    NM Barbary Sheep

    Sitting here waiting for the NM results to come out has me going crazy, thought I'd share a few pics of our first "sheep" hunt. I drew a couple tags in NM last season, but was super excited about hunting barbary for the first time. Unfortunately its a little ways away, and of course as things go, I only managed one scouting trip. Luckily that scouting trip went great, and me and my buddy were able to glass up multiple groups of sheep, and some good looking rams. The hunt came before we knew it, so me, my dad, and grandpa loaded up the trucks and left Thursday after work for sheep country. Getting in late that night, we slept as good as we could in the cold, howling wind. That morning found us glassing some awesome country, but no sheep spotted. We spent the next day and a half maneuvering around other hunters and trying to find some sheep that were not already being shot at. We later ran into a super nice couple that had harvested a great ram, and they gave us some pointers on where to look and how to best hunt these animals. That afternoon, me and my dad hiked back into a far canyon where we thought we could get away from other hunters. Just as we got there, I glassed up two rams on the far ridge. After closing the gap a little more, we found them again and I set up for a shot at around 500 yards. The first shot felt great, but was a miss. Still not sure what happened, whether it was the wind or I just pulled it. Luckily they ran to our left and even with a little too much adrenaline, I was able to connect. As we climbed to find our ram, we found him wedged between some giant boulders. The country these things live in is amazing, and they can cover ground in 10 seconds that takes us hours to cross. He's not a giant ram, but I couldn't of been happier to kill one and now can't wait to hunt them in the future. How we found him in the rocks My first barbary. The packout was probably the most memorable part of the whole trip, coming down those cliffs in the dark was probably not the smartest thing in the world, but we eventually made it back to the truck around midnight and ended a hunt that I'll never forget. Here's a short video of the hunt for those interested:

    3 for 3, West Texas Aoudad

    I'm pretty late in posting this as I've just had a lot going on since this hunt but wanted to share it with you all. Back in October Chef, my cousin John, and myself headed over to West Texas to chase Aoudad. We had some pretty rough weather to start things out but it turned out to be a great trip. Chef and I took our biggest rams so far and John took another big ram. For those of you waiting to draw that elusive big horn tag I highly recommend chasing Barbary Sheep to scratch the itch. Be careful though as it is definitely addicting. Another video I put together. https://vimeo.com/151197634

    Blown away! 2015 Aoudad done!

    The time that I always love came early to me...getting a trophy back from the taxidermist and reliving the hunt! Scott Kendrix (Global Destinations Artistry Inc) not only completed my mount in a super short less then five months time he blew me away with the masterpiece he created. Far and away exceeding my expectations. I think the pictures speak for themselves and I could not be happier. I'm building a custom wood base for the pedestal and will update this post when that is completed but I couldn't wait to share this. Let me know your thoughts.

    Free Range Aoudad Hunt Part II

    The second part of our West Texas Aoudad hunt was crazy difficult that started out with a freak snow storm that closed the freeway for several hours and dumped a bunch of snow that made traveling extremely slow. We arrived very late and proceeded to set up camp in the rain. After putting on close to 30 grueling miles over the next three days we finally caught up to some sheep. We weren't able to locate any of the monsters I was holding out for but just watching the heard was a great experience. That evening before we bailed off the mountain we debated packing it up and heading home. We had hunted hard and had a great time but were worn out, thankfully after a few very supportive texts from my wife I came to my senses and decided to give it one more day. The next morning we spotted a lone ram across the canyon and it was game on! After some long range shooting and some cat and mouse I had my last day trophy. Unfortunately we did not get the shot on video as we were focused on putting the ram on the ground and given the long distances we did not want to take our eyes off of him to switch over to the camera. As luck would have it when we were packing my ram off the mountain and almost back to camp we jumped a band of six big rams and one of them was the exact stud I had been holding out for, it was bitter sweet but awesome to know he's still roaming those hills. Just like part 1 I owe a huge thank you to Scott Kendrix, Zac Griffith, and Mike McKinny for allowing us to hunt these magnificent creatures in some of the most beautiful country you can imagine. For anyone that has a desire to hunt sheep and can't wait for the elusive tag I would highly recommend getting hooked up on an aoudad hunt but be warned they are extremely addicting.

    Free Range Aoudad Hunt

    After watching the video of Zac (ADDICT) and Scott's (Kilimanjaro) Aoudad hunt last year I immediately contacted Scott to find out how I could get in on one of my own. Scott got myself and my cousin John hooked up with a couple tags and plans started to come together. Before I knew it the time had come and we were off and running after a quick stop to help my father get his mule deer. We made the long drive and arrived in time to get camp set up and a little glassing done before dark. We were able to spot a stud ram that left us with some serious excitement that made for a sleepless night. After a hike mostly in the dark to our glassing point, we got set up and by the end of the first day we had one tag filled. The weather took a turn for the worst and we ended up getting rained in for almost three days. We saw some beautifully rugged country and a couple of huge rams. Despite the weather this was an awesome trip that definitely makes you appreciate sheep hunting and the beauty of West Texas. I wasn't able to put my hands on a ram of my own this time but I will be making a return in the near future to hopefully complete part 2 of our adventure. I can't thank Scott enough for helping make this hunt happen, he went above and beyond in making sure we had and will have a successful hunt. I put together this video that tells the story better than I can describe so I hope you enjoy it. https://vimeo.com/111463470 John's Ram
