Texas African Game Hunts


Nile Lechwe are a species of antelope originally found in the swamps and grasslands of South Sudan and Ethiopia. Living in a ecosystem that was prone to flooding, Nile Lechwe have adapted to become very efficient swimmers. Males on average are 39 to 41 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh between 200 to 260 lbs. Their coats are shaggy, with particularly long hair on the cheeks for both sexes. Nile lechwe exhibit extreme sexual dimorphism. Females are golden-brown with white underbellies and no horns. Juveniles also have a golden-brown coat, but the color changes to dark brown in young males when they reach two to three years of age. Adult males are blackish-brown to russet with white ‘hoods’ over their shoulders and small white patches over their eyes. The horns of the adult males are 20–34 in long, strongly ridged at their bases and are curved at the tips.

Our hunting styles vary as to method of take and time of year. We primarily hunt safari style, glassing hill sides and valleys. When they are deep in the brush, we will stalk ridges and glass. For those who are bow hunting, it is just a matter of sitting and waiting. Aoudad deer are as wary as any whitetail so it takes patience.

You will be staying in our new 7,000 foot Hunter’s Lodge which was complete the summer of 2014. The main lodge includes 32 foot ceilings with black walnut walls covered with trophies from around the world. A granite bar top and service area is perfect for relaxing and telling hunting stories. The back porch overlooks a lake where it is not uncommon to see Sable Antelope, Kudu, Axis Deer, and Whitetail Deer drinking water. There are 4 casitas with 2 queen sized beds and a private living room. One room and the lodge and surroundings are wheel chair accessible so all can enjoy the facilities and outdoors. Additionally, you can fly your plane into our 5,000 foot paved Star S Airport which is located in the middle of the ranch. At Star S Ranch, you will find all the amenities needed for a Corporate Retreat built around the wildlife and hunting loved by the avid hunter.

If you are looking for a true Trophy Kudu hunting experience with world record quality kudu, privacy, tremendous facilities, an experienced friendly staff, and among the simplest, fairest pricing in the industry, the 14,000 acre Star S Ranch should be on your short list.
