About the MPR Himalayan Tahr Hunt
Montgomery Properties Ranch is proud to offer the opportunity to experience tahr hunting at its best. Tahrs are native to the Himalayas, as their natural territory is in northern India, Tibet, and Nepal, but you can go Himalayan tahr hunting right here at our Texas hunting ranch.
Tahrs are identified by their dense, wooly winter coat, which is reddish to dark brown with a thick undercoat. Along with their winter coat, males also grow a long, shaggy mane around the neck and shoulders, which extends down the front legs. After the spring molt, the coat is much shorter and lighter in color. The legs of a tahr are relatively short, and the head is proportionally small. The eyes are large, and the ears are small and pointed.
The horns, which range from 13 to 18 inches (usually larger in males), are triangular in cross-section and are found in both sexes. They curve upward, backward, and then inward. Tahrs weigh anywhere from 76 to 181 pounds. In their native habitat, these animals thrive in treacherous mountain environments. Tahrs have a lifespan of 14 to 15 years, while the oldest ever recorded lived to 22 years old in captivity. Himalayan tahrs are also identified by their even number of toes and an ability to grasp smooth and rough surfaces on rough terrain.
Tahr hunting is a year-round experience in Texas, but the best time for trophy hunts are from late November until April. You’ll find opportunities to find them in their lush winter coats. However, this exotic hunting in Texas can be challenging. A tahr has hooves with a rubber-like core, so it can grip smooth rocks; the material at the rim of their hooves makes it highly versatile on uneven rocky surfaces. Tahrs are able to maneuver tough terrain very quickly and confidently. They spend much of their time grazing on grasses, leaves, and fruits.
A Texas Himalayan tahr hunt is the perfect addition to your Texas hunting experience. You can hunt safari style, spot and stalk, or sit patiently in a blind and use a rifle or bow and arrow if you prefer. The ultimate exotic game hunt can be experienced right here in Texas.
