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.
