December-February: Please call for exact dates.
The rugged rim rock canyons and mountains of this 25,000 acre private ranch provide the perfect environment for aoudad sheep to flourish both in quantity and trophy quality. Aouadad have been present in this portion of Texas since the mid 1950’s and are entirely free ranging. Mature rams measuring 28+ inches with solid mass will be targeted on these hunts.
Hunts here can be conducted from the road system found on the ranch where you will utilize 4X4 pickups or UTV’s to travel from one glassing point to another. As with any sheep hunt, the bulk of your day will be spent scouring the landscape with optics to locate animals. For those looking to test themselves physically you may also strap on your pack and leave the vehicle prior to daylight and hike into remote country that are not accessible to motorized vehicles. This style of hunt will be physically demanding but will offer that quintessential sheep hunting experience that is so valued at a fraction of the price when compared to desert sheep hunting.
Lodging for this hunt will come by way of a ranch house with bunkhouse style accommodations located within the hunting area. Breakfast will be available each morning and home cooked meals will be served at night with lunches typically being taken to the field in coolers.
Aoudad are classified as a non-game species in Texas allowing for a year round season. Hunts are primarily conducted in the months of November through February making this the perfect option to extend your hunting season. From the seasoned sheep hunter to the Midwestern whitetail hunter looking for a new challenge, the pursuit of aoudad should be on almost everyone’s bucket list.
