It looks like I have a pretty good chance of getting to hunt an Aoudad Sheep in Trans-Pecos Texas this weekend. I have never hunted any big game before, and have a couple of questions.

My rifle is a 7mm Rem Mag, is this big enough? I have access to a .300 short mag also, would that be any better?

On average, how much weight am I looking at packing out after I quarter it?

How long will I have to get the meat out, and on ice, since it will most likely be HOT?

Any general tips from anyone that has BTDT?

Thanks in advance.
