Re: Aoudad/Barbary Sheep???

There are a lot of places to hunt them in the western part of Texas. They are by far the most difficult Texas trophy to get IMO. They only have to drink water a couple times a year! They get most of their moisture through vegetation.

I dont know if there are any to hunt on public lands in Texas. I dont think hunting on public land happens much down here. Ive never heard of it anyway.

I have seen one really good post that talks about hunting aoudad. It could be helpful for Big Horn as well. Let me know if any of you are interested and I will go find it.

Took this one out of a non fenced ranch near San Antonio. There was a small heard grazing in an opening right before dark. This was the largest one there and he sure had some attitude toward the other rams. But a 210 Berger from a 30-378 tamed him down

Re: Aoudad/Barbary Sheep???

Hey Broz. You say you shot a "free range" aoudad near San Antonio??? As in.. a wild aoudad?

I hunt free range aoudad on a large ranch in West Texas. Pastures are low fence and 2,000 acres each with mountains and bluffs throughout. It has more cedar than you can shake a stick at. We usually have to shoot across a canyon or from hillside to hillside. The wind in these mountain ranges is crazy. Constantly changing. I have to leave the house and drive 3 hours on a ATV to get close to where they are at. Then walk for at least another hour. Once you shoot, the real work begins. Good luck packing a 350 lb aoudad up the cliff on your back.

I dont use guides or hunt high fenced wildlife. Just learned a lot from others and on my own. I am still learning. That never changes.

32" Aoudad
315 lbs.

Wow! That is an impressive looking ram. What are the specs of your rifle? Any other info on the hunt? Distance etc.
