Scimitar-Horned Oryx Hunting Information
If you are looking for Texas Scimitar-Horned Oryx hunting, Heart A Ranch is the perfect spot. These creatures are a member of the antelope family and are unique and beautiful. They have a white body with an area of tan on the neck and chest along with a spot on the nose and potential stripe down the back. Both males and females boast a pair of long, slender whipped-back horns that can exceed 40 inches in length. Weighing approximately 300-400 pounds, Scimitars are known to be the best-tasting exotic.
They originated from North Africa and are extinct in the wild. Scimitars are gregarious in nature preferring large open areas. They can go for months at a time without water and do not require large amounts of protein. Their gestation period can range from 8-10 months with birthing seasons peaking in October and March. Hunting of the Scimitar-Horned Oryx may soon require an additional permit.
