Day One

Cory Glauner and some of the OI Team, along with our client Tom Skelly had a blast in  Texas aoudad hunting on a 25,000 acre ranch in the Davis Mountains of West Texas. They went four-for-four in four days of action packed Texas aoudad hunting (with a few Javelina thrown in)!

Up early to a beautiful Texas sunrise.

Just a little more than an hour into the hunt, Cory took a great ram after a short stalk with little cover and a 325 yard shot. Hit well, the ram ran about 40 yards and went down. What a way to start the hunt!

This pic was taken just before the shot. If you click on it, you will see the rams.

Never take for granted what we are able to do as hunters. What a great experience.

Day Two

Just before dark Cory spotted three aoudads feeding with one good ram in the group, that ended up measuring 29 1/4 inches.

While they were taking pictures, Cory was able to catch these two baby javelina. They were feisty little buggers... and cute. They took a few pics of them and turned them loose.

Day Three

Day three was all about OI client Tom Skelly. After missing a shot at a good ram earlier, he decided to take this management ewe.

Cory almost caught this lamb (are you seeing a theme here), but it got away from him... but not before he could get this cool picture.

Day Four

Mike White, our Alberta deer hunting outfitter, and Cory were hunting together and after a disappointing LONG morning hike, they only had one evening hunt left. Luckily they spotted this ram and made a great stalk and a LOOOONG shot to put him down… but not for keeps. Five shots later, a great ram was his….maybe he’ll trade us for one of his trophy Alberta mule deer hunts now… LOL

Aoudad hunting involves alot of glassing... and they blend in well.

Cory got 20 yards from Mikes ram before Mike shot it... at approximately 450 yards. Don't ask... long story.

“Aoudad are tough!!! It took six shots, most of them good to put my ram down. The hunt of a lifetime.” ~Mike White

What an awesome hunt. Mike’s AWESOME ram measures 32 3/4 inches! Texas aoudad hunting was everything I expected it to be. Challenging. Fun. Action Packed. Can’t wait to do it again! Now we’re going to go scout a new nilgai hunting outfitter.

Our hunt was excellent.

We saw bucks every day along with all other sorts of wildlife. Mountain goats, bears, and foxes were common sights. Fishing and crabbing was special bonus. The food was excellent, the crew was amazing. Outdoors International did a great job of finding exactly what we were looking for.

What an amazing experience!

The hunting lodge was out of this world!, Rooms, food and the scenery were all A+. Our guide was exceptional and had us on Shiras moose all five days. We saw over 30 total with at least 10 bulls. They had a plan for everything including taxidermy and game processing.
