Re: Texas Nilgai

You did'nt happened to hunt with a Ranch manager .I can't remember his name. But he's been there about 25 yrs.
You would have stayed in Green Cabins. This is a family run ranch. This Ranch borders the King ranch.

Re: Texas Nilgai

Do not believe it was the ranch you mentioned, we stayed in Raymondville. Going to the King shortly with a new Sendero in 7mm Rem. mag. to hunt El Diablo again, plus a piggie and a turkey. Just not fair - having to work this hard [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

I hope you hit the turkey in the head or else that 7mm will ruin a lot of meat. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Texas Nilgai

Glad you got to come out to our neck of the country and get in a little trigger time. I have always wanted to go after Nilgi, I always heard they were tough to get in close on.:p Course this is what I have heard.

Good luck on your next trip, the weather has been great for hunting around here lately. On those turkey's, if all you got with you is that big 7 try to shoot it right at the base of the neck junction of the breast looking straight at ya. There ain't much on the backside you will miss. I thought this was BS when I heard it from a fellow around the corner from me, but after seeing several he brought home, taken with his 300 WM, I figured he knew what he was talking about.

Hogs, well take all you want or can manage to cram in coolers, I am sure we won't miss a single one. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Good luck, and don't work too hard. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
