Archery Hunting Oryx in New Mexico: A Guide's Perspective

Embarking on an archery hunt for oryx in New Mexico presents one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences in big game hunting. Known for their keen senses and elusive nature, oryx can test the skills of even the most seasoned hunters. With PCO, you gain access to a guided service on 360,000 acres of private land with a large oryx population that allows 1-3 stalks a day.

The Challenge

Oryx, with their sharp senses comparable to those of pronghorn antelope and Coues deer, thrive in New Mexico's desert landscape—from flat, open terrains to areas thick with mesquite and rolling hills. These conditions, coupled with the limited hunting days available, create a challenging scenario for archery hunting. Even rifle hunts prove tough and the complexity increases significantly when the weapon of choice is a bow.

The Hunt

Archery hunting oryx requires patience, precision, and a lot of work. At PCO, we provide expert guidance rooted in extensive knowledge and experience on the ranch. The typical hunt involves careful stalking and positioning, often in less than ideal weather conditions that can spread the oryx across a wider range. Cold, windy days might see the oryx hidden in small draws or behind tall, thick brush, blending seamlessly into their surroundings.

A Memorable Experience

Despite the difficulties, the reward of hunting oryx with a bow is unparalleled. These magnificent creatures not only provide a thrilling chase but also yield some of the best big game meat you'll ever taste. The hunts offer more than just the pursuit of game; they are a complete immersion into the rugged beauty of New Mexico's landscapes and the thrill of tradition of bow hunting.
