Come Armed With Information When Hunting Corsican Rams

What are some key things to remember when hunting Corsican rams at Tioga Boar Hunting in Pennsylvania?

These animals aren’t found in abundance in the United States. Hunting opportunities are limited. Demand exceeds supply. If you do “get one,” you’re among a privileged few!

Corsican Ram Breeding Time

Breeding time is from late fall to early winter. Don’t bother rams who are busy getting busy.

Corsican Rams Have Extremely Strong Heads

Who’s stronger, you or them? Well, when it comes to their ability to take a blow to the head, Corsican rams win. They’re truly amazing. Did you know they can withstand a blow to the head 60 times greater than what it takes to fracture your skull? Whoa! If two rams are fighting, that’s an ultimate battle, and some can fight for up to 20 hours at a time.

The of Corsican Rams

Rams can weigh over 300 pounds. Mature ones have horns measuring up to 3 feet long with base circumferences of 15 inches or so. Pretty impressive, right? When hunting Corsican rams, look for the biggest, oldest looking ones. Broomed horns and scarred noses tell you, the hunter, that the particular ram you’re looking at is old. When you see several rams together, you’ll get a better perspective of both body and horn size. The frontal view is the best way to judge a ram– you can see how far the bottoms of the horns drop below the jaw as well as how far up the tips extend. If you’re ever close enough, you can try counting the growth rings on a ram’s horn to determine its age.

At Tioga, when you shoot and kill a Corsican ram, your guide can skin and butcher it. Then you’ll have steaks, chops and spareribs to take home with you in your cooler– make sure your cooler is at least 64 quarts.
