Continuing on with a student’s progression to master the art of long range hunting, this event is built around training and hunting Aoudad in West Texas. The area we hunt offers free range, low fence Aoudad (also known as Barbary Sheep) hunting in open and rough, but accessible desert terrain that often presents extended range shot opportunities. After we conclude a day of training, we follow up with a three day two on one guided hunt for trophy Aoudad.
This hunt experience includes advanced in-field training drills. The style of hunting, terrain, and good eyesight of sheep lend themselves well to long range hunting. Shooting drills allow participants to shoot on the ranch at various ranges from 400-1000 yards to verify data and build confidence in wind calls and their long range rifle systems.
Gunwerks will provide snacks, lunch, and plenty of water, soda, and coffee while attending our courses. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions ahead of time so that we can facilitate meals for you.

Plan to meet at the Mayfield store at 7:00pm On October 9th, 2020
From Ozona you will take Highway 163 south toward Comstock. There is an intersection where Highway 189 runs into/merges with 163 and there is a Historical marker here. From this intersection you will need to travel another 6 miles south and on the right hand side/west side of the road there will be an old shut down store (Mayfield Store). There are a bunch of mileages to cities on the front of it for reference. This will be the meeting location.
You can also get here from Sonora by going south on 277 toward Del Rio then taking the Juno exit which is Highway 189 and follow it until it hits 163 and follow directions from there. From Comstock you will go north on 163 until you reach the meeting location which is about 35 minutes from town.
When you leave Sonora, Ozona, or Comstock make sure you have a full tank of gas and any supplies. There is nothing in between and you will need to travel back if you forget anything.
From Ozona to Mayfield Store- 45 minutes
From Sonora to Mayfield Store- 1 hour
From Comstock to Mayfield Store- 35 minutes
