Free range trophy Aoudad Sheep hunts
High quality Aoudad Sheep hunts in the Chinati mountains. This is a real sheep hunt! Think of a desert bighorn experience. There are no roads that gain elevation. The genetics in this mountain range are the best in the world. We offer 4 day or 5 day hunts.
The 5 day hunts are for those hunters that want more of a legitimate sheep hunting experience...and these hunts will usually include a night or two up on the mountain, to certainly allow a guy to be very selective on rams we hunt. This hunt is perfect for clients that appreciate a legitimate mountain sheep hunt. It can be as physical as most desert bighorn hunts. The rams we hunt are wild free range rams in big mountains.
We prefer to only book 2x1 hunts but will accommodate a 1x1 hunt at full price if necessary. Our very high success rates are the same to date for either hunt.
