Free-Range Aoudad "Barbary" Sheep Hunt
Donor: Hunter Ross, Desert Safaris

Indigenous to the Atlas Mountains and Barbary Coast of Northern Africa, aoudad sheep, commonly referred to as Barbary sheep, were introduced into the northern Panhandle and Trans-Pecos mountain regions of Texas in the late 1950's in an effort to establish a new big game hunting opportunity. Aoudad sheep are well adapted as both a browser and grazer to the arid and remote regions of the state. They have since flourished from a few dozen animals during their release period to well over 25,000 free ranging animals in western Texas alone

With over 315,000 acres of private ranches leased exclusively for facilitation of our sheep hunts, we have access to the most elite free range aoudad sheep habitat in Texas to offer our hunting clients. These six free-range ranches are located in Jeff Davis, Presidio and Brewster counties of west Texas and situated in the Chinati and Davis mountain ranges. Hunts are based from well-appointed lodges with all modern amenities located on site in extremely scenic settings. Elevations varying from 4,000 to 7,500 feet make these hunts a true sheep hunter’s delight and possibly one of the best sheep hunting values found on the hunting market today. We have had countless clients who have accomplished the grand slam of North America and have commented that our aoudad sheep hunts rival any of these bighorn species. Free-range aoudad sheep hunting is within grasp of most clients’ budgets, and it gives the gratification of most other regional or international sheep hunts offered in today's hunting environment.
