Aoudad Hunting Information

  • Aoudad sheep go by many names including aoudad goat, barbary sheep, waddan, arui, and arruis.
  • Despite being native to the rocky mountains of North Africa, they are more likely to be found in Texas than they are in Africa.
  • It is believed that their population in Texas has increased 1800 percent since 1963 to 25,000.
  • Aoudad sheep can jump up to 7 feet high from a standstill!
  • Their coat gets darker with age, but you can expect a light sandy-brown color (as they come from sandy mountains in Africa).
  • Aoudads have long hair hanging from their chests and forelegs that is referred to as “chaps.”  These chaps allow them to be taxidermied into beautiful half-body mounts.
  • They are most active at dawn and dusk to avoid the heat of day.
  • Aoudad sheep create dirt beds high in the mountains to sleep on.
  • The species are more closely related to wild goats than to sheep.
