Wife's first Aoudad (free range)

Recommended Posts

Hunted the Davis Mtns today and was able to put my wife on an awesome ram. She shot it with a Winchester model 70 FW 243 and shot it off hand at 172 yards. Super proud of her!!! He measures 30 1/8"!

WOW! Great trophy! The .243 is an under-rated caliber down here, overshadowed by the .270 and the hotter .30's.

Your wife obviously knows how to shoot and hit the target in the right place and the good old .243 did the rest.

Congratulations to you both.
