one of our members at DRSS, killed one of the simitar horned Oryx, at the ranch where we hold our two anual member hog hunts, and left the meat for the Jan hunt last year. Chris is the importer for Heym double rifles, and took a representative from the Heym factory down there to hunt one.
The meat was aboslutely the best wild meat I've ever eaten, other than Hogs! Like Kevin says, Eland is good, but S.H. Oryx is better!
The ranch has an exotic section behind high fence, but we don't hunt hogs inside there, smply because there are no hogs in there!
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
