Blackbuck Down

Forister Exotics Blackbuck Hunts

Dave Blackbuck

Dave had come down to Forister Exotics and taken an Elk, Addax and Axis Buck already in 2014 and was back for a good Blackbuck Hunt. We decided to safari style hunt while the other 2 hunters that came along with him this trip where in the stands hunting their animals in another pasture. We made our way into the back pasture and made a couple laps looking for the blackbuck. After not seeing any Blackbuck for a while we finally spotted one about a mile away in a big open flat. As we made our way around the pasture to try to get to the blackbuck we came across a giant Mouflon standing on the edge of the brush. Dave was tempted to take this mouflon since it was such a brute but decided to move forward and try to get on the Blackbuck. Once we got to the ridge he was on I guess the blackbuck had moved back into the brush. As we sat glassing for him we spotted another blackbuck on the next ridge over and decided to make our way over to him. We got to him and as we approached he made a mad dash for the cedar. I decided to put out a little corn down the road to see if he would come back out and we would get up behind a clump of cedar and wait. Sure enough a few minutes later the Blackbuck made his way out very slowly. The blackbuck finally turned and Dave mad a great shot at over 200 yards. The buck Jumped probably 10 feet in the air doing a half twist back flip and hit the ground running. Dave steadied for another shot and before he could make it the Blackbuck crashed down. We both looked at each other in amazement and after examining the shot we couldn’t believe the blackbuck made the jump and run. Well with another fine trophy to add to the wall 2014 came to close. Thank you Dave and congrats on a fine Blackbuck.
