I spent this past weekend hunting Addax with some good friends on a ranch southeast of San Antonio.....

To my surprise, the Addax on this ranch were UNBELIEVABLY skittish.....and the hunt ended up being one of the most challenging of my life. I've been to at least a half dozen different properties with Addax, and none of them were anywhere near as wild as these were.

I ended up taking a nice mature bull the last morning of the hunt. It was one of the most rewarding and enjoyable hunts I've ever had (even though it was BRUTALLY hot and humid the entire time). Here are the results....hope yall enjoy.

Here is my bull as he fell....

I shot him with a .300 WSM using 180 gr. Winchester XP3 ammo.

Rought measurement put him at 34"-35".....but I don't really care. He is a big, heavy bull.....and he's very symetrical, which is more important to me. He will make a handsome mount with the dark forehead.

Very nice! I spent the weekend hunting Axis up near Rocksprings. It was overcast and low 70s most of the time! Thought I'd died and gone to heaven...

Sweet!!!



Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Nice bull!



A hunt based on only trophies being taken falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be,time to commune with your inner soul as you share the outdoors with the birds,animals, and fish that live there. -Fred Bear
