    @MaxP you talk about your bovine bash here in my neck of the woods South Texas. Have you ever hunted at the Texas Hunt Lodge near Ingram Texas? That's where I'm looking at my Kudu hunt.

    I have not. Are they offering a good deal? Where we do the Bovine Bash, the proprietor is able to get pretty much anything that walks, crawls or flies if you want to talk to him. Can't hurt.

    Initial pricing is 17k for kudu. Don't know if that's considered a "good" deal.

    I inquired and that is about the right cost for a trophy-level animal. Of course for a lesser animal you can get it cheaper.

    The show is now also on RecoilTV's website and Kahr Arms has posted the first episode on their YouTube channel - for those with Amazon Prime.

    Perhaps so, but it still won't be a kudu :D

    My 7.5" bbl 6 shot SRH in 480 Ruger is a "Big Iron", and is good choice for taking down large game with the right loads, mine has only taken down paper and cans. ;)

    You have them on a national forest? Are they escapees, or being grazed by a permittee? Or are you talking about a game farm surrounded or near national forest ground?

    Who did those Bisley grips? I have a BFR in 460 (and just sold another in 450 Marlin) and the "plowshare" grips on them are terrible.

    Between 1969 and 1977, 95 oryx were released on White Sands Missile Range and the surrounding areas. Wild oryx were brought from the Kalahari Desert in Africa to an experimental range at Red Rock, New Mexico. Federal law prohibits introducing wild animals from other countries into the wild, so offspring were obtained from these first oryx to introduce onto the missile range.

    There are thousands of oryx in residence on the missile range today. Annual hunts for the oryx began in 1974 and continue to this day to help control and stabilize the population. Because the oryx is not native to this country, the National Park Service (NPS) is concerned about how this animal affects the native plants and animals of White Sands National Monument. In 1996, the NPS erected a 67-mile (108 km) boundary fence to prevent the oryx from entering the monument.

    Very interesting and thank you for the education on this subject. I’m a professional forester so hearing about this really sparked my interest.

    I had no idea.

    Back to business.
