Default Aoudad Success!

I asked the green screen for some info on aoudad hunts in West Texas a couple of years ago and a bunch of ya'll pointed at Cuz (Matt Cousins) as the to go guy to use as a aoudad guide.

This was something that my dad and I had been talking about doing for years after he retired and thought I'd go ahead and finally get something set up so we had a hunt lined up for Jan 2018.

First, I'd like to thank some of you guys for recommending Cuz. He was a great host and runs a top notch operation. He really worked hard to put us on some nice rams, even when we were dealing with the cold front that rolled in. Definitely recommend him for an aoudad trip.

I was able to take a 29' ram and my father had an opportunity on a 30' ram. I can say that we are now HOOKED. Beautiful country and this type of hunting is like nothing I've experienced before. If ya'll have been on the fence about doing an aoudad hunt, do it. You won't regret it! We're already talking about planning our next aoudad trip! Here's pictures of the ram and the kind of country you find them living in.

We didn't but we had an opportunity to glass what looked like indian paintings in one of them. Really cool seeing that. Quite a bit of them were in places that you'd have to go out of the way to get to them. We were too busy chasing aoudad at the time
