Our ranch has one of the few pureblood Mouflon herds available for hunting. Many ranches promote "Mouflons" but most are interbred to some degree, and thus, they are really Mouflon-type sheep, not purebreds.

Mouflon sheep are like no other trophy animal. As expert Rickey Hunt states on his informative Web site Mouflon World,

"The Magic of Mouflons first hit me some years ago when I attended an Exotic Sale. A Pure European Mouflon ram came into the ring and the atmosphere quickly changed. Before us all was this animal, dressed in his majestic winter coat colors that caught the eye of everyone there. Since that time I have not been the same! This sensation or magic still lives on within me, even stronger than that first introduction to the Majestic European Mouflon sheep."
