The Judge has been taking a few animals off the old bucket list and this trip it was a Trophy Mouflon Ram. After looking over several specimens we finally decided to take “A SHOT” at this great Trophy Mouflon and the Judge made a heck of a shot and dropped him. Congrats Judge on great Trophy Mouflon and I know you will enjoy him hopefully for many more years!

Family Mouflon Hunt

Forister Exotics Mouflon Hunts

mouflon Paula

Les Contacted me back in September looking for a Trophy Mouflon hunt for his wife. Didn’t take long and we had the dates set up. Well Sunday November 23 rolled around and Les his wife Paula and son Jacob made their way to the ranch. We discussed some options for their hunt and it was decided it would be fun for everyone to try sitting the first evening together and see what would happen. As with any hunting situation the more people in a blind is usually not for the better. More human odor the urge to talk and laugh and things of that nature is usually not good. But as I returned at dark to pick the Davis Family up they told me they had seen a good number of animals through the evening hunt and even a pretty nice Mouflon Ram. A couple hours later I got the text asking if it was a shooter or not with a picture of a nice Mouflon! Dang cell phone service!! Well we had a good dinner that evening and the group wanted to try their hand at some predator hunting and we did pretty good got a few fox and a ringtail. The next morning we woke to 40 degrees and a slight wind out of the west. I knew the same stand they where in the evening before should be good this morning because I usually see a good number of Mouflon in the are or crossing through it. So around 8 I get a call from Les saying they have a nice Mouflon on the ground. I quickly made my way out to the stand and sure enough they did have a nice Mouflon down. Forister Exotics Mouflon hunts can be conducted in many ways this time it worked out well for a Family to sit together and enjoy watching Paula take her first exotic. Congrats Davis family on a nice Mouflon ram.

Mouflon Sales Tactic

Mouflon Hunts at Forister Exotics

Doug Mouflon

After the shot Doug called it my Mouflon Sales tactic, That is to drive around continuously looking at big Mouflon and the hunter or someone in the truck will eventually say ” I’ll shoot that one” !! Well we had been looking for a couple of fallow bucks for a good part of the day for another hunter in the group and we had already harvested a nice Blackbuck. We kept running into a group of Mouflon and this time I guess they were just tired of running away from us and we got a chance to really look at them and pick out a good old Mouflon Ram. Once we had our Mouflon Ram picked out Doug was quick to pull the trigger and made a tough quartering shot that stopped the Mouflon in his tracks. Once we got up on him we quickly realized we had a a pretty nice old Mouflon on our hands. Congrats Doug and this one will go great on the wall.

Sharp shooting Shikaris

Exotic Meat Hunt with SSS

Shikaris group

I had the distinct honor of hosting the 1st hunt with the Sharp Shooting Shikaris Hunting Club based in the greater Houston area. When I booked the hunt I had no idea what I was in for but I am glad the group was able to make it out and hunt with Forister Exotics. We started the weekend Friday afternoon at the gun range sighting in rifles and then had a small tutorial on animal species and pricing and what they could shoot and what not to shoot. After everyone was comfortable and ready to go hunt we made our way to the blinds for the first evening. Many animals where seen the first evening and the guys where able to get a few animals down including a nice Aoudad ram. After a little sleep we made our way back to the blinds Saturday morning. The group wanted to experience a few different methods of hunting so over the weekend we hunted from blinds, Safari Style and tried a few spot and stalk hunts. The group ended up with a good amount of meat to take home and they also learned a lot about the animals and hunting in general. After a great hunt the guys had one last meal at the lodge and loaded up to head home. This was a fun hunt for me and I also enjoyed seeing the different cultures the group brought to the hunt. Hopefully we will have them back out for a deer hunt when the season rolls around. Big thanks to Usmon for setting the hunt up. Congrats to all the hunters on their successful hunt at Forister Exotics.

Animals looking Good!

Driving through the ranch this morning I don’t recall this country being this green in July in a long time. Starting to heat up and get into the normal summer weather pattern for this time of the year. This morning on the pass through checking fence and water stations I saw our big Red Stag males and they are still in velvet growing but they looked impressive. I also ran across some giant mouflon sheep and some good Axis Bucks. Yesterday I was over at the ranch in Real County and had a chance to look at our Red Sheep and one of the Elk we have in the pasture over there. That Elk has really started to come along looks to be bigger than the 330 class bull he was last year. So anyone interested in a great Elk, absolutely fantastic Red Sheep, super nice Red Stag or some big Axis or mouflon give me a call and get your hunt booked today.
