All of our Aoudad hunts are completely Free-Range and 100% Fair Chase!

It's actually called an Aoudad Sheep or referred to as a Barbery Sheep. But, it's not really a sheep! They have traits of both sheep and goats. Aoudad's are native to the Atlas Mountains of North Africa and were first brought into South Texas and New Mexico after WWII. This desert region is much like their native country and they did so well that more were brought in to different desert regions of Texas. Aoudad Sheep continue to thrive in south Texas and now occupy mountainous regions from West Texas to Del Rio to the Texas Panhandle.

Aoudads are tan with a large neck mane on the front and back of their necks. They have unusual tufts of hair, called chaps that encircle their front legs. The average male weighs about 200 pounds but can easily weigh over 300 lbs. The females typically weigh between 90-125 pounds. Both male and females Aoudads have horns which are very impressive with a wide base backward curl that goes upward and outward and the horns are rigid on the front surface. Male Aoudad horns range from 14" to 36" while female horns range from 12" to 27". These animals are tough and totally unpredictable! They're also pretty tough to glass!

Aoudad hunting is quite different from Whitetail Hunting. This hunt is a very challenging but fun hunt! Unlike whitetail hunts that we offer, this is a free-range hunt. The terrain is very rough and rocky so come prepared to hike while carrying all your gear. Aoudad's prefer steep walled canyons and rim rocked plateaus in some of the roughest country in Texas. Being in good physical condition is a key factor for a successful hunt.

Be prepared to shoot at least 200-300 yards. The Aoudad has tremendous eyesight which makes it almost impossible to get any closer than 200-300 yards. Their soft spongy hooves provide necessary traction to climb the steep and rocky terrain. They have the agility of a goat, making them very elusive in the rough, rocky hills where the hunt will take place. They have no fear of heights, have heavy muscular forequarters that give them the power to climb while their light rear-quarters give them the ability to spring effortlessly from ledge to ledge. These sheep are gregarious in nature and approaching hunters must use extreme caution. They are highly intelligent and resent any potential threat near their comfort zone. The slightest hint of movement on the hunter’s part may result in a “stare down”. Hunting Aoudad sheep demands the highest respect from sheep hunters.

Axis deer hunts in South Texas are by far the most sought after adventures in the exotic trophy hunting industry. Axis deer are easily identified by an orange coat with white spots similar to a whitetail fawn. All males and females have white patches on their throat while only mature males have antlers. Behavior of axis deer is nearly identical to native whitetail deer with majority of activity occurring at dusk and dawn. Herds are comprised of males and females of various ages throughout the year.

Axis deer or venison has the mildest flavor, and is very tender and finely textured. It contains less than 1% fat which means technically it is fat free. Almost all will agree that the Axis deer meat is considered by many to be the finest venison you’ll ever eat!

Blackbuck Antelope were one of the first exotic game animals introduced and bred on Texas ranches. Originally from India and Pakistan, they are a small antelope with bucks ranging from 70-125 pounds, they are one of the fastest animals in the world at about 55 mph. Males tend to be very territorial and their beautiful hides will become very black in the winter time. They have a very distinct spiral horn with anywhere from 3-5 twists and a straight-line measurement from 18” plus for a trophy. You will generally find them in open fields, trying to corral females as they enter their territory. The open Texas terrain also allows them to use their extreme speed to avoid predators. Blackbuck Antelope meat is very good, and they are a very challenging hunt.
