What’s a One-Horned Oryx? MDF Livermore-Pleasanton Banquet

A one horned Oryx (aka gemsbok) is simply an oryx that has one horn missing. With only one horn, an oryx is not an attractive trophy, so they are hunted as a “managment” hunt, meaning that they are removed from the herd by hunters who pay a discounted price. I’m told that a taxidermist can recreate the lost horn for a shoulder mount.

Here’s are offering for our March 15, 2013 banquet:

A28     Free Range Mature Broken Horn Oryx Hunting in New Mexico with Armendaris Ranch: The Armendaris Ranch near Truth or Consequences, New Mexico has  generously donated a two-day hunt for a mature broken horn Oryx (gemsbok) for one hunter.  At more than 350,000 acres, the Armendaris Ranch has become synonymous with big Oryx and exciting hunts.  This is one of just a few places in North America where free ranging Oryx may be hunted and entering a chancy public drawing is NOT needed.  Included with this donation is 1×1 guiding, use of hunt vehicle, walk-in cooler if needed and field preparation of the trophy.  Not included are travel expenses to/from the ranch, accommodations, meals or State of New Mexico hunting license/tag fees.  This is a 2 day hunt that is usually completed in the first day due to the population of Oryx on the large private ranch. There is a land owner certificate for the guaranteed tag but the purchaser must purchase the tag from New Mexico Department of Fish and Game.
