The name is as mystical as it’s looks - the Arabian Oryx is truly a magnificent animal to behold like the contented protege mythical unicorn of Aristotle. The Arabian oryx was nearly extinct in the early 1970’s, but thanks in large part to zoos and conservation efforts – as well as private preserves – the Arabian Oryx has bounced back and reintroduced into its natural desert habitat.
Created for desert living, the stunning brilliant white coat of the Arabian Oryx reflects the sun’s powerful rays to keep them cool. In the winter, the Arabian Oryx can erect its heavy coat to draw in heat. A unmistakeable shoulder bump, sleek black legs and face markings, tufted tail and tall horns makes this exotic antelope stand out in a crowd – and fits right in to the plains of Texas!
More About The Arabian Oryx:
The herbivorous Arabian Oryx antelope prefers to graze during the cooler hours of the early morning and late day on grass and thorny shrubs found across central south Texas. Notably, Arabian Oryx can survive for weeks without water by eating moisture rich vegetation.
Glassing the open landscapes for herds to find a suitable trophy is just the beginning. An overly sharp sense of smell, hearing and ability to break speeds up to 37 mph keeps hunting Arabian Oryx interesting - and hunters on their toes. Our seasoned hunting guides prefer use blinds or walk and stalk.
With well managed Arabian Oryx guided hunts, these spectacular exotic beasts now live up to 20 years both in, and out of captivity.
Roaming grasslands in mixed herds of 5-30 head, the Arabian Oryx antelope will dig shallow beds beneath shady trees and bushes - taking refuse during the heat of the day.
Both female and male Arabian Oryx taut straight and elongated, ridged horns growing 35” - 40” at maturity, with the female’s markedly thinner than it’s male counterpart. Our guided Arabian Oryx trophy hunts typically land in the 36” range.
Territorial by nature, the Arabian Oryx marks territory with its dung and uses its V-shaped horns to establish dominance within the herd. When threatened, the herd will stand sideways in effort to appear larger.
