Free Range Aoudad Hunting in West Texas
This is a great free range aoudad hunt!
Aoudad hunting is much like hunting Rocky Mountain or Desert Bighorn. Patience is a virtue, as long periods of glassing is required to spot sheep that blend in amazingly well with their surroundings. Guides will spend as much time as necessary locating a mature ram. Once a good ram is spotted, it requires a successful, well planned stalk to get within shooting range.
While archery hunting is possible, and we did get within bow range of a few sheep bowhunting for aoudad is tough. You will be faced with situation to either shoot long distance, or a long stalk to shorten the distance. The problem with the second option is if you lose sight of your ram while trying to get closer, he may have naturally moved off as they move often.
- Over the Counter. NO DRAW REQUIRED!
- Best value in the sheep hunting world
- Spot and stalk at it’s best
- November through February
- High success rates on trophy rams
A rugged, rocky-outcropping perfectly conceals the aoudad rams, while the mountainous desert landscape and fluctuating wind and temperature variations provide the hunter with little assistance in their pursuit.
We hunted this ranch a few years ago, and even though we weren’t trophy hunting, we shot three rams in four days. They measured 32 3/4″, 31 1/2″, and 29 1/4″! I don’t know anywhere that you can beat that kind of success. It is one of the best fair chase hunts in the U.S. Experienced guides will lead clients on a true “sheep hunt.”
