Trophy Nilgai Hunting in the Gulf Coast of Texas


"I had a great hunt with Lendell Laxton at L & L Hunting Service down in South Texas.


Not only is Lendell a great guy, his knowledge of his hunt area and his persistence are second to none. I would gladly hunt anything with Lendell and recommend him anytime!!!"

-Bone Collector

A great outfitter, offers great hunts, for great animals, with great service and pays great attention to detail. Lendell is a great outfitter in every regard. His Nilgai area is filled with trophy class Nilgai, his knowledge of those Nilgai is impressive, his equipment is top notch and ultimately, if Lendell says something, it is the truth. I will definitely be back for another hunt with Lendell and his son Bryan


Thanks for the hunt!

Lendell, thank you very much for the Nilgai hunt in South Texas last week. I have never had such a hunting experience in all of my 40 years of hunting. The hunt was mostly a success because of the atmosphere you provide while hunting these exciting animals. Thank you very much and I look forward to hunting with you again next season.

Hunting with Lendell and L&L Hunting Services is a great and memorable experience. I recently hunted Nilgai with Lendell on his south Texas property at Raymondville. I had heard stories of other Nilgai hunters about how scarce the animals could be and how they were almost impossible to stalk. I had arrived a day early so Lendell decided to take advantage of the afternoon and try a short hunt. Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised to see a herd of Nilgai within minutes of beginning our hunt. In the first two hours of my hunt I suppose I got to look at at least 100 head of Nilgai and 6 to 8 quality bulls. Later that afternoon I collected a very nice bull that should qualify for an SCI Gold Medal. What a great afternoon. Len dell is a great guide and a first class outfitter. It is obvious that his goal is to make your hunt a pleasant and memorable experience. I highly recommend L&L Hunting Services and look forward to checking out his other hunts. Thanks for a great hunt,



Hunting with Lendell Laxton, is a hunting experience hard to put into words. I've had the pleasure of hunting with Lendell all my life, and have always had successful hunts. The feeling you get when you walk up to that trophy you just bagged is a feeling you get quite often hunting with Lendell. His hunting and tracking experience puts you in the path of your trophy most of the time, he never seems to amaze me, he is like one of them. He hunts harder than anybody I know, he is always the first one up in the mornings and the last in bed and does what ever it takes to get you the trophy animal of a life time. While hunting with Lendell I have always seem to get the biggest, maturest animals the ranches have to offer and always know walking up to that trophy I just shoot is not going to disappoint me. The hunts he has to offer are the hunts many people search a life time to find, Lendell makes a hunt much more than just a hunt, I have seen him make many people very happy and enjoy listening to the stories they have to tell after there hunting experience, and after hunts like that you forget about the bologna sandwiches and day old fried pies, ha ha. I could go on and on talking about the hunting experiences I have had with Lendell, those of you that have hunted with him know exactly what I am talking about, If you have not hunted with him I strongly recommend booking a hunt with him, you will not be disappointed. I am looking forward to many more successful hunting seasons, and you can bet I call L&L hunting service for my next hunting experience. I am very proud to be his his son and enjoy passing all the knowledge of hunting he has taught me to my son. Thanks for all of the exciting and remember able trips.



Lendell did a great job with are hunting party of seven from Kansas! We booked two Nilgal hunts with Lendell. He took good care of us both times in 1990 & 1993. Thanks a lot,

Lendell, Thanks for the great hunt. It was definitely an experience I will remember for a very long time. Best hunt I have been on. Thanks for your patience and effort to get me in position to take a nice bull.

I have finally found Nilgai paradise! I have been hunting for a bull Nilgai on at least seven different hunting trips. These trips were on pastures on the King Ranch and Kennedy Ranch and have never even had a broad side - still shot, much less be able to take pictures of what a good bull Nilgai looks like. My first trip with Lendell with L&L changed all of this. We got to the Ranch pasture at 3:30 p.m. to try to squeeze an afternoon hunt in since the "official" hunt didn't start until the next day. By 3:45 I had already seen and photographed more bulls than I had seen on the last 7 trips combined! We stalked, that's right....stalked, a nice bull and by 4:10 p.m. I had my first "Blue Bull" on the ground. It was a good bull, especially since it was my first, that measured 8-7/8". The best part about the hunt is that Lendell does not shoot from the truck, but likes to get away from the vehicle so it doesn't spook the animals in the future. All of the other hunts we hunted from vehicles and always had to take running shots. I spent the rest of the day and the next filming the other hunts and got some great footage. I would suggest this hunt to any hunter, especially one that has been on other nilgai hunts. Nowhere in South Texas will you find this many bull nilgai and this kind of professional guide service. The guide Lendell and the ranch foreman Juan that accompanied us are first class individuals. I will be a return customer.



One of my favorite hunts in North America, and one of the most underrated, is hunting Nilgai bulls along the coastal plains of south Texas. I've hunted many of the ranches that offer free-ranging Nilgai hunts, but the Ranch near Raymondville with L&L Hunting Services is by far the best outfit I have hunted with. The number and quality of bulls you will see is second to none. Also, because hunting pressure is light, you can spot and stalk these bulls which makes for a very enjoyable and memorable experience. I've been fortunate enough to have hunted Africa eight times and hunting these large antelope fair chase is the closest thing I have found to replicating the true safari state of mind. I would recommend this hunt without reservation, to anyone who wants a fun, action-packed adventure. Bring plenty of gun and have a great time!
