The blackbuck (antelope cervicapra), also known as the Indian antelope, is an antelope found in India. The blackbuck is the sole extant member of the genus Antelope.  The blackbuck antelope was introduced to Argentina in the early 1920s and quickly became one of the most successful imports.  Blackbucks are small, weighing in at around 90 lbs. with jet black coats and straight spiraled horns.  The horns can sometimes make three or four complete turns and can measure up to 22 inches with exceptional trophies exceeding 22 inches.

Where in Argentina can I hunt Blackbucks?

La Pampa is a popular area in Argentina to hunt Blackbuck. The terrain of La Pampa is mostly flat with some areas of rolling hills, so hunters tend to find this region much easier for hunting than other regions of Argentina. Blackbucks are herbivores that graze on low grasses. They can generally be found in grassy plains or in thinly forested areas. Read The History of Blackbuck Hunting in Argentina.

Blackbuck shot placement

  • The ideal shot placement is in the chest area, directly behind the shoulder. Aim for the center of the chest to hit the vital organs, including the heart and lungs, for a quick and effective kill. It's important to avoid shooting too far forward or too far back, as this can result in a non-fatal wound that may be difficult to recover. For larger Blackbuck, a shot placed slightly higher in the neck area can also be effective. The recommended range to hunt Blackbuck is between 50-150 yards, depending on the terrain and your shooting ability.
