Private land Barbary sheep on McKnight ranch (Auodad) Barbary Sheep, Were introduced into the McKnight game preserve in 1940, in 1943 was the first known escape of Barbary sheep from the preserve. In 1950 New Mexico introduced Barbary sheep into south eastern New Mexico.
They quickly expanded their inhabitants to nearly the entire state of New Mexico. In 1955 (NMDGF) classified Barbary sheep as a game animal . In 1965 there was a large escape from the McKnight game preserve of 100+ animals and In 1967 New Mexico Department Game and Fish (NMDGF) did the first Hunt in the Hondo valley. Since the first Hunt in Hondo valley success rate for quality trophy rams has gone up from 14% to 85%.
Barbary sheep are truly an amazing animal, primarily living in rocky, cactus flats their diet consists of 90% cactus and yucca. This enables the sheep to go longer than other animals without visiting waterholes. This makes them very interesting to hunt and makes for a lot of time spent behind a good set of optics.
