I have harvested 3 NM oryx. The guy I would use is Mark Haynes he owns Ironsight Outfitters out of Hobbs NM. Last time I checked he had harvested I believe 290 some, more than any other outfitter. He has access to one of 3 ranches that boarder the missile range. He is the only outfitter for that ranch. The neat thing about drawing a tag is you could hunt that ranch and the public that is landlocked by that ranch. If you need any more info on it let me know. Best of luck
Rookhawk, this hunt was just one of the things you'll be doing for your kids. Just think of how the show and tell is going to be for them once they get back to school. Your daughter takes a bear your son takes an Oryx. What a lucky dad you are! You and yours will relive these hunts for decades to come. The time you spend with your kids is priceless, while money comes and goes.
Great job! Congrats for training (and her) to shoot well and respect the game! Fantastic beast! I’ve followed a similar path with not posting pictures of my children with game...
Absolutely wonderful- good on you Dad!!Postscript:
We did indeed use Mark Haynes and he was a consummate professional. As of July 3rd, he has guided and harvested 303 Oryx in New Mexico. No one has guided more.
The land is mostly locked up (private) and the Oryx are very sneaky, standing 50 yards inside the safety of WSMR 99% of the time. The directly bordering private lands stand the best chance of getting an Oryx off base.
I highly recommend Mark. He knows Oryx. He knows how to find them. He has trespass rights where they roam. He has a good rig. He knows how to cape. He had 80 pounds of ice ready to get the meat chilled immediately. 5-star outfitter: Mark Haynes - Iron Sight Guide Service.
My son got a beautiful Oryx on the hunt. We processed all night yesterday, we grind burgers today!
To protect my kid from a future world where you get harassed for being a hunter, I won’t put up the good pictures that show his face well. That’s my son with Mr. Mark Haynes.
Mark states that he is the youngest Hunter he is aware of that has taken an Oryx in New Mexico being 8. Kids are a specialty for him, a 9 year old is hunting with him in the next week also.
