    Scimitar Horned Oryx Hunts in Texas

    Once we got Bruce’s Oryx all cleaned up and in the cooler it was time to get back in the pasture and complete Jeff’s Scimitar Horned Oryx hunts in Texas. We made our way back up the same ridge were we began the stalk that produced Bruce’s bull. Right away we spotted a big group of Scimitar and we began to try to move a little closer. As we approached The Oryx made their way down onto the next level on the side of the ridge. I quickly waved to Jeff let’s go and I began to make my way out to the point. As we made our way out there I could see the Oryx down to our left just holding for now but I figured when they started to move they would funnel across right in front of us. Some of the Oryx had made it around the point already but we got to watch about 20 of them funnel across. Well I didn’t see any bulls that I felt would be big enough so we spotted a lone bull on the next ridge making his way down to the flat. We moved into position to take a better look at this bull and he quickly made his way across in front of us. I determined he was to small. So while Jeff’s Scimitar Horned Oryx Hunts had heated up to a low boil we just couldn’t close the deal. We were quickly back in the mule locating the herd. Once we had them located we got back out and began to stalk closer to the herd. Before we made it we had a huge cow come across and stare us down. We quickly noticed a Bull coming across with her. After judging the horns I made the call and Jeff got on the sticks and waited for a shot. As the Oryx spotted us he quickly trotted forward and stopped to look back 1 more time. As soon as he did Jeff let is 300 wsm bark and his Scimitar Horned Oryx Hunts In Texas came to a close. Jeff had mentioned wanting to try for a blackbuck as well so the story is not over yet.

    Congrats Jeff on a nice bull.

    Bruce and his good friend Jeff made their way to Texas from Washington State to partake in Scimitar Horned Oryx Hunts in Texas. Once we got to the ranch the first morning we made a plan to find the herd and then try to make a plan from there. Once we spotted the herd the Scimitar Horned Oryx Hunts in Texas was on. We quickly made our way across the ridge and were able to glass some good animals that were standing on the next ridge. Jeff was actually up first with the plan to shoot the biggest bull we could find. Once we were done looking at the first group of Scimitar Horned Oryx we could tell there were more of them just out of our view. I decided to drop down and work around a lower ridge to get closer to the herd. As we came up were we thought the Oryx would be we found ourselves in a good spot we had Oryx in front of us and across the next ridge. As we tried to find the  big bull we spotted another Oryx bull and Jeff being the swell guy that he is, asked me if that bull was what we were looking for Bruce to take. I looked him over and I said yes that one is going to be right under the 40″ mark or should be. The game plan quickly changed and Bruce got set up on the shooting sticks and prepared to finish his Scimitar Horned Oryx Hunts in Texas. The Herd did not make it easy on us every time we would be ready for the shot another Oryx would mosey in front of or behind the bull we were after. Bruce being frustrated backed off the sticks and settled his nerve. After what seemed like 10 minutes I gave Bruce the all clear and he was ready. Once he squeezed the trigger the orxy rocked back hard took a few steps and was down. Bruce made a good shot and as his Scimitar Horned Oryx Hunts in Texas came to a close we still had to find a good one for Jeff stay tuned……
