Forister Exotics Corporate Exotic Hunting
Jamie with Houston Controls brought a group out last month and we put them on some good hunting. The second fall trip was set for this past weekend and early in the week Jamie forwarded me the guest list. 12 hunters and a couple extra maybe to shoot a doe if they can. Ok no problem we got this. first day we wanted to spread everyone out and try to get some animals down and we started quickly. by the end of the first evening we had a few nice Blackbuck down. Second day brought a few more whitetail and Exotics in to the skinning shed. Saturday night we made a few laps with the spotlight and found 1 good axis buck lurking around. Sunday morning we where able to finish up the hunt with a couple of nice whitetail, a fallow buck and a stag. Congrats to all of these great people for their trophies and we thank Houston Controls for another great weekend of hunting and fellowship with some excellent folks.
Blackbuck Hunts at Forister Exotics
Doug had a couple of his clients out at the ranch yesterday in search of an Exotic. With multiple animals on the menu we decided to hunt Safari style and just see how it played out. We Looked at some good Mouflon Rams and passed on them and saw some excellent Axis bucks that we just never could get a shot at. After lunch we decided to go back and look for one of the Blackbuck we had see earlier in the day. After looking at him closely we decided to take him. Well you know how that goes about the time you decide to shoot everything runs off! So we tried to keep up with him and eventually lost track of him. As we approached a big clearing where the road forked we noticed a few Blackbuck females crossing and so we figured the buck had to be close. We moved in to get a close look and as we did we found the Blackbuck we were after fighting another male 50 yards in the brush. We waited a few seconds for them to move into a clearing and Eric made a heck of a shot free handed and dropped the Blackbuck in his tracks. Great Job Eric and Congrats on your first Exotic Trophy.
