A keen sense of smell, incredible hearing, and a coat that perfectly matches their surrounding makes Texas aoudad hunts one of the most challenging hunts out there.
Texas aoudad hunts are much like hunting Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep or Desert bighorns.
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.

Texas aoudad hunts can be done with any weapon you choose. While archery hunting is possible, and an experienced bowhunter can get within bow range, 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.
