Re: Oryx Hunt WSMR Stallion Range HELP
As previously stated you wil be getting lots of detail about the hunt, I have been lucky enough to be on the Stallion 7 times over the past 10 years either with friends or family hunting Oryx. The sucess rate has been steadily dropping as the Army and G&F have been putting a lot of pressure on the population but you will still see lots of Oryx. 10 years ago this was an easy hunt but nowadays you will have to work for your Oryx and they are a lot more skittish than they used to be....I'm not trying to scare you off but just trying to set your expectations against what you may read online.
Nonetheless this is a great opportunity, when you get your maps look towards the southern end of the unit down towards mockingbird gap and to the west you will see what's called the poison hills, we have taken two in this area in the past and the terrain had a little more natural breaks that allow for easier stalking......take some good binoculars and do lots of glassing versus just walking around, I try and stay mobile until I find the Oryx and stalk......most of the terrain in the middle of the unit is quite flat with semi tall bushes and its hard to put on a good stalk.......I shot my bull at 175 yds, my wife's was about 75yds and my son took his at 650yds so you need to be prepared for anything in between.
Congrats on a great hunt, pm me if you have any questions.
