Exotic Hunts in Texas

Axis – Blackbuck – Aoudad – Oryx & More!

Texas exotic hunts are very popular among sportsmen and women. These hunts got their start in the 1950s when large Texas ranches purchased excess animals from the local zoos. With well over 100 species from almost every continent in the world, Texas has something to offer any hunter.

Many species can now only be hunted in Texas as the population on the ranches far exceeds their native range. With the advent of high fence hunting and breeding, exotics numbers are soaring. Interestingly, some species, such as axis, have escaped low fence properties and established herds in the wild.

The Texas hill country is a special place that most animals acclimate well to. Whether hunting low or high fence there is no telling what you may see from your blind or stand. Nomad Hunts offers both high fence and low fence exotic hunting year round.

    Nomad Hunts went above and beyond our expectations. The accommodations, food, company, and experiences were phenomenal. We were able to harvest a trophy Blackbuck and a trophy Axis. Joe & Deb made us feel like family and we feel like we have met some lifelong friends. We are already planning on coming back and can’t wait!” –  Nikki Harms

    Texas Hunting Checklist

    The essentials for our Texas exotic hunts include:

    • Weapon
    • Ammo
    • Hunting pants, field boots, cap & vest
    • Cooler for your meat to transport home
    • etc…

    What to Wear

    Hunting or “field pants” are highly recommended, especially those with canvas-faced fronts. Comfortable field boots, especially durable leather boots, help feet trudge through fields. Blaze orange hat or cap helps with field safety and of course blocks the sun. A hunting vest with blaze orange material holds harvested game birds, shotgun shells, water bottles, and other accessories such as gloves and sunglasses.
