    Went Oryx hunting this morning. Had to drive between a ranchers home and his bed and breakfast in order to reach the hunting area. Standing between the two buildings was an Oryx. I didn't dare shoot him since I was only fifty yards from the house and they were still in bed. It sure got the hunt off to a good start.

    Just north of the Stallion missle range. We actually drove thru an uncontrolled part of the range while hunting.

    Spent many moons hanging out with the oryx on the Donna Anna range. We'd usually see them around the state line road. I didn't know you could hunt them in the summertime--lordy its gotta be in the mid 90's right now. Your meat will be jerky before it hits the ground! Good hunting...
