Pardon the ignorance, but can you eat Aoudad? I have never shot one, and may have a possible hunt lined out on one.

I've never had it but the guys I know who have tried it say its terrible. Probably one of those things you'll have to decide for yourself.

Yes they are. But like any game if you do not take care of it properly it will taste like the effort you put into saving it. I have eaten young rams and all age ewes. Made sausage, jerky, smoked meats, dried sausage, tamales and prepared the cuts like I would other venison. I have been told that large older rams need to be skinned immediately being careful not touch the meat if you touch the hair and get it cooled down in a walkin cooler. Then allow the carcass to age as long as you can if at all possible.

My stepdad shot on in 1997. Around 2004 I finally got the taste outta my mouth.


that said, none of the family at that time were gourmet chefs....they would have made a Kobe Ribeye taste horrible.



I don't know of anyone who eats them in anything other than sausage. Client of mine shot a big one in October. They are from Baton Rouge and eat anything. They cooked it in crock pots and said it was tough but decent flavored



I do know a coyote will clean one up almost overnight

We tried cooking some that my daughter gave me like it was venison, we tried everything. We even wrapped it in bacon grilled it, and it made the bacon taste bad.
We finally decided that aoudad was to be a jerky animal, and we made a lot of jerky, and sausage. Everybody loved it.

They make good coyote bait. If I wanted one to eat Iíd kill a cabrito size.

A lot more majestic than a hog imo but not the greatest table fare

You can eat pretty much any animal the question is do you really want to?

As has been stated, aoudad is in the same category as sheep/goat. If you don't like lamb and/or goat, then you probably won't like it. Also, if it free-range, it will be a lot more gamey than one that is eating mainly corn/protein feed.

Like with lamb/goat, slow roasting with lots of good spices (I recommend Moroccan, Indian and Persian spices) is the way to go. If you have a tagine, then I highly recommend trying it out in that. If you don't have a tagine, you should get one.

Sounds pretty good, because we like lamb and goat. I'd like to try some. Can't afford to hunt one currently, though. Wanted to when I was young and dumb stationed in NM. But I was... young and dumb and didn't make time. My loss.

The ewes and young ones are ok to eat. The big rams? No. We usually take a ewe off of our place each year and have the whole thing made into smoked sausage. It is quite good that way.
