    Nice Ram...., sounds like you had a great experience with your son whom I assume will have fond memories of this hunt long after you are gone,....must be some pretty bad forage for them to taste so bad....

    Aoudad hunting is very tough. The terrain is just awful. Lots of long climbs but coming down is worse. Slipping and sliding on the small rocks makes walking very difficult. This was before my back surgery and I had to take three advil before each stalk. But it was worth it.

    I shot the ram at last light and had to come off the mountain in the dark. That was a challenge. We left the ram on the mountain until the next morning. I was able to use my shooting sticks as a walking cane and support and my son carried my rifle. It's hell getting old.

    Thanks everyone for the positive remarks.

    What did you shoot it with and how close could you get?
