I am wanting to book a spot and stalk Nilgai hunt for my wife as a Christmas present. I have googled and found several outfits around Mansfield, but I figured I would poll the green screen to see if there were any outfitters that shined through from personal experience. Thanks in advance.

Norias Division/King Ranch is hard to beat for quality and experience.

I've never been, but I'd go to the King Ranch. Several TBH'ers have been on hunts there and had a great experience.

Mike Powell with all seasons guide service. Been fishing, and Turkey hunting with him and there at the ranch when one of his hunters came back successful. Nothing but great things to say about him.

Check with Mike. He has a great ranch for Nilgai down there, I believe it is 20,000 acres if I remember correctly. Not sure of his prices these days but the place(Yterria) is as good as anything the King Ranch has to offer. The spot and stalk part is priceless in my opinion. Good luck.

Thanks for all the input guys.

I know caliber is a big concern with Nilgai, but I was planning on having her use a 30-06 with heavier grain nosler partition or Barnes TSX. I feel as though that should be more than adequate given proper shot placement.

Talk to the guide or outfitter. Some have a 300 magnum minimum though I agree with you re the .30-06 and a heavier or monometal bullet.

I've only fished with Mike, but have friends that hunted nilgai with him. All of them brought back trophy blue bulls. Mike is legit, give him a shout.

For the guys that have hunted the king ranch, was your hunt more spot and stalk or was it hunting out of a high rack?
The reason I ask is I have been told at the king you ride around, spot a bull, then speed after him and slam on the breaks and start shooting.

My hunt was a spot and stalk, nothing at all like this.
