any input on aoudad hunt! were do i start, looking for good quality animal , good hide,,,,
Tough critter to get with a bow anywhere. Getting a big ram is really, really tough with a bow in open range country. Heck, they are tough to get with a high-powered rifle!
Tough to hunt in the big desert country with a bow - but the most rewarding. If you can get any aoudad out there with a bow, you have earned your spurs...
Easier in the Hill Country of Texas but more of a sit in a stand and shoot one coming in to feed. Usually a high-fence type of deal. Totally different kind of hunt.
There are a lot of hunts in West Texas that are real hunts and a lot of fun. If you do some looking on the internet, there are a couple of guys that will let you do a hunt on a trespass fee basis - unguided.
New Mexico is another option. You can go in some areas on an OTC tag and others are draw only. You can go on public land DIY or guided but private land guided is probably the best bet.
Look up "mulie mike" on accurate reloading.com He has some free range hunts. There are some low fence hunts in the hill country as well. Check out texasbowhunter.com, they may have some leads. As a last resort, try some taxidermists, like Rhodes Brothers in Kerrville, Gary Broach is the owner, he may know of someone.
