Description

These hunts take place in the Mountains of West Texas. Although you might cover a lot of ground on 4 wheelers, This hunt can still be physically demanding and will be to your advantage to be in good physical shape. This is not a high fenced hunt over water, this a true free range hunt and these sheep live in "Sheep Country"! We hunt elevations of 4500-6500 feet on some rugged rocky terrain in a typical desert habitat. With temperatures ranging from 20 degrees to 85 degrees. Shots will average between 150 to 350 yards, although terrian can cause some shots to be 400+ yards. These are tough animals and we recommend at least a 6mm Caliber Rifle. These are free ranging sheep that have been wild in this area since the 1940's with outstanding genetics for large sheep. Aoudad or Barbary Sheep are native to the Desert Mountains in the Sahara region of northern Africa. In 1924, aoudad were released on the Hearst Ranch-mostly unfenced-in San Luis Obispo County, California, and have since populated nearby areas, where they have been hunted without legal protection. They were introduced in 1950 in the Canadian River Canyon in New Mexico by the state game department, with hunting by drawn permit. Some of these animals have wandered across the Southwestern portion of the United States and as far as Colorado and Oklahoma. Abundant in the wilds of Texas, as a result of state-sponsored releases, also elsewhere from private releases. The aoudad is a superb game animal, exceptionally challenging to hunt.
