Corsican ram are one of the most popular exotic game animals in the United States. And as any good hunter knows, knowing your animal is the first step to tracking it down.
Corsicans are horned rams that range between 130 and 160 lbs. for fully grown males. Their horns do not shed, but keep on growing throughout adulthood. Females, called ewes, average about 75 lbs., with slightly smaller horns. The horns range from 26 to 36 inches in length and can be tightly coiled or more flared.
A tough breed, you’ll need to be very careful with your shot placement to bring home your trophy. If you manage to wound one, they are likely to move faster and further than most other game, so your first shot is your best bet.
The eyesight on Corsican rams is also unparalleled, so finding a shooting position can be challenging. Remain vigilant and follow the same tactics you would use with other game. Find coverage downwind of the ram and wait for your shot. We also recommend wearing good boots, as you’ll be moving from area to area to keep up!
Corsican meat can be stringy and gamey, but many Middle Eastern and Caribbean dishes feature the goat. More often than not, this is a trophy hunt. Just remember that most Corsican trophies should have at least a 30 inch horn, with larger rams topping out at a whopping 40 inches.
