Well, after my last day of class for the spring I headed out to hunt's bowhunting ranch for a scimitar oryx hunt. The first afternoon of the hunt I had a fifty yard shot a nice cow and two young bulls. I passed because I figured I would be able to get closer. That afternoon was spent watching the oryx at 100-150 yards, it was very entertaining watching the two young bulls spare. I also had the chance to watch a nice blackbuck at 15 yards for quite a while. The next morning found me in a ladder stand over looking a feeder that we thought the oryx may come into. well they never showed up but i could see them 250-300 yards away feeding. i watched them for an hour or until they bedded up. i also had two other nice blackbuck and several sika deer visit the feeder that morning. so i decided i would put a stalk on the oryx, more like a crawl because they where in the wide open and I had to belly crawl 200 yards across a dew covered meadow. After I don't know how long I got within 50 yards of the oryx, picked the biggest one out and shot. I hit her a little forward, but with the help of Rickey, we where able to put a lethal arrow in her. she measured Silver in the Records Of Exotics. Her longest horn was 36" and both bases where just over 5."
