There is some in the MT Taylor area but are very spotty.

Have hunted them several times, but have yet to find them. I know where they are not. I did have a chopper pilot that I got to know, that was doing elk surveys last winter, said he seen about 30 of them, when the snow was very deep. He told me that he would take me to them, but it obviously never worked out. So whether he was FOS or not, I really dont have any idea. I did find the audads very often. I got into those nearly every time that we went.

I have seen them once (3) on the far East side but they were not huntable, the Barbary have been pretty evasive also.

I have found the sheep every time I have been hunting the tahr, and my wife killed a 30 inch audad 2 years ago. I wish I could change my luck, and find the tahr instead of the sheep. I have killed a train load of sheep, but have never seen the tahr.

how rough of country are the aoudads in? look like an interesting critter but i cant do to much climbing due to my phucked up knees.....realize monsters are prolly in remote country but say a guy is just looking for an average ram?
