Iberian Mouflon Sheep
Specie: Capra Hircus
Body height: 2,29 ft / 70 cm
Weight: 88-154 lb / 40-70 kg
One of the world’s smallest wild sheep, resembling a slim domestic sheep except that it has a normal coat of hair, any wool being concealed beneath. Upper parts are reddish-brown with a pale (almost white) saddle patch in the winter coat. Underparts, rump, lower legs and muzzle are white. There is dark neck ruff but no bib. The horns usually grow in a tight circle, with the tips turned inward toward the face and broomed back to about a three-quarter curl.
Behavior Gregarious. Females with young form year-round flocks; mature males have separate flocks. Mainly a grazer, but browses to an extent. Feeds largely at night, resting by day in thick cover. Vision and hearing are excellent, sense of smell less so. A good runner.
All national territory and National Parks.
Between the mountains in the open areas, dry and hard terrains.
Lodging is provided in small hotels and rural houses very close to the hunting area where you can enjoy wonderful meals.
Rutting period: October to December.
Hunting is arranged by stalking in Private Game Reserves. Driven hunt is possible as well.
