I have a heard of 16 +- (2) oryx left on the ranch. They haven't been hunted since cities permit came into affect. I spent sometime at the ranch the other weekend with binos and spotting scope. I saw bulls and cows. Here's my question I haven't seen but one calf in the last year and I don't think it made it. What would be a reasonable explanation as to why I'm not seeing any calves. My bulls are between 3-5 yrs, maybe one or two being older. I did notice they cows with calves will go into hiding sometimes but not a single oryx less than 1-2 yrs can be found on the ranch?

Thanks

I don't know if this helps, but a friend had low fawn production on his ranch. He was feeding range cubes containing cotton seed meal. P&W told him that it could act as a contraceptive. capt david

Are there sheep around? We had this oryx next door.... always with the sheep. Once the sheep were gone the babies started coming.

I would be a bit surprised that yotes are getting ALL the calfs. We've lost a couple addax to yotes, but it's been rare, and usually after they are about 3-4 months old and the moms are less protective.

You have one bull that's obviously dominant? He may be a dud but still carrying thru with the breeding and keeping the other bulls off the females. I would consider removing what you think is the dominant bull and bringing a new one in to shake things up a bit.

Is it possible that your oryx have become too closely related?

I stayed at a Holiday Inn last night...
