Trophy Exotic Hunts
The Axis Deer is native to India, Nepal and Sri Lanka and are best identified by their burnt orange coat with white spots (similar to a whitetail fawn) and a black streak running the length of their spine. White throat patches are prominent in males and females. Males sport large antlers that grow skyward, forking at the base and again inside each main beam. Most axis bucks aspire to be 6 points (3 on left & 3 on right), but non-typical 7th and 8th+ points near the bases are not uncommon. Adult male antlers can reach lengths of just over 40", but 28-36" is most common. Females do not normally grow antlers. Live weights range from 150 to 250 lbs in mature males; 90 to 150 lbs in adult females. Antler cycles are often irregular depending on what time of the year they were born, with some sporting hardened antlers while others are still in different stages of growth.
The Alpine Ibex (Capra ibex), also known as the Steinbock or Bouquetin, is a species of wild goat that lives in the mountains of the European Alps. It is a sexually dimorphic species with larger males who carry larger, curved horns. The coat color is typically brownish grey. Alpine ibex tend to live in steep, rough terrain above the snow line.
Males commonly grow to a height of 35 to 40 inches at the withers, with a body length of 59 to 67 inches and weigh from 148 to 258 lbs. Alpine Ibexes have large, backwards-curving, horns with numerous ridges along their length that range from 27 to 39 inches.
Alpine Ibex $15,000.00 to $30,000.00
The Blackbuck Antelope hails from India and Pakistan and are one of the smallest antelope species of the exotic breeds. Mature males differ in appearance greatly from that of females. As males age, their coloration graduates from a light tan at birth to dark brown, almost black, at 5 to 6 years of age and older. These older males exhibit a striking contrast in color with their bright white bellies, muzzle, and "eyebrows". Females and young have similar white markings to males with main coat color being tan. Male horns "corkscrew" upward in a V-shape with 1-4 tight spirals (depending on age and genetic potential) and reach up to 30 inches. Females usually lack horns, but some may (see picture - below). Female horns are often thinner, smoother, and may grow in non-typical patterns. Males typically weigh from 70 - 100 lbs. while females weigh slightly less. Considered one of the fastest animals in the world. Their keen eye sight and blazing speeds are its main protection against predators. When alarmed, the herd disperses in high leaps and bounds, then breaks off into a quick gallop.
The Fallow Deer originally came from Europe, Asia Minor and Iran and occur in 4 basic color variations - "common", "menil", "melanistic" and "white". All have white spots on their backs (though sometimes very faint) and white rumps/tails with black tips. True albinism (completely white with pink eyes) is extremely rare. Color variations interbreed regularly. Fawns are born tan. Adult males have heavily palmated antlers that are often irregular in shape. Palmation span varies greatly but usually stretches 5.5 to 10.5 inches in diameter. Younger males have spikes or more "regular" antlers comprised of beams with 3 to 4 basic points per side and little to no palmation. Females do not grow antlers and male antlers are shed and regrown each year. Males weigh from 175 to 200 lbs., on average; female weights range from 55 to 120 lbs.

