What would you compare the Aoudad to ? Heard both bad and good but how its handled makes the difference.
If you can imagine
80 % venison
15 % beef
5 % lamb
Something like that in a flavor profile, if that makes any sense.
I guess I’d compare it to venison.
This is the only one I have ever shot and eaten.
It was a mature ewe.
I made a quick , clean kill.
Gutted her quickly,and got her cooled down fast.
Had her hang in cooler for 5-6 days before she was processed.
It has been some fine eating!
Before I went on the hunt I had many people tell me Aoudad wasn’t fit to eat.
It was nasty.
Leave it for the yotes.
Even the ewes and kids are not edible.
I have always been one to eat what I shoot, and form my own opinion on the taste of game.
I have enjoyed many game meats that others have said are trash.
Wild turkey,feral hog,javelina,duck,sand hill crane,and Aoudad to name a few.
I have found that if game is harvested,cleaned,processed,and cooked properly, it is all good.
