Barasingha Hunting Season
Hunting Trophy Barasingha
With its nimble reflexes and a superb sense of smell, a trophy sized Barasinga Deer delivers an exhilarating chase that will challenge even the most seasoned hunter. Not to be confused with White-tail Deer or Fallow Deer, Barasinga Deer have a rich golden brown summer coat bisected with a dark dorsal line that changes to a silvery brown coat in the winter and weigh between 350 and 400 pounds. Stags grow 30 to 35 inch long racks with 10 to 16 points, but a 42 inch trophy buck is not uncommon!
In the wild they live in herds of around sixty. A herd contains nearly two times as many females as males. The bucks stay with females only to mate. Dominant males gather up a harem, gets the prime territory and protects it fiercely.
Barasingha Deer are an endangered species from India and Nepal that were brought to Texas almost a century ago and have been hunted here since the 1990s. Barasinga are also known as Swamp Deer for their propensity to live near and in shallow water (swamps and marshes) but tend to take refuge from the Texas heat in tall brush. They frequent flat or rolling prairies and on the outskirts of forests where they feed mostly on dry grass and Live Oak (in Texas).
