This is my one and only dream hunt. I hope to someday take an oryx in New Mexico, but until I can save the money, I'll just continue to dream. Those orxy, in my opinion, are one of the most prettiest animals out there.

Good luck to those who sent in apps.

Treedog-- sorry I'm not to adept at these computer skills. Much better at chasing elk in the Rockies LOL Anyway an Oryx is another name for a gemsbuck. They are a desert antelope from the Kalahari Desert in Nambia. The have a long black spike horn usually around 36" to 48". They are big about the size of a spike bull. They have a tan body with black stockings & a brautiful black & white face. They have been known to kill a lion with those long horns!
Hope this helps.
