Beautiful Oryx, I always thought you couldn't take a camera on the range? You have taken some nice critters. I have seen some of your critters on BTC.

Thanks Ironhead, you're right about the cameras. We stashed ours in the morning outside the gate, before they searched our rig. That pic was taken about 300-400 yards down the road from the entrance to the WSMR. Kinda pain in the ass, but if you get caught bootlegging a camera onto the range, you forefit your tag, which is 1 per lifetime.

Nice Oryx, I always thought about putting in but haven't.  Did you go DIY or did you use a guide?

If you apply on line with a credit card it only cost you $6.  Then if you get drawn it cost around $1,700.  Deadline to apply is before all the other draws, I believe you have to apply by march maybe sooner.

The tag was $1616.00, I believe the deadline in in Feb. I went guided, $1200.00 through USO, my pard got to go for free, that was meals for both, hotel, and transportation in the field.Steak & Lobster both nights along with brewski. A guy could kill one on his own pretty easy, but with the tag fee and only a 2 day season, once in a lifetime draw, I didn't want to chance it. Also, you are unable to scout, so the guide fee was a pretty small price to pay.

Awesome, I put in for it, but didn't draw.  guess I got the elk tag though.  I'm not sure if I will put in this year as I'm not sure I can handle the money going out.  Congrats on the hunt.

That is an awesome looking animal! I drew a tag for Stallion Range Jan. 19,20 2008. Which part of the range were you on? Any words of wisdom?
