Has anyone ever tried eating aoudad?  I have for years heard that they are nasty and have never tried one myself.  Or for that matter Corsican ram or blackbuck?   I have heard that blackbuck is good, but everytime one comes in the shop they stink!  Like a deep, rutting, musky type of funk......that sometimes lingers even after the cape is tanned.   I get all the aoudad mounts on my lease but feel bad when I see everyone dump the carcasses in the pit after I cape them out.....any testimonials?

I have wondered the same thing. Looks like if nothing else you could make some jerky out of them or something.

Grind them up and feed the dogs with it.
When I would get a rank deer that is what I did with it.

We make dry sausage out of auodad and it is great. We also make a snack stick out of sheep such as Corsicans and they are popular. All I do is give a sample to any one going sheep hunting and it ensures a good order of sausage along with the mount. Even the large auodad rams are good as dry sausage. I am going on a helicopter hunt after this deer season and will have capes and horns and sausage available for sale probably in March.

i've eaten all of those and thought they were fine, pronghorn's the same way, smells like a goat, but I like pronghorn better than whitetail

I've had blackbuck that was OK.....corsican and those sorts of sheep tried it in sausage once nearly lost my lunch. The more you chew aoudad the bigger it gets. Its not bad in jerky. But I'm not that hungry to eat any of the three on a regular basis. I've got a freezer full of axis and oryx

Nope but they sure make a pretty mount.  I've got a very nice set of horns that are in need of a nice big lifesize skin if any one has one.LOL
