These three exotic species were introduced to New Mexico over 25 years ago. They have both done exceptionally well. The oryx are on the White Sands Missile Range, and the ibex are in the Florida Mountains of Southern New Mexico. The Bison are on a large private ranch in New Mexico. Tags for both Oryx and Ibex are issued on a drawing basis. The deadline to apply for oryx is early February and ibex is mid April. Landowner permits can be obtained for the oryx at an additional cost of about $2500.00. The oryx hunts are held from September through March. The ibex, however, are October through February. The Oryx & Bison hunts are in gently rolling country with not a lot of physical ability required. The ibex, however, inhabit the Florida Mountains which are extremely rough and jagged requiring a lot of physical ability. We offer these hunts with both muzzleloader and rifle.
Rates: Oryx – 2 days - $1,250. Ibex – 7 Days - $3,500. Bison – 3 Day - $3,500.
Bison hunts are on private land requiring no state license.
