Ankole-Watusi Hunting Information
The Ankole-Watusi (aka Ankole Longhorn Cattle) is a medium-sized breed of cattle that originated in central Africa, but has since been brought over and domesticated in America. They are often referred to as “the cattle of kings” due to their regal appearance.
It’s almost impossible to mistake the Ankole-Watusi with any other breed of cattle. Their oversized horns can reach upwards of 8 ft. from tip to tip, and they have the widest horn circumference of any cattle breed, with a record 40.7 inches. These horns come in handy when the Ankole-Watusi needs to herd or protect their young from potential predators.
Like most cattle, the Ankole-Watusi lives in large grasslands or prairies where it can graze on leaves and grass. They require very little water and are able to endure harsh environments, especially those of extreme heat.
The one-of-kind look and massive, wide-set horns of the Ankole-Watusi put this animal in a class of its own as a trophy. You are guaranteed a unique cattle hunting experience unlike any other.
