New Mexico Oryx Hunt Help

Ok, I have been drawn for a state wide 30 day Oryx hunt. I spent all day Thursday scouting the Bosque Wild Life Refuge and came up with very little sign. Friday spend all day on the back side of the Fite Ranch and found a little more sign, but nothing real encouraging. However, we did see 25 - 30 Oryx on the White Sands property, but nothing would cross the fence.

Does any one have any suggestions or recommendations on where to possibly bag an Oryx?

Thanks,

Of course they wouldn't cross the fence they know they can't be shot at were they are at, you have to figure out a way to get them to cross???

I have tried the " here Oryx, Oryx, Oryx " method with very little success

I'll have to keep glassing and scouting, I know that they are out there, it's just a matter of time!

Is it hot or dry enough to warrant any water source hunting? If you know they are in the area, tracks,etc. they will have to drink some time

I have found Oryx several times on the other side of the river behind Bosque Del Apache. There is a huge hill climb it early or mid afternoon and glass.

Leadshot,

Thanks, we hiked from the parking area about 4 - 5 miles back in and found very little to no sign.

I know last year that area was the hot spot.

We also, ran into some bird hunters that they had seen lots of Oryx in the area last year and non this year.

Just goning to have to keep glassing the area!

I looked last weekend and found no sign on the refuge. I would glass the knob behind from a high elevation and see what you may. Numbers are lower every year.