The Markhor is an exotic goat that lives in the mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan. There are currently less than 1,200 of these goats in the wild and a permit from the Pakistani government will cost upwards of US $150,000.00. The Markhor is one of the largest wild goats and can reach weights in excess of 250 lbs and stand close to 46" at the shoulder. Male goats are light brown to tan in color with long, shaggy hair hanging from their necks and chest that can reach knee length. Chin hair and face of males is often black. They have a white underbelly and black and white pattern on their legs. Markhor possess "flat" horns that spiral tightly and grow upward in a v-shaped pattern (overall appearance is similar to a drill bit). Male horns can grow to lengths surpassing 65 inches (nearly 5 feet, measured along the curve).
Markhor Goat $15,000.00 TO $20,000.00
The Nubian Ibex is an exotic goat hailing from the mountainous regions of Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt. Their body coat is sandy brown to tan in the summer, generally transitioning to a grayish color in winter months. Hindquarters may appear more pale in color and most underparts are white. Underside of tail and long tuft of chin hair (goatee) are black. Males also have a small black ridge of hair running along their backs. Leg coloration and horn configuration often distinguish nubian ibex from other ibexes. Short, stout legs are marked with distinct black and white markings. Large, semicircular horns grow up, back, curl downward and are marked with 24 to 36 knobby ridges along the outer curve (prominent in males). Length of adult male horns average 30 inches but reach upwards of 4+ feet (record 54.5 inches). Female horns are much thinner and shorter, growing from 5 to 14 inches. Males generally weigh 100 to 165 lbs, but can exceed 200 lbs., while females range from 55 to 90 lbs.
Nubian Ibex $17,500.00
The Transcaspian Urial is an exotic sheep which is found in western central Asia from northeastern Iran and western Kazakhstan to Pakistan's Balochistan and Ladakh regions of North India. Its habitat consists of grassy slopes below the timberline. Urials rarely move to the rocky areas of the mountains. Transcaspian Urials feed mainly on grass but are able to eat leaves of trees and bushes if needed. Transcaspian Urial males have large horns, curling outwards from the top of the head turning in to end somewhere behind the head. The horns of the males may be up to 39 inches long. The shoulder height of an adult male is 31 and 35 inches.
Transcaspian Urial $20,000.00 to $40,000.00
The Big Horned Willie's Ram is a cross between a Big Horned Ram and a Transcapian Uriel. They have gained popularity and notoriety because we have genetically removed the Big Horned Rams susceptibility to Malignant Catarrhal Fever (MCF) by crossing them with a Transcapian Uriel. MCF has devastated native Big Horned Ram populations and our hope is that the industry and our governmental research agencies will find a cure for MCF in Big Horned Rams and other likely susceptible species. Until then these beautiful crosses will impress even the most discerning hunter.

Trophy African Game Hunts
The Aoudad, originally from Africa, has thick, sweeping horns, and can be identified by their long tufts of hair running the length of their chest and forelegs, sometimes referred to as "chaps". Aoudad have a tan to sandy brown coat that helps them in blending in to rocky, barren landscapes. They have a deep chest with seemingly small hindquarters - giving a "stocky" appearance. Males and females both have horns, with the females' being much shorter and with less mass than an adult male - similar to that of a young male. Female horns will usually measure 12-20 inches in length, with males stretching to 35"+ (Aoudad rams with horns reaching 30" from base to tip are often compared to whitetail bucks scoring 150 B&C). Average weights of a male ram is around 200 lbs., but can exceed 300 lbs., while females typically weigh in at 100-120 lbs.
The Addax Antelope originates in the Sahara Desert and have loosely spiraling horns that angle upward and back in both males and females. Horns with 1.5 to 3 twists are common.

The Eland Antelope is native to Africa and can weigh up to 2,200 lbs. and standing close to 6 ft. at the shoulder, eland antelope are the world's largest antelope. One of the eland's most noticeable attributes is their enlarged dewlap (a skin fold hanging from the neck). Eland also have a ridge of erect hair that runs the back of their neck to their upper shoulders. Coat color is brown, but will often appear blue/gray to in mature bulls as hair thins. Young show white, vertical stripes that become more faint as animal ages. They have a long, slender tail with dark brush tip. Both sexes grow smooth horns that spiral or corkscrew near their base. Females may have longer, but thinner horns than their male counterparts. Horns average 24" with lengths up to 44" in adult males. Gregarious, by nature, largely a herd animal. This social behavior begins at an early age with mutual attraction and licking between calves. Tend to avoid dense woodlands and feed in open grasslands. Most active in early morning and late afternoon, lying in shade during heat of the day. Eland are surprisingly fast considering their immense size, reaching speeds of 40+ mph.
The Gemsbok Antelope originated in East Africa and the Gemsbok are light brownish-grey to tan in color, with lighter patches to the bottom rear of the rump. They have striking black and white facial markings that are unique to gemsbok and form a white "butterfly" pattern when viewed head on. Their tails are long, tassle-like and black in color. A dark brown stripe extends from the chin down the bottom edge of the neck through the join of the shoulder and leg along the lower flank of each side to the brown section of the rear leg. They have muscular necks and shoulders and their legs have white 'socks' with a black patch on the front of both the front legs and both genders have long, straight, ringed horns. These horns average 33" (reaching 4 feet) in length and are perfectly straight on males. Their horns extend from the base of the skull to a slight outward and rearward angle. Gemsbok are one of the few antelope species where female trophies are sometimes more desirable than males. Gemsbok stand around 4.5 ft at the shoulder; males can weigh between 450-500 lbs, while females weigh 350-400 lbs. In instances of high productivity grazing, fat deposits under the skin become noticeable.
