Corsican ram hunts are one of our popular packages at Tioga Ranch. Some hunters may not be familiar with these game animals, so this is an overview of Corsican rams.
Corsicans were originally introduced in Texas where they were the result of cross-breeding between Mouflon Sheep and a number of other breeds.
An Overview of Corsican Rams
Corsican rams eat primarily grass and forbs, but also eat leaves that are close to the ground or fallen. These rams typically drink water every day, but are able to go two or three days without water during cooler weather.
The breeding season for Corsicans is late summer or early fall, with a five-month gestation. Offspring are usually delivered during the winter.
Coloring on Corsican rams varies, and includes brown, tan, and a reddish color. They are adorned with an attractive black mane that is on the front of their necks. Most rams have a tight curl, but some do flare. Our rams have at least a ¾ curl before we start hunting them, but most have at least a full curl. Mature Corsican rams may weigh up to 125 pounds.
Hunting Corsican rams is sure to be a great hunt. These animals tend to group together and flee as a herd when spooked so hunting them requires patience to successfully stalk and get a shot.
