Blackbucks were introduced to Argentina and the USA. Blackbucks generally live on open plains and open woodlands in herds of five to 50 animals with one dominant male.
They are very fast. Speeds of more than 80 km/h (50 mph) have been recorded. They are primarily grazers and avoid forested areas. They require water every day and may move long distances in search of water and forage in summer. Usually, they feed during the day. Their diet consists mostly of grasses. The Indian Blackbuck is considered to be the second fastest in the world next to the Cheetah.
The blackbuck is a medium size antelope, which is sexually dimorphic. The males at birth are brown without horns. However, with secretion of sexual hormone, males develop a pair of corkscrew horns and their body color changes to elegant black. The normal lifespan of a Blackbuck is about 12 to 15 years. The average weight of an adult male is 75-110 pounds with horns averaging a length of 14-18 inches. The blackbuck also has unique white rings around its eyes.
Antelopes are animals brought from India perfectly adapted to the large areas of our country. They move in herds and their main defense is their eyesight and also, their escape velocity. Males develop antlers spiral that can reach 60 centimeters. Their weight can reach 50 kilograms and are black on its back and white on his abdomen. Females are born brown and in maturity are light brown.
It is a hunt that requires a delicate approach and a shot from at least 150 meters away.
The season is all year round. The best time to hunt them is during the breeding season in late summer and fall.
