Gemsbok are an excellent exotic species to hunt year-round for a beautiful trophy and to fill your freezer with some of the best tasting game meat.

Come experience the uniqueness of Flat Top Mesa at Covered S Ranch for an exotic hunting experience like none other in Texas!

A Gemsbok hunt at the Covered S Ranch will be a spot & stalk hunt for the bow & rifle hunter within the 3,000-acre Flat Top Mesa game preserve. If you have been to Africa, and depending on where, you will feel like you are back in Africa chasing them but can bring the meat home!  They are a tough, skittish, and elusive animal to hunt.  You will be fascinated with how their markings camouflage them.

Interesting Gemsbok Hunting Information:

  • Gemsbok are large antelope of the Oryx species that are accustomed to the harshest desert regions of Africa, capable of surviving in waterless wastelands where many animals would perish.
  • Gemsbok are powerfully built and known for their striking coloration with a mask-like face, and long, horse-like tail.
  • A female will hide her calf 3-6 weeks remaining nearby to nurse.  The calf’s pale brown color works as camouflage and will not develop its striking black-and-white face markings until it is ready to join the herd with its mother.
  • Gemsbok of both sexes have horns which are used as defensive weapons against predators even killing lions in their native lands.  A female will typically have a longer/narrower set of horns.
  • Gestation: 9 months and can have twins.
  • Lifespan: 18-20 years
