How do I estimate the length of Oryx horns

Probably for Chad, since you are located near the hunt zone. My wife and I both drew for the once-in-a-lifetime Oryx hunt on White Sands in February 05. How do I estimate the length of a trophy set of horns? In studying the oryx pics, I am guessing that the horns must be more than 2x (3x would be nice)the length of the head... figuring the head at ~16". Because this is a onetime deal, I would like to insure that we don't take just any oryx.
Thanks for your time and advice.

look at the ears ,they are about 6" long look through your scope and add that lenght 1 on top of the other and this will give you a very close measurement.
