Some of the least explored reaches of west Texas, the Big Bend region is beautiful and ecologically diverse. Of note – the area also produces some of the biggest 100% wild and free-range Aoudad rams anywhere. This is a true mountain sheep hunt for big, wild, desert dwelling sheep. Some vast areas here have never yet been formally outfitted and ancient Aoudad rams die of old age. Several very strategic private and exclusive ranches have produced phenomenal results with impressive Aoudad measuring 35+ inches and aged at 13-14 years old!
A big advantage on this package is that two outfitters (who each offer Texas Desert Bighorn sheep hunts) have partnered together to develop truly premier, but limited trophy Aoudad packages. These hunts come standard at 5 full days, personally 1x1 guided by the outfitters in search of only top end rams, exclusive to only 2 hunters in camp at a time. A very limited quota on these ranches of 5-6 hunts annually ensures the time needed to produce the biggest Aoudad. Trophy sheep require time to grow, and these hunts are about quality vs quantity.
Our primary ranches are reserved for our limited premier 5-day trophy hunts. The outfitter also offers regular trophy hunts on other nearby ranches, which are 3 full days, but still personally 1x1 guided by the outfitters to ensure the best experience and highest success rates. Opportunities exist to add a second Aoudad for a trophy fee, or combine with Javelina as targets of opportunity. The Hacienda lodge is 20 miles deep into private property behind a locked fence for ultimately remoteness and privacy. Big rams, cold beers, and dinners under the stars cooked over mesquite coals completes the experience.
"I was looking for a big Aoudad and wanted a real west Texas mountain hunt. Driving to the ranch was like turning back the clock to the old west. The outfitters were knowledgeable, professional, hardworking, and had eyes like falcons! This is how sheep are meant to be hunted!"

"I was looking for a quality Aoudad hunt, and Adrian didn’t disappoint. The hunt screamed quality the moment I pulled onto the vast property. I took an incredible ram and became friends for life with my guide. I’d recommend this hunt to anyone looking for a true quality experience."
Randy, WI, USA
"A truly wild Aoudad sheep in an environment with no fences of any kind has been on my bucket list for many years. Adrian set me up with an outfitter that has the perfect fit. Two hunts in two years with TAIGA and both home runs! Client for life!"
Rob, IL, USA
"When I first contacted Adrian, I was looking for a particular Aoudad hunt. I wanted to earn it and experience some rough west Texas terrain. He had the perfect hunt for me! It took a few days, and lots of glassing but we found the perfect ram. Classic sheep hunt! Thanks for delivering."
