That looks like a nice
That looks like a nice trophy. Any more details about it - how was it taken, under what conditions?
Are you the outfitter for the website you linked or did you hunt there? What can you tell us about the outfit?
Thanks in advance.

I have to agree with hunting them on public land. The "ranch" hunt I have experienced isn't really a hunt. They're more like shooting fish in a barrel. They drove through the gate and immediately started looking at the animals they were going to "shoot". They rode around the "ranch" looking for the right animal to shoot. Once they picked out the animal they wanted, it was all over except pulling the trigger. Not hunting to me, but that was what they liked. I did enjoy looking at all the different animals on the "ranch" but I have no desire to shoot one in that way.

I don't know, so I am not
I don't know, so I am not disagreeing, just inquiring a little further. Is ranch hunting in TX really like shooting fish in a barrel? I've seen shows with TX ranches and they look huge and wild, no different from the non-ranch land. I imagine it varies, but are there big TX ranches where it isn't shooting fish in a barrel?
Still, I agree, I rather do it on public land. Just more satisfying even if you don't fill your tag.
We need to do a BGH Aoudad hunt!

Well, that's why I had ranch
Well, that's why I had ranch in qoutes. I was speaking to the place I've seen my friends hunt exotics. The place my friends went exotic hunting was only a couple hundred acres of fenced in pasture basically. This place was set up for exotic hunting only, no native animals inside the fence. You could almost see the other side through the trees.
I wasn't trying to say all ranches in TX are this way, just what I have experienced. I'm sure some of the expansive ranches in Tx could have some truly exciting, free-ranging exotic hunts.

I've never hunted Aoudad before and I drew a tag this year for Unit 30 down near Carlsbad. Does anyone know where to head around there to get started? Has anyone had any success in that area. I'll be heading down there with 2 other buds who also have tags for nearby units.

High fence aoudaddoesn't do the animal justice. Now a free range aoudad is where it's at it's basically a desert bighorn hunt for a fraction of the cost. If anyone has any aoudad questions at all contact me anytime. You can get my contact info on my website at www.barbdiamondoutfitters.com

Also the public land in Texas
Also the public land in Texas that hold aoudad is open desert hills and is archery only. And exotic hunting in Texas can range from shooting fish in a barrel(100-1000 acre ranch) to nearly like free range (5000-20,000 acre ranches) and there are alot of free range exotics scattered throughout the state. Axis, aoudad,nilgai, elk, sika,exotic sheep are the most common but you never know what may walk by.
