About Aoudads

Texas is home to more aoudad sheep, or what some people refer to as Barbary sheep, than their native North Africa. Aoudads are exceptionally sporty animals, combining wary nature with tough physical hardiness likened to a cape buffalo. If you are truly interested in a great, challenging and rewarding experience, our free-range aoudad sheep hunts may be your ticket.


Upcoming Hunts

Aoudad Hunt

October - March
3 days $1000.00/Gun



  Aoudads were originally released into the Texas wilds in the 1950’s. Releases took place in the Northwestern Panhandle region, as well as the Trans-Pecos of far West Texas. Technically, they are not considered a pure sheep but actually have morphological and biological features of both a sheep and a goat. Mature males will have a live weight of up to 275 pounds, and both males and females grow horns, but male’s horns grow considerably larger. A respectable free range aoudad trophy will sport horns in excess of 27”, and anything over 30” is considered exceptionally good. Aoudads have a unique pelage characterized by a solid color throughout their body which is sandy color and blends exceptionally well with their environment. Additionally, they have a striking long beard which runs from their throat all the way down to their chest, and they also sport long hair as chaps on their front legs, thus they make impressive life-size or half-size mounts.
