    Joe was in camp from Michigan and was hunting multiple animals. After seeing Dave take a Trophy Texas Ibex Joe Wanted one as well. So the next day we made the trip over to the other ranch to try to get Joe on a trophy Texas Ibex. After a quick lap around the ranch we had not seen any sign of the Texas Ibex. As we made our way back to the main road we headed down the road and as we came around a corner the Texas Ibex were all marching down the road in formation. We let the Ibex walk off the road and decided to make the first stalk of Joe’s Texas Ibex Hunts in Texas. As Tim walked Joe in to stalk the Ibex I pulled the truck down the road to watch and make sure they didn’t come across. Sure enough they walked across in front of me. I pulled back and waited for them to get back so we could reposition. We made our way up the road to get in front of them. I dropped Tim and Joe off and Tim got Joe set up and in position. I turned around and drove back around to where they had crossed to walk in and push them across in front of the hunter. It worked great and the Ibex crossed in front of the hunter at 40 yards. Tim had glassed the heard as they came off the hill and let Joe know which one to shoot. Joe waited patiently for the Ibex to cross in front of him and give him a shot. The shot hit home and the Ibex was down. It was a great Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. Congrats Joe!

    Dave was recently down with a group of hunters from Michigan and was interested in our Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. We set out for the ranch and after an hour drive from our base ranch we made it to the ranch we do our Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. As we made our way in we found the heard of Ibex and decided to drive on past them to get the wind right and stalk back on them. As we began our first stalk on Dave’s Texas Ibex hunts in Texas I noticed some Zebra were hanging out down the hill from us. Well it never fails when zebra are in the area they tend to ruin a perfectly good set up and this is what happened on our first stalk. As we approached the Zebra ran and spooked everything out of the area. We made our way back to the truck and figured we would catch up to them and try again. We pulled down the road and found the heard again. This time no Zebra in sight. We made our approach and got to about 100 yards but the Texas ibex were making their way up a ridge. We decided to fallow at a distance and slowly narrow our path towards them. After about 3/4 of a mile we were within 100 yards and the Texas Ibex where calmly walking with no clue we were on their trail. All of a sudden they all laid down. So we were stuck in a place we could not get any closer and the smaller ibex had surrounded the bigger ibex so we had no shot. After about an hour wait a few of the Texas Ibex began to get up As they did Dave found a shot and took it. Dave’s Texas Ibex hunts in texas came to a successful close. Congrats Dave on your Texas Ibex!

    Thomas and Mickey had made their way back to the Hill Country for Texas Ibex Hunts in Texas and to make up their Javelina hunt from 2012. On the First day of Thom and Mickey’s hunt we had a hard time finding the heard of Texas Ibex. We drove and drove and drove a little more hoping to spot the Goats on The Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. Well no luck we were going to have to find them pretty quick as it was getting pretty late in the day. We had seen every animal except the Ibex and knew they could not have disappeared. As we were driving the Ranch foreman said he had seen them earlier by a feeder in the front corner of the ranch. So we figured we better check it out. well after a little more searching we were putting the first stalk on Thomas Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. As we approached the goats were scattered in the oak trees 100 yards from us. I felt the wind shift and I knew we were not in a good position. So as we got busted I knew which way the goats were headed and if we hurried we could cut them off and maybe get a shot. So back in the truck and going at rodeo pace we got into position and began to wait for Thom to have a shot on his Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. The Texas Ibex started walking across the road in front of the truck and Thom picked a good one and took his shot. Clean miss!!! We started after them on foot but they were walking to fast to keep up with. So Thom’s first shot on his Texas ibex hunts in Texas was a miss and we were in a hurry to beat the sunset and try to get back on the Texas Ibex. So after some looking we lost them again, But not for long. We rounded a corner and there they were all standing around a big hay feeder.  We made a plan and got out to try to stalk over to the Ibex to get another shot on Thom’s Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. The heard started to filter across the flat in front of us. Thom had gotten out in front of us a little so he was on his own. Thom had his eye on one and he got ready to take another shot. This time there was no question Thom’s shot hit home on the Texas Ibex Hunts in Texas! Congrats Thom on a fine hunt and a great trophy Texas Ibex hunts in Texas.

    Mickey and Thom found their way back to the Hill Country for Texas Ibex hunts in Texas and to make up their rescheduled Javelina hunts from late 2012. On the second morning of their Texas ibex hunts in Texas we found ourselves driving the ranch looking for the heard so we could get out and stalk the Texas Ibex. Like the previous day we were having trouble finding the heard and decided there was only one place left they could be. As we were heading in the direction the land owner calls me and tells me that in fact is were they were. So we made our way up to the north end of the pasture to see if we could get Mickey the shot on his Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. As we stalked up the hill we could see a bunch of the Texas ibex laying in the sun all across the hillside. We worked our way towards them stalking from tree to tree. We would stop and glass from each location to try to pick out a good one and to make sure we were not being watched. As we approached the last group of trees we realized we would not be able to get any closer without running the risk of getting busted. We had picked out a good Texas Ibex for Mickey to take on his Texas Ibex hunts in Texas but we needed some of the other Texas Ibex to clear out of the way before we could get a shot. After waiting patiently and watching on his Texas Ibex hunts in Texas Mickey’s chance was about to be in front of him. A couple of the Texas ibex that were blocking the shot moved out of the way and mickey steadied himself and shot. At the time we were not clear as to what had happened but we knew it was a clean miss. The Texas Ibex had no idea where the shot came from so they were standing and looking for something to be alarmed about. This gave mickey time enough to get back on the Ibex and make a second shot. This time Mickey’s shot was true and his Texas Ibex hunts in Texas were complete. Congrats Mickey on a nice Texas Ibex hunts in Texas and look forward to having you guys back in October for Fallow.


