Texas Blackbuck Antelope are originally from the plains of India (hunting has been discontinued here), Pakistan and Nepal. Blackbuck antelope were originally released in Texas in the Edwards Plateau (Kerr County) in 1932. In 1988, only eight Texas counties had free-ranging blackbuck, but these antelope were confined on ranches in 86 counties. Of the total number of exotics confined on Texas ranches in 1988, only the axis deer outnumbered the Blackbuck antelope.
About the size of a small deer, the blackbuck is a member of the antelope family. The permanent horns, not antlers which may shed, of the Blackbuck are ringed with 1 to 5 turns, rarely more than 4 turns, and can be as long as 28 inches. A trophy Blackbuck is 18+ inches straight-line. In the male, the upper body is black (dark brown), and the belly and eye rings are white. The light-brown female is usually hornless. Blackbucks usually roam the plains in herds of 15 to 20 animals with one dominant male. In the summer, the Blackbuck males will turn brown in most cases so that they can reflect the sun, while in winter, most mature Blackbuck males, turn darker to retract the heat.
