Well guys after watching the hunting channel a few days at work i decided to give the boat and rods a break!
Got my buddy to go with me on this and this is how it planned out.
We booked with Cherokee Ranch in Rocksprings Tx and we got there on monday evening. I was after Eland and my buddy was chasing Red Stag. That evening we set out ad found an Eland but not to my liking and saw a few Weldebeest and a herd of Oryx.
Well the next morning we headed out in search of what we were after and again saw them **** wildebeest and right then and there i changed my mind and started looking at this beautiful animal and started looking for a good bull.
Well finally i found the one and he stood at 210 yards board side and i let the 300 weatherby pound him like a sledgehammer!.. he ran about 50 yards and dropped.
After pics and all the good stuff i had spotted a real nice oryx and i told my about it, i knew he was over 40” and with that info my buddy changed his mind since he hadnt seen but one small Red Stag.
After lunch we took off in search of this animal and my buddy asked me to tag along since i knew which one it was out of like 40 of them, it took about 2.5 hrs of stalking them but we finally found him at 80 yrds broadside and he let the old 30-06 roar and down he went!
The oryx measured at 40.75”
Well after that my buddy decided he wanted an Axis buck and that evening he made it happen on a 600 yrd stalk and he got himself one.
We had a great time hunting in the heat but we had fun at the same time!!!!
I gotta say that hunting with my rifle was pretty cool since I hadn’t picked one up like in 8-10 yrs lol.
