Any suggestions for a free-range Aoudad?

The Aoudad will have to be my "big horn sheep" so I was wondering if any of you Texas folks (or anyone from other states) could suggest some reputable outfitters? I've seen hunts from $2500 to $6000. Some have the 'trophy fee' with a $250 daily charge while others are a flat cost. I would prefer someone with a flat rate cost around $2500-$3000. That may be limiting be choice of outfitters but I just can't pay $4000, $5000, $6000 for an Aoudad.

Thanks!

Scott

    What do you mean by "free range"?

    If you mean on a really big ranch that has a high fence around it, that can be done fairly easily for your price. If you mean out on public land running loose amidst the thousands of truck hunters, I do not know if that is available in Texas. It can be done elsewhere, but as all public lands hunts, it is questionable what the success will be.

    We went to the Diamond A ranch for a pig hunt and my son shot this Aoudad. It is mostly animals coming to feeders while you sit in a blind. They might let you stalk hunt. They promised us we could if we came back. The animals are nervous creatures and very spooky. We did not know much about judging animal size and so after a long time of seeing little ones we shot this one which was the biggest we saw.

    Free Range just means that they are not in a high fence or have been purchased at the auction and turned loose. Either of those though is going to involve a high fence. If anyone needs a place to hunt let me know and I can point you in many directions.
