Aoudad Sheep Hunting

Reserve Your Hunt
Texas Hunt Lodge will put you on a Trophy Aoudad Sheep you'll be proud to hang on the wall. Year round, we offer hunts for awesome Trophy Aoudad Rams, otherwise known as Barbary Sheep. There are no seasonal restrictions on hunting the Barbary Sheep in Texas, which makes it a suitable trophy year round.

We typically let our hunters choose the method of hunting Trophy Aoudad Sheep that they prefer. Hunters of Trophy Aoudad Sheep can choose the Spot and Stalk method, Rifle Hunting, Black Powder, Safari Style Hunting, as well as hunting from a Blind. We can accommodate hunters of any age and experience level, as well as hunters which have physical disabilities.

The Aoudad Rams that we hunt are all trophy class, and the average Aoudad Sheep hunt is 3 days. The Aoudad Sheep we harvest average 30 inch horns with some Aoudad Rams going upwards of 35 inches, very large trophy Aoudad.  The Aoudad Hunt requires patience as they are one of the most elusive animals to hunt in the Texas Hill Country.

The Aoudad Sheep, also known as Barbary sheep or Aoudad Goat, is native to the Desert Mountains of the Sahara region, but is also now quite plentiful on Exotic Game ranches in Texas and New Mexico.  Introduction of Aoudad into the wild in the US, by private sources, first took place in Llano and Kerr counties of Texas in the early 1950's

Both male and female Aoudad Sheep have large horns that make for great trophies.  Aoudad Sheep Mounts are usually done with the shoulders and front legs in tact to show the beautiful flowing mane, also known as "chaps".  Both male and female Aoudad are sandy brown in color and weigh anywhere from 60 lbs to 350 lbs.  The shoulder height is between 2.5-3.7 feet and their length is between 4 and 5.5 feet.

The meat of an old Aoudad ram is tough and not considered tasty.  However, as with most sheep, the meat from the Aoudad females and the Aoudad young is quite tasty if prepared correctly.



Below are some of the trophies taken from our Aoudad Sheep hunts over the years.
