The Nilgai Antelope is from India.  The older males are bluish gray and are nicknamed "The Blue Bull".  Younger males and females are tan colored.  The bull has long hair on his neck that looks like a turkey beard.  Horns are really short in comparison to his face.  He can weigh 600 lbs. and looks similar to a mountain goat.

Spring Turkey Hunting - Firearms

When we hunted spring turkey years (decades!) ago, it was with a rifle.  Rocky started hearing about calling birds and already being proficient in rattling Whitetail Deer, we couldn't wait to try it.  Oh my goodness - calling birds that had never been called was an awesome experience.  The 1st day we had four jakes that we literally kept trying to get away from and each time we moved our location, here they would come running with tongues wagging.  I named them "the Four Amigos" and resorted to standing up and 'shooing' them away.  Too fun!!  I harvested this 11" bearded gobbler that day and of course, we no longer used rifles for turkey but the trusted shotgun. 

A 12-gauge shotgun is the choice of the majority of our turkey hunters.  If using a 20-guage you need to shoot within 30 yards of the bird.  We have a good many hunters using guns manufactured specifically for turkey hunting with extra full or super-full chokes and low power scopes.

Spring Turkey Hunting Season Almost Here!!!

Turkeys have been dancing around our house for over a month in preparation for their mating season - such a beautiful thing to both see and hear.  Walking outside in the evening, turkeys respond to every noise by a resounding 'gobble' that is repeated by scores of turkeys roosting around the pond in the large oak trees.  An amazing tribute to their creator!  Wish all our hunters could experience it.  Turkey season begins Saturday - get your camo face on!

We have 4 hunts left - call your friends and head to Texas!
