Default Adventure Begins!

My wife and I are headed north to meet up with J-J Matt to see about getting her a scimitar horned oryx. We left Conroe last night for a stop at my Dad's in McKinney and drop off our son. We are currently stopped at a cool little joint in Henrietta called Bull Malarkey's for lunch. We should hit the ranch about 3. We'll see how the cell signal is and I'll run as live as possible.

Good luck. Matt will definitely put the work in to get your wife an opportunity. Wife and I went last September after a cow elk. Those things are fun to hunt. We chased them for a couple days and couldn’t get a shot comfortable enough for my wife. But it was fun as heck in some beautiful country. We ended up getting a red deer hind that my wife and I were more than happy with and they are delicious.

Well, after several close calls this evening, Matt was able to get my wife to close the deal. 150yd shot quartering away with her 7mm-08 and he was done.

I shot an old worn out bull last year and I was surprised by how good the meat was. I was thinking it would be tough and gamey so I had alot of it made into snack sticks, but next time most of it will be made into steaks.

Spent the day chasing gemsbok. After my wife got her oryx she gave me the green light on a gemsbok, one of my bucket list animals.

Congrats to your wife and good luck with a Gemsbok. I was fortunate enough to take one in December, and itís some of the best meat Iíve cooked. Itís a hit at my house.

What a crazy day! After a long day of chasing the gemsbok from dawn til dark yesterday, we were able to get on them pretty quick this morning. However, I flubbed the shot hitting him low and back. We spent the next several hours trying to get back on him for a follow up shot. I was finally able to get a 2nd shot into him and anchored him. I can't think Matt and Erin enough for their hospitality and the amount of work we put in to get these 2 animals down.
