Last minute Oryx

Shooter: Al Vickers

Posted: Jul 27, 2012

Effective April 9, 2012, the Scimitar-Horned Oryx would require a CITIES permit even here in the USA and from private herds. I always wanted one for my trophy room. I ended up in Oklahoma in March of 2012 and looked over many animals before receiving permission to shoot. The Hornady 165gr. BTSP from a .30-06 at 142 yards knocked the Oryx down at the hit. There was no tracking necessary. Thanks Hornady!
