Cranston, RI (Ammoland.Com) – SWAROVSKI OPTIK NORTH AMERICA, a subsidiary of the Austrian-based company, announces SWAROVSKI OPTIK Quests: With the Eyes of a Hawk, begins another incredible season on Outdoor Channel this week with host, Dean Capuano, and special guest, Kristy Titus, heading to Texas for an aoudad hunt that leaves them both breathless. Watch SWAROVSKI OPTIK Quests Sundays at 6:30 p.m. ET exclusively on Outdoor Channel.
Aoudad, also known as Barbary sheep, are native to Northern Africa and were brought over to Texas after World War II. They broke out of captivity and have grown to a sizeable, free-range herd that has adapted well to west Texas’ craggy, mountainous areas.
“Aoudad’s vision is amazing. You could be 1,000 yards off and if they see any movement, they are gone,” said Dean Capuano, host. “They are flourishing in this desert, dry area. They have adapted to their environment and trust me, they are very wary.”
With the team of Off-Grid Outfitters assisting Titus on her first sheep hunt, the crew starts climbing so they can begin glassing to find their targeted sheep. They spot a herd on a mountainside and set Titus up quickly. She takes a breath and…misses just in front of the animal. “It’s alright, it was a clean miss, the herd grouped up on another outcrop nearby. So we can regroup and go after them again,” said Titus. They executed a perfect plan to give Titus another shot at the exact same ram. “The plan worked beautifully. I was able to get a prone rest, take my time and not feel rushed. It worked out perfect,” concluded Titus smiling over her first ram.
