NM Kid, what hunt do you have, or area, they are a hard animal to bring down, you must hit the heart, my oryx ,was a bull, bulls have thick rings on low part of the horns, it had 41", weight was 476# dressed, note 5 hits with a 7mag, any one of those hits would have down a big bull elk, and I got 6 of those, they say a 243, can being them down if you hit the heart.critr, in NM, you can take the skin, with proof of sex, to keep the meat is a grey area, I did not like the meat, not even the cat fish like it as bait.
