DISTRIBUTION India, Nepal and Bhutan.

REMARKS "Hunting the Indian bison, as it was called by the British in India, was considered a highly noble undertaking. A bull gaur with horns spreading over three feet is as impressive a trophy as anyone could wish for. Formidable, huge, potentially dangerous and elusive, the gaur tested the skill and endurance of any hunter attempting to collect it. The usual method of hunting was to locate fresh tracks and follow, hopefully being able to approach the animal while it was still feeding, for once bedded down it was virtually impossible to approach undetected. Its huge size required shooting with heavy caliber rifles, and the amount of damage a gaur could sustain before succumbing is difficult to believe." (Capt. John H. Brandt)
