I am trying to find information on the legality of red lechwe, on a ranch in Texas. Is it a protected species or can it be hunted just the same as axis, blackbuck, etc. Also while I'm asking what are the regulations on barasingha. thank you

for the price of one animal in Texas you can shoot 3 or 4 animals & that includes your PH & your stay for 7 days.

South Africa;
Kudu $1000.
Springbuck $300.
Lechwe $1600.
Zebra $850.
Oryx $600.
Wildebeest $600.

The plane flight is only $1700. round trip.
& yes you can eat the animals you shoot.

Like I said Cheaper to go to Africa. Ive been there twice.
