That's a beauty of an animal!!!  Still gonna do it one of these years.  I should look at off base stuff, cause I am not too finicky about horns, but I do love some good eating critters!

I would be perfectly happy

I would be perfectly happy with an oryx like that one. I would be willing to hunt off range and take one like that as well but with the cost of the non resident tag at over 1,600 dollars everyone usually says to wait and hope to get lucky with drawing an on range tag as your odds of success should be much higher.

I really want to hunt them but want to make sure I get a decent chance if I'm going to spend that much money.

If I rember right the success

If I rember right the success rate on range is in the 60 - 70% range. I think I read last year off range was 11%, so for a non res I would hold out for the ONL.

Also it is by far the best meat I have eaten as of yet. Yes

Oryx meat

I just took down a scimitar horned oryx. Anyone has suggestions on processing ratios for sausage, and suggestions on other ways to prepare?
