8).
