i wish you luck on your upcoming hunt down here. get ready for some heat.
in texas, exotics are not covered under state wildlife laws, other than having to have a valid hunting license while hunting. so an owner, himself or via instructions to his guides, can do pretty much what he wants with "his" exotics, whether it seems right or not. i felt sorry for the aoudad, but i was not hunting it, i was just along for the dog training as i was already there. i do not agree with how it was done, but that means little.
i had the bullet fragment weighed. it was 130.4 grains, so less than half of the original. i will probably have the brass reloaded with barnes tlc bullets in the future.
