Default Big Aoudad down! (Wife's kill)

Wife and I loaded up and headed to the family land just north of Leakey for the week.

Sunday I saw a several ewes in a bowl on the back of the property. Monday morning her brother and I saw several more with a few small rams.

That afternoon her and I eased in there and set up. I was looking high on the rim rock glassing and when I came off the glass I saw him standing across the bowl from us under some oaks at 87.5 yards.

Got her on the gun and she smoked him with the creedmoor it was a perfect heart shot! He ran about 10 yards and dove down into a old creek bed/crevice where we found him piled up.

She's been having good and bad days. Still not in the clear but leaning towards getting better.
