    Thats amazing! I'm super jealous, they're on my list of critters to bag, I hear they taste absolutely amazing. Congrats on the kill!

    I was out on the same hunt and you didn't say HI! ha ha... Killed mine Sat morning and went home.. Lots of fun out on the Mcgregor.. Great job on your Oryx.. Getting to be fewer and fewer on the Range they need to decrease the tags.

    Very cool. Looks a lot like a gemsbok. Are they actually the same thing? I was lucky enough to get 4 animals harvested in Africa and would love to go back and get one.

    Congrats. Beautiful bull and imho, the best game meat. I haven't tried it all, but have tried a lot and some unique (whale steak). I got a 41 6/8" bull in S Africa and in 10 days, we had Gemsbok/Oryx backstrap/filets for dinner 5 nights. Can't wait to get one there in NM so I can have all the meat. Non-resident, so could be this yr, could be never, but I'll keep applying.

    That's AWESOME!! I've always wanted to do that hunt! Thanx for sharing your hunt with us. What a great photo. I thought I heard you can't take any cameras on the military base. Maybe it's just White Sands?

    What cartridge were you using?

    Thanks. Cameras are allowed on McGregor. I used my 338 RUM loaded with 270 grain ELD-X.

    It is a Gemsbok. They were introduced to the White Sands, New Mexico back in the 60s-70s to increase hunting opportunity in Southern New Mexico. The herd expanded at an unexpected rate. You can now hunt them on WSMR, McGregor, and off range. The two horn WSMR hunt is OIL. You can draw McGregor, broken horn WSMR , and off range tags multiple times.
