This sheep hunting video was taken on a very special free range aoudad hunt on a 22,000 acre ranch in West Texas. Located near Marfa, Texas in the famed Davis Mountains, there are VERY high numbers of good rams on this place, in fact most of the rams we saw were in the 30″ range. Barbary sheep hunting is great way to experience a sheep hunt without drawing a tag or paying a high price.
Watch as Mike White, Cory Glauner, and Marc Warnke from GOTHUNTS.com hunt for these special animals.

“Mike White me all excited one day and said, “Marc we got to go check out this ranch I just heard about. It’s got Aoudad on it. It’s got javelina, and big mule deer. We got to go check it out!” I said, “What’s the big deal about Aoudad?” He said, “Trust me Marc, you’ll see.”
When we arrived at the ranch we were very grateful for the shape we were in. It was big steep rugged country. The Aoudad were tough to find… They have to be the busiest animals I have ever hunted. We’d spot them at a mile, sneak in, and they’d feed 2000 yards from where they were before. It literally felt like we had to run them down.” -Marc Warnke
“As a bonus to this place there we javelina everywhere!” -Marc Warnke
“The ranch was 3 hours in on a dirt road and 15 miles from the Mexican border. Lucky us, we had to go check it out. We didn’t know what we were in for but we were game for an adventure. -Cory Glauner
“Man, I could easily become an Aoudad addict.” -Marc Warnke
“We were pulling my ram down the mountain. Was tough to get off the top; they are big animals. I fell off the end of this rock, bumped my butt, hit my shin, got back into camp and pulled down my sock after we had hiked out probably two miles and look at my battle wound.” -Marc Warnke
“Well I guess Mike was right. What an amazing animal to chase. Aoudads are one of the neatest animals I’ve ever hunted anywhere in the world.” -Cory Glauner
“The Davis Mountains in West Texas are beautiful, rugged, hardcore, right up our alley. I feel so blessed to have been able to chase these amazing animals.” -Marc Warnke
