Hunt wild, free-roaming oryx or gemsbok in New Mexico

This hunt is offered by an outfitter who has more experience hunting wild oryx in North America than anybody else.

You must draw a tag to hunt some of his areas, and on private land you're allowed to buy depredation a tag over the counter. The tag-drawing hunt is less expensive.

Every year I hear of hunters who have drawn a tag, drove all the way to hunt on their own, and then did not score. You're wise to hire an experienced outfitter to make sure you maximize your chances of scoring.

In the past few years he has produced 25 bulls and a 90 percent hunter success rate on depredation hunts on private lands that border the White Sands Missile Range, and the public land hunters he has guided all have filled their tags. The application deadline last year was in early February.

Motel lodging and meals are extra. You must apply for these tags right away. Call if you're interested.

Oryx were released in New Mexico in 1969 and have thrived in the Southwestern desert. The venison is considered by many to be the best eating of all wild game.

Note: If you want to draw a tag, you must apply in February.
