Where to hunt Mouflon

Mouflons are thought to be one of the ancestors of domestic sheep. Biologists believe the mouflon went extinct in the wild state across their original range, that covered the mountains of Europe up to Crimea, in the Neolithic period, but survived on a few Mediterranean islands where they were introduced by people at about the same time. From these islands the mouflon was introduced to hunting estates all over its current range, which includes most European countries, such as Spain, France, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria and Russia, as well as countries with developed game farm culture, including Argentina, Uruguay, the USA, and South Africa.

Price distribution

The price of the mouflon hunt is typically made up of daily rate and trophy (or shooting) fee. The daily rate in Europe ranges between $200 and $1,000, depending on the country and whether accommodation and meals are included. The trophy fee is usually calculated from horn size, and may range from a nominal sum for a non-trophy or cull animal, to $3,000-$5,000 for a good head, and even more for a record book class trophy. For sheep hunts, as compared to North American species or the Marco Polo, it’s still a bargain.

When to hunt Mouflon?

Being an exotic species, the mouflon can be hunted a year round in many places. However, most European hunting preserves, especially with free range herds, prefer to hunt mouflon in the autumn and winter, from about September to February. The best time for a trophy hunter is the rut, which usually happens around October in the Northern Hemisphere, and around June in the Southern.

Hunting methods All hunting methods (13)

Mouflon is a kind of sheep that is adapted to life in wooded mountains. They usually dwell on the border of woods and Alpine meadows, moving to higher and lower altitudes depending on the season. As the result, mouflon hunting methods aren’t limited to the spot-and-stalk technique common for all mountain game. When the animals are down in the woods, they are often hunted from high seats or in the course of a driven hunt. If you’re after a genuine mountain hunting experience, check that the outfitter is located in a mountainous area (some mouflon hunting preserves are in the hills and even plain woods), and that the timing of the hunt is when the animals are in the meadows.

Why hunt Mouflon? All hunts (114)

The mouflon was one of the species that originally introduced Europeans to sheep hunting for sport. The aristocrats that cruised the Mediterranean in their yachts tried to hunt wild mouflon on the islands, and found it an exciting and challenging pursuit. This spurred the interest in Asian and North American wild sheep hunting. In spite of the stigma of the official status as a feral/exotic animal, mouflons are wary and careful, and can be quite a challenge to harvest. Its adaptation to life in the woods provides a unique hunting experience, and in proper habitat mouflon is a great affordable introduction to sheep hunting.
