    Default free range antelope

    Not sure if I posted these before or not , but we have lots of exotics that free range in Texas.
    About 30 minutes down the road from our place I saw a small herd of blackbuck antelope wandering around inside of a regular old barbed wire cattle pasture a few years ago.
    The dominant bucks are really pretty animals , the one we saw was a young one .
    The does drop fawns twice a year and the bucks get stupid when they are in heat and often hurt each other seriously .

    Most of the time any animal , bird or whatever causes a problem when brought here , the ringneck pheasant seems to be a plus but there are many more problems.

    I would have figured the locals would have kept them thinned out

    nutria are ok as big water rats go , why would you say that
    common carp are not so bad according to some that eat them
    Europe starlings are nice white spot birds
    English sparrows keep the fast food parking lots clean
    what gets better air over nothing than an asian big head carp
    and why would 15 ft long pythons be a problem i wonder
    snake heads fight real well too , just saying
    fire ants need love too ...
    of course we must not forget the lionfish as well
    in the end though the tiger mosquito is one of my favorites , with its helicopter size and big ole nasty hurts right now bite and leaves a whelp like a ball bat strike it runs second to none on the invasion
    and the list goes on and on dont ya know

    the local coyotes have fun with them some
    but they tend to run smaller than a small deer ,so meat isnt an abundant factor
    and i never tried to eat one , they may not taste good ?
    not sure , i do know my buds take good care of the Axis deer herds far south of there

    Went to school with some boys that shot a collared bear. Hauled the thing around until the Game Wardens caught up with them.

    collars might or might not protect an animal in the wild , years ago i followed a hand raised buck story and when he got a real nice rack on his head someone shot him with a collar on him too ....

    Shooting collared, and likely domesticated game, is like shooting turkeys under a bird feeder. No fair chase involved. Just bloodlust.

    Describe fair chase?
    Does hunting always include fair chase?
    For that matter, describe hunting?
    Leaving our own biases out of coarse.
