What an amazing animal to chase. Aoudads are one of the neatest animals I’ve ever hunted anywhere in the world. The Davis Mountains in West Texas are beautiful, rugged, hardcore, right up our alley. I feel so blessed to have been able to chase these amazing animals.
This sheep hunting video was taken on a very special free range aoudad hunt on a 22,000 acre ranch in West Texas. Located near Marfa, Texas in the famed Davis Mountains, there are VERY high numbers of good rams on this place, in fact most of the rams we saw were in the 30 inch range. Aoudad hunting is great way to experience a sheep hunt without a gigantic price tag or drawing a tag. Watch as the guys from OUTDOORS INTERNATIONAL hunt for these special animals.
Aoudad hunting is within reach for almost every hunter.
Mike White me all excited one day and said, “we got to go check out this ranch I just heard about. It’s got free range aoudad on it. It’s got javelina, and big mule deer. We got to go check it out!” When we arrived at the ranch we were very grateful for being in shape. It was big steep rugged country. The aoudad were tough to find… They have to be the busiest animals I have ever hunted. We’d spot them at a mile, sneak in, and they’d feed 2,000 yards from where they were before. It literally felt like we had to run them down.
The ranch was three hours in on a dirt road and 15 miles from the Mexican border. Lucky us, we had to go check it out. We didn’t know what we were in for but we were game for an adventure.
