Barbary Sheep (Aoudad)

Aoudad or Barbary sheep:

nm-barbary-sheepAoudad or Barbary sheep were first introduced to New Mexico in the 1960’s on the McKnight Ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Since that time these rugged adaptive animals have thrived and expanded as a great sport animal here in New Mexico. Barbary sheep were hunted with over the counter tags until 2010 when the State of New Mexico Game and Fish added them to the list of sport animals residents and non-residents need to draw tags for. However, like elk and mule deer in New Mexico, hunters can still buy over the counter licenses that allow them to hunt on private deeded lands in the State for Barbary sheep. We offer both public land sheep hunts and private land hunts.

These hunts have grown in popularity over the last 5 years and are incredibly fun hunts.

nm-audad-sheepWe also offer guided hunts on private ranches where we control all access as well as numbers of hunters (with no draw) in New Mexico AND Texas. Our private ranch hunts in New Mexico have been nearly 100% shot and 90% harvest since 2001. We harvest some of the best barbary in the State of New Mexico, with a 27-28” average and every year we will harvest a few monsters in the 30” plus class.