  • Texas Ibex Hunts In Texas – Gary’s Texas Ibex

    Texas Ibex Hunts in Texas – Gary was in from California with his son and father and was actually down to hunt Aoudad with an itch to shoot a good Texas Ibex if he got the chance. We had been stand hunting for Aoudad and had not had much luck so on the second day we decided to run up and find some Aoudad on another ranch. After we looked at a few Aoudad we saw a nice Texas Ibex while making a loop to get back on the Aoudad. Well things went from Aoudad gear to Texas Ibex Hunts in Texas gear real quick. We knew there where some good ones in this pasture to look at but we had what I thought was a sure fire shooter standing before us. Well as things progressed 2 more Texas Ibex finally came to join the first Texas Ibex we had seen and one was a little better than the other two. As we devised a plan to get on them we noticed the other 2 where in the neighboring pasture which was ok it was still on our property just made things a little more difficult to get a shot. As we approached again to get a good look and make sure this was the Texas Ibex Gary wanted they scattered into the brush before we could get a shot. But we had made the decision that if we saw them again we would try to shoot the better Texas Ibex. We made another lap around the pasture and as we got close to the area we had been seeing the Texas Ibex I told Gary to be ready that we needed to be quick to get a shot on the Texas Ibex if they where back out in the open. We slowly made our way up over the rise and sure enough there they where. We didn’t waste any time Gary steadied himself for the shot and let it rip we had discussed shooting through the fence and Gary placed the shot very well on the Texas Ibex…Or so we thought. We approached the gate and as we got through it we could see the Texas Ibex was up and making a run for it. I instructed Gary to put another round in and get another shot on him when he cleared the next brush. The second shot was a clean miss and we started to trail him. For the next 2 hours we were blood hounds until we finally lost blood and it started to rain and get dark. So we made the decision to go back to the Lodge and a couple of the guides would come back and resume the search for the Texas Ibex first thing in the morning. Well Gary knew that was the best thing to do but that did not keep him from feeling bad and wishing we could do more at the time. After a good dinner and discussing the situation and assuring Gary we had never lost an animal in that pasture we decided that two guides and Gary’s Son and Father would go back and pick up were we left off the search for the Texas Ibex and Gary and I would continue to hunt Aoudad. It was a tough decision but Gary didn’t want to miss out on hunting time if he could help it. After a couple hours of hunting that morning we got a text and it was good news. The other group had found the Texas Ibex and had to finish him off but he was done and was a very nice animal. After a long day in the field we made our way back to the lodge for dinner and for Gary to get a good look at his Trophy Texas Ibex. Congrats Gary on a great Texas Ibex. Cant wait to have you guys back to finish off the Aoudad hunt.

    Donald had made his way to Texas from California with his son Gary and his grandson Coby and his brother Paul for Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. On day two of the hunt we set out for one of our ranches that hold some good Texas Ibex. Coby had already harvested his Trophy Texas Dall so he was along for the ride, and Paul and Gary were looking for Aoudad. So we got to the ranch and started Donald’s Texas Ibex hunts in Texas. As we made our way through the first pasture we set out to find the Texas Ibex. After making our way up a small hill I could see two animals bedded down in an opening in front of us. As we got close we could tell they were two Texas Ibex. As we glassed them over we determined there was a shooter billy in front of us and Donald exited the vehicle. We confirmed the one in the back was the better goat. Donald made his way to the front of the truck and rested off the bumper. As The Texas Ibex stepped into a clearing Donald let the shot ring out. The Texas Ibex hunched up hard but ran out of sight into some thick brush. We pulled up and got out to track Donald’s Ibex and we were discouraged that there was no blood anywhere to be found. As we walked up the road looking for blood there was a big clearing to our right and I peered around the corner and I knew that Donald’s Texas Ibex hunt was a Success. I stuck my hand out to shake Donald’s hand in congratulations. Donald had not seen his Texas Ibex yet so he had that confused what the heck are you shaking my hand for look on his face. That expression quickly changed when I pointed over in the clearing and he could see his Trophy Texas Ibex down in the clearing. Donald was excited to get a closer look and we made our way over to him. Donald great shooting on your Texas Ibex Hunts in Texas congrats on a fine trophy!
