Where to hunt Somalia Ram
Somalia ram is originally a breed of domestic sheep widespread in North-Eastern Africa. These sheep do not produce wool, and are bred exclusively for their meat and fat. Somalia sheep were introduced by Europeans to South America, where they went feral and are now offered for hunting in countries like Argentina.
Somalia ram shooting fees is usually in the neighborhood of $2,000. Add the daily rate, which in Argentina is typically on the order of $500, and the price of the other trophies you might want to take (as few people will be willing to undertake such a journey for a feral ram) to get the price of the complete hunt.

When to hunt Somalia Ram?
Somalia ram is a feral/exotic animal, and can be hunted all through the year. This allows the hunter to schedule the hunt in synch with hunting for other, more expensive species that are found in the area. The winter (in Southern hemisphere, lest you forget, it runs from about May to August), would perhaps work best.
Somalia ram is usually taken opportunistically, when an opportunity arises in the process for hunting other species. As such, it’s mostly the classic spot-and-stalk mountain hunt. This falls into two parts: location of the suitable animal, and a careful approach to it, taking into account the direction of the wind, available cover, and millions of other details. Stalking Somalia ram is usually on the medium on the difficulty scale.
Why hunt Somalia Ram?
Hunting feral sheep may not be anyone’s cup of tea, but bear in mind that mouflon, the classic object of hunting in Europe and on the islands of the Mediterranean, is technically a feral animal as well. Modern research suggests that the mouflon was introduced by humans to the islands such as Crete and Corsica in the Neolith, then the escaped animals formed a wild population, and from there were introduced to hunting estates across Europe. Those who are afraid the hunt will not be challenging enough may make things easier by choosing spot-and-stalk hunt with short-range weapons, such as a handgun, a muzzleloader, or archery gear. No sheep is easy to stalk within bow range.
