Awesome Aoudad Hunt @ Cibolo Creek Ranch
There is definitely a story to be told about this HUNT! I was fortunate to be invited to accompany Kenneth Tallent, of Tallent Roofing and Johnny Kennedy to the historical Cibolo Creek Ranch in Marfa Texas.
“The finest luxury hotel and resort in the Big Bend of West Texas isn’t really a hotel, at least not a traditional one. But this is Texas, after all. So imagine the ultimate in peace, comfort, and luxury, as enchanting as you can experience in the Lone Star State, and then you’ll start to comprehend Cibolo Creek Ranch. Captains of industry have escaped from responsibility here. Numerous high profile clients have touched down on our airstrip for the privilege of privacy and serenity. World-famous songbirds have filled the night sky here with their familiar tunes. Some have even gotten married here. All you need to know is that every guest at Cibolo Creek Ranch is treated like a welcomed friend.”—-Cibolo Creek Resort.
This magnificent resort provides full service lodging from the like that you may have never seen, at least it was like that for. Treated like Royalty from the moment you arrive, and never skipping a beat with all of your needs recognized and addressed before it is even a though in your head! Our group were the only hunters among all the guests, and most were there to find peace and tranquility, which surrounds the entire area. I did not get to go on the Hummer tours, or experience the ATV tours offered, nor did I get to participate in the star gazing, but I did tour the breathtaking area as we hunted for the Free Range Aoudad, spotting many herds, but usually a mile or more away. This was some hard hunting for this girlie-girl, eventually hiking over 600 yards, nearly straight up a mountain side, to sneak up on a herd of Aoudad we had spotted thousands of yards away from the other side! The story has a happy and rewarding ending as you can see here, and the details are being composed as I type and will bring you to the edge of your seat! From checking mountain Lion Traps with Cody and Robert Canvass, and shooting trap with owner John Poindexter, I had a wonderful time, and I cannot wait to go back, and hang around for a few days of relaxation before… or after the hunt!
, and will always be one of the most memorable trips in my life. Rustic in design, the Cibolo Creek Ranch was orignially a Fort Visit the website and whatever you see there can only touch upon this magical ranch and the stories around every stone!
