Here is your chance to hunt oryx (gemsbok) without leaving the US. In addition to making a stunning trophy for your den, the meat is considered to be among the best of all wild game. The oryx population on the White Sands has been drastically reduced the past few years and this hunt is no longer the slam dunk it once was. With that said, our outfitter is still running100% shot opportunity.
Quick facts: Oryx were introduced to New Mexico from 1969-1977 via the Kalahari Desert in Africa. Both bulls and cows grow impressive horns and both are legal game. They have no specific breeding period but instead breed year round.

Applicants must purchase a $65 NR game License before applying but can denote the refund option if not drawn for oryx. If not drawn, all money is refunded except for a $13 application fee. A maximum of two people may apply as a party. Hunters who commit to book if drawn, can use our outfitter’s license # on their applications which greatly increases their odds of drawing.
