Anyone ever been on the Rhodes Canyon Oryx hunt? I drew the Dec. hunt and was looking for some information.

subfan-----I hunted the Stallion Range. Do you visit monstermuleys? If so, I think vinnihunt got his there & there is a post about Rhodes there. To be honest, there are a lot of oryx on the White Sands. You are going to have a ball !! If a fun hunt .

I don't know about Rhodes Cyn. not sure where it's at.
My son was stationed there at white sands for 4 years, I tagged along on a few hunts, the number one problem you will run into is not a lack of Oryx but a lack of nice horned Oryx ones with both horns intack many are broken off one side or both.
They are big animals and taste great http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif and good shot placement is a must as they can soak up some lead if not put in the right place, my son took all his with a 270 and once he even let me look thru the scope at one http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-cool-shades-down.gif
There will be NO shortage of animals at least on all my trips there. good luck and don't shoot the first one unless it's what you want and or close to a road.

Thanks for the information, I am acquiring all the information I can get as this is a once in a lifetime hunt. The hardest part is the waiting but that gives me a chance to save $$$.
