Why hunt with us?

Aoudad hunting is all we do

We spend every day up on the mountains in pursuit of aoudad herds right here in far Southwest Texas. While others are guiding for other animals, we focus on aoudad only so that we can provide the best possible hunt for those looking to take that trophy ram.

Numbers don't lie

Over the last 4 years we’ve taken 130 aoudad from our ranches right here in Big Bend country.

Trophy rams

It’s not uncommon to see multiple trophy rams during one of our hunts. We’re literally covered up with them!

What our guests are saying

“Your lower price hunts allows someone (like myself) who couldn’t afford a $5000 hunt to be able to go on a hunt of a lifetime. I can say this because hunting with Chris back in August was one of the best hunts of my life! Car-camping by myself for almost a week was just part of the adventure. You may not be guaranteed a gold medal ram or have a 5 star lodge with this hunt, but it’s a hunt you will never forget. Work your ass off and you could get the chance at a stud of a ram. , thanks to having an experienced guide like Chris that will literally do everything they can to get you a sheep is worth every penny! I was fortunate enough to get an awesome ram when I was there in August, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat!”

C. Sanford - Austin, Texas

“Chris knows how to hunt these things. I’ve personally been on two hunts with him so far. Chris is so knowledgeable about the land and how to track these animals. I’ve never learned so much and had such a great time hunting! Highly recommend Chris to take you out and learn about the plants, about the land and terrain! It’s an experience you will never get with anyone else!!!”

T. Wylie - Alpine, Texas

So those of you who want to get a taste of West Texas this is the hunt for you. Your guides Chris and Dave are true desert guys, outside of knowing all you would ever need to know about the sheep that inhabit this rugged area, they can also teach and show you all the essential desert survival skills it takes to live in this harsh environment. You will know from meeting them immediately that they care about you and you’re not just another number to them. This is the reason I will go back to them and why I will recommend my friends and peers to hunt with them. Not to mention that I harvested a sheep that exceeded my expectations and also saw double digit numbers of them every day on my hunt.

“I had the luxury of hunting with Chris Leland as my guide. I met him and his family the day before I was scheduled to hunt. We spent that evening getting to know each other and glassing the mountain. We spotted a handful of sheep and had a good idea of where to start in the morning.

We started up the mountain under the cover of darkness and got to a good stopping point while we waited for the sunrise. To my surprise Mr. Leland pulled out some home made breakfast burritos which were awesome. So we sat and watched the sun rise as we ate breakfast on the mountain. Once it was light enough to start glassing again we slowly continue up attempting to locate our sheep again. Eventually we found them at the top and located a great shooter bedded down.

Chris took me to another little point that sat across from where he was bedded down to set up for my shot. I made a good shot from peak to peak at 323 yards and watched as my ram disappeared just over the bluff. I felt great when I let the bullet fly but did not expect the ram to get up so I became a little discouraged. He assured me the shot was good and my ram would be close. He was correct and he found my ram laying about 30 yards on the other side of the peak.

We sat and chatted about the military service we both did while processing the ram and slowly began our decent. For just meeting him we bonded great. For me a good guide makes or breaks a trip. It’s not just about the killing of the animal to me. He made me feel like I was hunting with a buddy I’ve known for years. To me that makes a big difference.

I’ve hunted with a good amount of guides who get me on animals but I can tell they are just there to make money. Hunting with Mr Leland showed me he was about the full experience. Wanted me to be successful as well enjoy my hunt completely. To this day I still try to talk my buddies into going with me and hunting with him. He completely understands the mountain and the animals he chases. One of my favorite hunts I’ve ever been on and can’t wait to return. He also makes for a good photographer. The photo he took of me won the cover photo of Texas hunting forum. ”
