Scimitar Horned Oryx are truly amazingly adaptive animals. Put them in a hot climate without water and they can raise their body temperature to 116 degrees. By doing this they conserve water by not sweating it out. That is evolution at its most innovative. And they can do without water for 9 to 10 months by getting whatever water they can from the vegetation they eat. That’s an amazing animal. No wonder their lifespan was up to 20 years in the wild.
Once thriving in huge herds in all of North Africa, they are extinct in the wild. No amount of adaptability can save an animal from poaching, human encroachment, climate changes or excess grazing and hunting. The good news is that Scimitar Horned Oryx herds in Texas number in the thousands thanks to the good works of Texas game reserves and breeding programs. Because of these programs, the Scimitar Horned Oryx is not facing extinction. Scimitar Horned Oryx are mostly white with reddish brown necks. They have a reddish/orange and white face mask and a long tufted tail. They are a good sized animal. Body length ranges from 4.9 feet to 7.5 feet. They grow to be about 4.6 feet at the shoulder and weigh anywhere from 220 to 480 pounds.
Hunting Scimitar Horned Oryx in Texas is great fun. These exotics are gregarious and love to hang out with each other. However, they are not that fond of humans hanging around with them. Although they are not as skittish as some and will look at hunters before running off, you’ll need to be within 100 to 200 yards to make your shot. And what a gift you’ll get when you bag your prize. Both sexes have beautiful long and slim horns that curve around to their backs. Their horns range from 30 inches to 42 inches although 46 to 50 inches are on the record books. And then there’s the meat. Not much has to be said about it — simply delicious. You can’t get this animal in the wild. That’s why Scimitar Horned Oryx hunting at our place is such a great idea. Reserve one of our Scimitar Horned Oryx packages and you’ll have a trophy that few people ever get to see, much less enjoy.
