Is anyone familar with the oryx hunts on the White Sands Missle Range? I would like to apply for a tag next year and did not know anything about the hunts, the chances of drawing or the hunting situation. Any information would be appreciated.
Good afternoon sir,
I ahve hunted for about 11 years for oryx in NM, I have downed a total of 5 from on-range and off-range. I don't know what area you drew, Small MR, Rhodes canyon,Tularosa pass or any of the others but the heard on the Small range are about gone. Rhodes, Tularosa, Stallion springs are still very good. MAIN THING. After the de-briefing in the morning, every one takes off like idiots a hundred miles an hour while still dark and pass 90% of them on the side of the road. WAIT till just twilite and then start. There are still 40+ horns out there. Most of the big ones you will find all by their self. As far as the longer ones, it mostly be the cows. Smaller base, but a little longer. Hard to find the big bulls. If you are hunting off range, thats a differant story. Hard to get alot of info out of people due to their own private spots. If you need more info, PLZ contact me by E-mail email@example.com
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
