Forister Exotics Blackbuck Hunts
Dan made his way back to Forister Exotics in search of a good Blackbuck. We took a look around the first day and ended up spotting a few good Blackbuck we just couldn’t get close enough to get a shot. After another morning of looking at animals we pulled into one of the pastures and this guy gave us a look. with it being early in the hunt we decided to keep looking. After lunch we came back and fed corn in a couple spots and ended up going after the same Blackbuck we let pass earlier that morning. We managed to catch up to him and Dan was able to get a shot off. The Blackbuck jumped and ran 50 yards or so. We watched him fall and made our way over to him. After we took a few pictures we made our way to the skinning pole. After examining the bullet damage on the inside we where all scratching our heads how this Blackbuck took a single step. We found practically nothing left of the heart. Anyways Dan the man with a great shot and a took a great Trophy Blackbuck back to New Mexico to be mounted. Congrats Dan on a great Blackbuck.
Forister Exotics Blackbuck Hunts
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.
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.
