About the MPR Lechwe Hunt
The Lechwe's native habitat can be found in Central Africa throughout Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and parts of Angola and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Featuring a beautiful coat and horns that gently curve back, it can be found in grassy and watery habitats across our Texas hunting ranch. You can hunt Red Lechwe and Southern Lechwe any time of the year in Texas, as no seasonal restrictions have been set. Red Lechwes are water-loving animals that can frequently be found in lakes, spring-fed creeks, and shallow marshes.
Lechwe hunting is a unique experience. While a Red Lechwe is slow on dry land, it is a really good swimmer. It can run quite fast in knee-deep water because of a water-repellant substance that covers their legs. A diurnal animal, the Lechwe tends to gather in very large single-sex herds, which are mixed during mating season.
The animal weighs between 190 and 300 pounds, with horns ranging from 27 to 37 inches. When you are on the hunt, look for behaviors such as Lechwe dunking their heads underwater. Lechwes often eat aquatic plants. They’re easily identified by tall hindquarters; in fact, the rear of the animal is significantly taller than its front, especially when compared to other types of antelopes.
