Default Cold weather Audad!

My dad and I have been on the same lease for 7 years now, and only twice in that 7 years have we had pictures of Audad on trail camera, one of them being last week and they were only passing through so after going stir crazy in this house for a couple days I decided to head to the lease for an evening hike, I set out at the top of our pasture and got the wind right for a stalk and I only made it about half a mile before I came on 3 young rams! I managed to finally get within 60 yards of them with the howling wind and thick mesquite and the biggest one finally gave me a shot opportunity! Talk about a surprise, I was picturing a cold boring walk and now I'm dragging this guy back to the truck and sweating my butt off because I left the atv at home. My son has also really been wanting one but I made him stay at home because I thought he would get too cold so needless to say he's not real happy with me right now. I've heard several people saying they don't taste good but he's skinned and hanging so ill be finding out for myself in a few days might even have some audad heart fajitas tomorrow.

I think they’re delicious. I’ve made adobo red chili, stew, and sausage with them. Key is low and slow. Treat every cut like a roast and they’re really good.

Congrats on the kill!

I killed 2 last yr. one was 29.5 “ and other 26” both prob 250 pounds each. Meat is very pretty but even the back straps are tough! I ground with axis, pork butts, bacon and brisket. Made 150 pounds of burger!!! Best tasting burger I have made. Lol

Leave in ice chest and drain water like whitetail. We make burgers 70/30 with jalapeño bacon from HEB, and chicken fry. Eats just like whitetail. Everybody now that tells me you can’t eat them I ask them how many they have eaten. Response is “none” that’s just what they hear.

They are expanding pretty quickly in our area, I think the biggest populations are close to Possum Kingdom where they get very little if any hunting pressure.

We’ve had a few pictures of them west of Graham, and I know several others in the area who have pictures of them. We need to kill every one of them, imo. Not good for the native wildlife.

I broke it down into steak like pieces, trimmed it and cooked in butter garlic and onion on high till it was medium rare. It would have been better with some mesquite smoke but I wasn't feeling that motivated

What part are you in? I hunt in Santo and we have plenty of them there. We only eat the young Ewes. They're pretty good eating.

The big rams we give to landowner and he cubes it up, boils it, mixes it with rice and feeds his dogs for a week.
