Aoudad Sheep also known as Barbary Sheep originated in the Atlas Mountains of North Africa along the Barbary Coast. In the early 1950's Aoudad Sheep were brought to West Texas by ranchers in an effort to establish a new big game hunting oppertunities. Aoudad Sheep have flourished in West Texas and are now found roaming in the rugged moutains of the Trans-Pecos region, which includes the Glass, Chinati and Davis Mountains. Hunting for the Aoudad Sheep is likely the best trophy sheep hunting value in the world.
"On all my hunts I felt like a member of a hunting party hunting with a group of old friends, not a client : that makes Desert Safaris special"
