From 1969-1977, 95 oryx were relocated from Kalahari Desert in Africa onto the White Sands Missile Range and surrounding areas. They have continued to thrive in the area and are very unique animals. Whether you choose the fully outfitted or guided-only option, your hunt will also include skinning or rough caping, and quartering once your oryx is down. On this hunt, you can expect driving and glassing along with some travel on ATVs and some walking. This is a great option for the youth hunter! Public tags must be drawn for this hunt. This is a 3 day 1:1 fully guided hunt. This hunt is meals and lodging hunter provided but can be added as an option. Option for a non-hunter companion. This can be either an on range or off range hunt. If selected as an on-range hunt, range rules and regulations will apply. On-range hunts are 3-days long, and the first half day will consist of a range briefing. On-range hunts are once-in-a-lifetime and will have tougher draw odds than off range hunts. The application period for big game species in New Mexico typically opens early in the year (January) and closes sometime in early to mid-March.
