We have shot many like that over the years his hide is stained from wallowing. If you shoot him get him mounted his hide will be washed and come out to be the same color as the rest in the picture. Pretty normal site right there nothing wrong with him.
Incredible. What part of "Mulie Mike has seen more aoudads than anyone on this forum" don't ya'll understand???
I've seen a WHOLE lot of aoudads but even I haven't seen as many as Mike.
That aoudad is exactly what he said. They wallow in mud or ash piles and turn even blacker than that. But when tanned the natural color comes right back.
