Default Nilgai

Sorry to keep you waiting. I hunted this last weekend. It was tough, I saw a fraction of the nilgai I saw a few years ago on my bow hunt. I put in probably 20 miles between my bike and boots on Saturday. I watched another hunter miss a running bull three times and tracked the bull with my binos as he went into an island of brush about 1/2 mile away. I decided to go after him and found a small mound to get a better vantage point. As I was looking I turned around and saw another bull running across a field about 200 yards away. My 7 mm mag stopped him in his tracks. It was about 4:45 when I shot him, after getting him back to the nearest road I called the volunteers working the hunt and they were nice enough to pick me up around 9:00 pm. I would have been out there all night otherwise. I hunted some on Sunday but was pretty beat. When I left Sunday evening I think they were up to 12 kills.

Dang... it was still daylight when you took the picture with the meat on the bike and they picked you up at 9:00. How far back in there were you? Like the engineuity of using the bike to hold the meat.

A long way.... Toward the west side of the refuge. During a bowhunt two years ago I shot a small bull around the same area at 4:30 pm and got back to the check station a little after 11:00 pm.

I guess they don't come looking for you after a certain time like most of the TPWD hunts.

Congrats to the hunter. Way to get it done on one of the most difficult, if not the most difficult hunt there is in TX public hunting. My hats off to you. Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations man! Looks and sounds like about the same area I hunted this season. It's a hell of a trek but it's super rewarding!
