My dad is getting older, about 73 now, I’m en years from now I don’t want to regret not getting out on another good hunt with him.

I’m looking for recommendations for a free range texas Barbary sheep hunt, dad can hike well but he’s getting up there in age. I’d love to be able to go on one of these hunts with him. 3-5 days or so, free range, hopefully somewhere with good quality animals too.

Any suggestions are appreciated, I’m more or less ready to pull the trigger and book it. A year out is ok as it give my dad some time to set up his regular fitness routine and work on his shooting.

Preferably 2 hunters (dad and me) one guide if that’s how it goes.

Thanks!!!

Give a look at high west outfitters. I was a spectator on the hunt with a buddy of mine. We had a great experience with a guide named Creed Cade. Hunt was south of Alpine, TX almost to the border.

Well I had some New Mexicans set me straight when I was talking about “aoudad” in NM.

Anyway, I’m excited for you and your dad. Barbary sheep is one of the down south hunts I’m really interested in.

We’ve been talking about it for years now. The other day my dad told me he was heading in for a few routine surgeries and it got me thinking that I can either just do it or risk the regret.

westtexashunt.com and huntaoudad.com both get some solid feedback. I did a diy hunt w/ the first and had a blast. Wasn’t successful, but I wouldn’t hesitate to book a guided trip with them at all.

Not sure on wether you and your dad will want to camp/lodge/etc but there’s quite a range of accommodation on those hunts so make sure to ask specifically.

It can get pretty damn hot on September and October hunts if that’s a factor for y’all.

Like seemingly everything else, I’d call and book soon. These hunts have gotten extremely popular.

Hope y’all have an awesome time, excited for you.

Look into Aherns ranch. Went with them a couple years ago. Can’t tell you how many sheep we seen. The hunt was awesome. The food was unbelievable to. Me and my buddy both killed gold metal rams.

Roy Hurley with H.E. Sproul Ranch in Fort Davis, Texas. Biggest recommendation I have is save up for the extra trophy fee and shoot two.
