Hunting Texas Barbary Sheep
The introduction of Aoudad Sheep to Texas have been quite successful.
The Aoudads ability to scale steep terrain has been well documented by many a hunter giving them the upper hand to their survival in these dry, harsh conditions consisting of mountains or large rock outcroppings of Texas.
Aoudad (Barbary Sheep) will often escape to higher ground when threatened. They have split hooves with soft center pads and hard-rimmed edges that can grip any ledge. They can scamper up sheer cliffs and are always close to a vertical escape. The life span of an Aoudad is 10-15 years.
Aoudad Sheep can be identified by the long tufts of hair running the length of their chest and forelegs, referred to as “chaps” Aoudad have a tan to rich sandy brown coat that helps conceal them. The Aoudad Sheep - Barbary Sheep have a deep chest with seemingly small hindquarters - giving it a stocky muscular appearance.
Males and females both have horns, with the females’ being much shorter and with less mass than an adult male – similar to that of a young male.
Average weights of a male ram is around 200 lbs., but can exceed 300 lbs., while females typically weigh in at 100-120 lbs.
