Norma's Bondstrike put the aoudad
down hard in it tracks before it could take a single step.
I, my brother and I went to Southwest Texas and harvested a pair of great aoudad
, originated in the harsh, unforgiving mountains of northern Africa in such exotic locales as Algeria, Egypt Tunisia, Mauritania, Morocco, and Chad.
For those of us who don't have the points or the savings to hunt native sheep, aoudad
in the rugged desert country of Texas offer an affordable alternative to mountain sheep hunts.
The species and groups of species observed in this category were feral hog; deer; elk; aoudad
; coyote; bobcat; cattle (Bos taurus); and horses and mules, with the latter two prey animals being grouped together as equines (Equus spp.).
There are some species of exotics which can be hunted in the off-season, such as blackbuck antelope, axis deer and aoudad
sheep for example.
These were part of the zoo's Africa area, which is also home to the aoudad
, a wild North African sheep with large, curved horns and hair growing from its throat to its knees.
Axis deer are among many "exotic" species commonly hunted in Texas (a lengthy list of non native animals such as blackbuck antelope, fallow deer, red stag and aoudad
), and much of that hunting occurs within the confines of a high fence.

Red deer (Cervus elaphus) and roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) are the most common wild ruminants in Spain; mouflon (Ovis aries), fallow deer (Damadama), and aoudad
(Ammotragus lervia) are less common (11).
The North African aoudad
, blackbuck antelopes, three breeds of sheep and wild boar are available all year round.
The fauna of these areas includes goats (Capra hircus), Barbary sheep or aoudad
(Ammotragus lervia), and antelopes such as the gazelles (Gazella), addax (Addax nasomaculatus), oryx (Oryx), dik-diks (Madoqua), cobs (Kobus kob), kudus (Tragelaphus strepsiceros, T.
The last time I was in these parts, I chased aoudad
up its mountainous landscape.
Very small natural populations of aoudad
or barbary sheep remained in northern Algeria.
With it I dropped an old aoudad
ram with one shot at 641 yards; it's become my go-to long-distance bullet.
