If I remember right, the best place to shoot an aoudad is the upper shoulder area, a tad bit higher where you would normally shoot a deer. Its either a tad bit higher..or a tad bit lower than where you would shoot a deer. I think its higher though.

Here is a link to a good post that discusses all kinds of things which are helpful in hunting them. Aoudad
i agree

Re: Aoudad/Barbary Sheep???

WE have them on both ranches that i hunt on in west Texas. We are kill them off of the big ranch cause TPWL is going to put desert big horn back on it. but they won't if there is any aoudad around. We have been flying it and shooting them with 12GA with 00 buck. we have just about killed them all off of it. but we're going to let the ones on the smaller ranch be and maybe run hunt on them. i was up there this week and saw around a 100-150 with a bunch of the rams well over 30"

Well we don't flyem out in choppers with shotguns but there are some nice ones here in new mexico but you won't findem near a feeder either ide have to say its is the single hardest hunt in the southwest. Expect hours and hours of walking and glassing in the nastiest country you can imagine.
