Cinco Canyon Ranch is home to large herds of axis deer which have thrived in the Texas Hill Country for many years. With our males weighing as much as 250 pounds and females weighing up to 145 pounds this is one of our strongest herds on our ranch. These magnificent animals prefer light brush, grass, and dense thickets of post oaks. It is not unusual to see groups of 30-40 axis roaming across the varied ranch terrain. The fact that axis breed year around makes it not unusual to find males hard antlered in all seasons. Most males are in hard antlers March-December, although bucks with exceptional antlers can be found throughout the year.

Blackbuck Antelope represent another one of the larger herds at Cinco Canyon Ranch. The ringed corkscrew horns of trophy blackbuck at 5CR can measure up to 29 inches. The dominant mature males can be distinguished by their black coloring with contrasting white markings. This species prefers to graze in large grassland areas on the ranch. Blackbuck are another one of 5CR’s species that breed year around, but they are most active in rut during the spring and fall seasons.

Bucks are in hard antler mid-to-late August until late April with rut occurring between September and February. Big-bodied males weigh up to 260 pounds and females weigh up to 110 pounds.

Primarily grazers, Gemsbok bulls at 5CR can approach 500 pounds with long straight horns that can measure in excess of 45 inches. Females, which also have straight horns, are identically colored with both gender displaying grayish brown coats with distinct black and white facial markings which form a white butterfly when viewed from the front. These antelope prefer to stay in herds. They make for a fast and exciting spot, stalk, or safari style hunt.

The males weigh anywhere from 300-450 pounds while the females weigh from 200-300 pounds. These animals are primarily grazers and generally prefer the open expanses and grassland of the ranch. These magnificent antelope make for a fast and exciting spot, stalk, and safari style hunt.

Nilgai antelope is another antelope herd that thrives at Cinco Canyon Ranch. The males weigh typically in excess of 500 pounds and females averaging over 380 pounds. The mature males know as “blue bulls” have short, conical horns and are charcoal gray coloring which darkens as the bulls mature. They as well have a magnificent beard. The females are a light brown color. These animals are very skittish, with males banding together and running separately from females except during breeding season December-March. Due to their elusive nature and the amount of ground they can cover quickly, this hunt is mainly done safari style.
