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. 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.
After researching Mid Asian Ibex hunting in Kyrgyzstan for almost a year, my wife Maria and I set up our hunt through Outdoors International with the outfitter we wanted to use in Kyrgyzstan. Over the next six months, OI was very helpful in assisting to get all of the logistics in order. This can be a part of any International hunt that is challenging and not all that much fun-gun permits, travel itineraries, money transfers, ect.
People don’t know what they are missing out on. Just because Kyrgyzstan end in “stan” doesn’t mean you wont make it back alive. An unbelievable experience of a lifetime!
I couldn’t believe in less than seven days I had harvested a dall sheep and a grizzly bear, it was a trip of a life time! I cant say enough about how impressed I was with this Outfitter. From the knowledge of the outdoors to how my made my time in camp with him very memorable.
I’ve been on a lot of hunts over the past years, and can honestly say this was one of my best trips to date! With animals in every direction, the hardest decision was figuring out which Goat we were going after. That is a true rarity these days. I can’t wait to go back to hunt with this outfit!

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.”
