It is that way in Texas, they are a non-native exotic species, therefore no season required. I'm not sure about NM, but would assume it's the same.When I was stationed in NM, the aoudad was considered a nuisance, invasive species, and could be hunted year round without restriction. Do you know if it is still that way?
Where was that one taken?
They were filming a hunt for a tv show from what I understand it was day and night both. But yes they were using that thermal for daytime spotting as wellVery cool, I'm interested in details as well. Looks like a thermal camera, was it a night shoot, or just to help locate the target?
The rifle is the MC5 if you look at my last post hog killed with new rifle it goes over the details. The scope is Leopold set to the 120sst load. Not sure on the amount of shots taken, I was supposed to be there but work got in the way.That is one big ram. Here in Nevada the chances of getting a Big Horn sheep tag is 1 in 200 trillion! I have seen them many times near water, zero fear of humans because of the 1 in 200 trillion.
Come on give us all the details of yes, the rifle. Nice spiral fluted barrel, silencer? and huge Leupold scope. Just one shot? Factory of custom 120 SST?
This is the case. I've been trying to get drawn for a Pronghorn tag in NM for the last 3 years without success. I saw this hunt and threw my name in the hat this year despite the low draw odds just for gins. No Pronghorn but got the Aoudad. Now I have to get in shape for the rough terrain. The season is the month of February and there are 600 tags in the two units I drew in. Most shots are 300 to 500 yards if you see one.I guess NM has changed its view on them. They are now regulated as big game animals.
This is down on one of the Modern Outfitters hunting ranches down by Marfa Tx. They have a couple of ranches where they do guided hunts down there from what I understand, don't know all the details. Next month I'll be able to tell you more I'll be doing a hunt down there, I'm sick from missing this one.Where was that at? Texas? Nm?
At 400 yards. Wow, I would think the Barnes' 95 gr TSX would've been a better choice at that distance. Impressive.They have fallen in love with the 6.8 and 6.5 Creedmoor and are doing all they can to show people how effective the 6.8 is. All of these were taken with their 6.8 and the 120sst.
TLM, do you know why there is nothing 6.8 on their website except for 6.8 mags?They have fallen in love with the 6.8 and 6.5 Creedmoor and are doing all they can to show people how effective the 6.8 is. All of these were taken with their 6.8 and the 120sst.
