Overview of Texas Aoudad Hunt - Palo Duro Canyon
The spectacular rough & rugged Palo Duro Canyon in west Texas is known as a smaller version of the Grand Canyon and the location of this amazing hunt. Enjoy access to around 10,000 private acres around and in the canyon near Claude, TX.
This terrain is ideal for Aoudad! They love this rough rugged country so their numbers are high along with good trophy quality. Rifle hunters have enjoyed 95% shot opportunity on this very high success hunt!
This is a 1×1 guided spot & stalk style hunt with good roads for easier access for the physically challenged. You and your guide will drive along the canyon ridge tops to different parts of the ranch and then spot & stalk hunt with a lot of glassing into the canyon bottoms. Climbing down into the canyon from the top is very difficult. Some areas have access to the canyon bottom so you can drive to the bottom and then hunt down there as well.
This hunt is normally done either in Feb/March or October during the rut. There is some flexibility so call about date options.
You can arrive in the evening, hunt the following four full days and depart the following morning or arrive at noon for a PM hunt, hunt three full days, AM hunt the following day and depart after lunch. It’s your choice.
You will enjoy a very nice, comfortable 2-story ranch house during your stay. 2 bedrooms share a bathroom upstairs and 2 bedrooms share a bathroom downstairs. There is 1 bedroom with a private bathroom for couples downstairs as well. There’s a large trophy room/den/dining area that has a large bar, a pool table and a stone fireplace with comfortable seating for all.
Tasty home cooked meals and plenty of it! It’s your choice to take lunch with you or come back to the lodge and eat.
