Hunting Aoudad (Barbary Sheep)
You know. I have actually taken an African animal. Just did it in Texas though. :D I know they aren't hunted much in their native lands from my understanding, but know that they are hunted a lot in TX and NM.
I'm talking about Aoudad, or Barbary Sheep, or as a friend says; "souped-up range maggot" :eek:
I shot this aoudad in September of 2007 at the YO Ranch just outside of Kerrville, TX. I shot it at last light so that's why the pic is taken in the dark. It measured 26". This was a target of opportunity. I was actually there for a sika hunt and decided to try for the aoudad as we saw the same group the night before. We did the classic spot and stalk on this guy and let me tell you, it was EXCITING!!!!!
Anyway, just thought I'd share. :)
