Blackbuck Antelope

Just curious, what is considered a respectable length horns on a blackbuck antelope? Had a client bring a 27 long rack in with 4 or so curls. Is this big or just about average? Sure is beautiful.

It all depends on where it was taken and how it is measured. The SCI method measures around the curl and is most difficult to measure following the hair pattern in the horn. Other folks measure from the base to the point. If your measurement is the latter, you have a hummer imho. When we have hunted them, we never take one smaller than 18" tip to base.
