Interesting Zebu Hunting Information:

  • The term “Zebu” is taken from the Tibetan word “ceba,” meaning “hump.”  Similar to the humps found on camels, the Zebu has a hump that stores fat.  Zebus can survive off of this fat during extended food shortages.
  • The Zebu is seen as a sacred animal in India and is considered to represent the bull of Shiva.
  • These bovids live from 12 to 16 years of age.
  • Zebus are the only species of cattle that are able to adapt to life in the hot tropics with ease, making it an animal that is perfectly suited for Ox Ranch!
  • There are over 74 breeds of Zebus that are split evenly between Africa and South Asia.
  • They are one of the smallest species of cattle found on planet Earth!

    Trip Of A Lifetime! If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind hunt, this is it!! I have been wanting to harvest a Zebu from South Asia for a very long time and Ox Ranch finally made my dream come true!

    Beyond Awesome !!! Come expecting to be blown away by the experience. UNBELIEVABLE ! It’s been a couple years since I had the opportunity to hunt the OX. I said back then it is a once in a lifetime hunt. I harvested a Scimitar Horned Orex, and a huge trophy chocolate fallow. My brother harvested a 428” elk. I’d love to hunt the OX one more time before my time on earth is done. It’d be great to bring my wife just so she could experience the cabin, the excellent food and fun feeding the Giraffes and all the friendly critters that frequent the amazing main lodge. This ranch, while being tough on a ole guys budget is just too hard to explain. You have to experience it for yourself, but bring lots of dough or heavy duty credit cards, cause you are going to have a hard time stopping a awesome harvest.

Review your hunt!
