Rhodes Canyon Oryx!!! (new pic p3)
« on: March 14, 2009, 09:07:44 AM »
Hunt Wa members did pretty good on the Oyrx draw.  My Dad and I drew the Rhodes Canyon for the end of next February.   :whoo:
Congrats again to Bearhunter who drew the January hunt in the same area.

Might have to look to put a high fence around the house to keep the tweekers out after getting mine mounted!

Google it. The world wide web is an amazing thing and information on nearly every subject is endless.

Congratulations! How much does it cost to apply each year?

Is there some type of fence on the WSMR, probably somewhere.  Here is quote from the New Mexico Game and Fish "Since there are no significant barriers to their movement, they have dispersed approximately 100 miles in all directions to private land and land managed by the U.S. Army, National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of Agriculture, and Bureau of Land Management."

i just did some research on these things in new mexico. how foolish the government was ! lets just release a non native antelope in new mexico that should be fine  :bdid:  my question about the fence wasn't a jab at you guys (if some one wants to hunt i fence i don't care) it was because i couldn't imagine some one letting a non native species run rampant. i hope you guys kill one sounds like they all need to be killed

Bear Hunter,

Are you going to use the old stick and string?

You need a spotter for your trip?

wouldn't quite consider this a high fenced hunt littlebuf.  If you have ever been to whitesands or the missle range down there.  You could spend a better part of your life trying to hike across it.  I actually don't remeber it being fenced but I could be wrong.

Bones right, not a high fence hunt, its a barbwire fence, they can leave the base, there is oryx off the base also. I believe there may be a draw for them as well, could be wrong.

Yes, there are off base hunts also.  Not sure if they are land owner tags or draw hunts though.

I also got the Rhodes Canyon tag for the end of January.  It must have been a good year for Washington hunters.
