Just thought Id share some pics of some Mouflon Rams.
that's some serious serious moofy..
Stunning set of horns....
Yep there are some nice rams to be had,
I was supposed to be out hunting them last week but (other) work got in the way and so it looks like I need to wait a few months until autumn before I get a chance at one.
The 260 is all set though....
The other advantage of shooting one in Portugal is that the taxidermist we use there is excellent and half the price of getting a mount done in the UK - Mouflon rams look fantastic as chest mounts.
I had two stand in front of me in Poland when on a driven boar shoot once.
I was privileged to see them as they stood the other side of a bit of scrub and probably thought I couldn't see them.
They came running towards me and then stood playing 'peek - a - boo' for a second or two the took off like rockets.
When on a driven boar shoot I always ignore every thing else, even a wolf on one occassion, got a b***ng for that tho.
The agent said 'pigs only' because he wasn't sure of the guns and erred on the safe side to prevent any dogs being shot.
Later when I spoke to a German speaking forester, he said they wanted it shot as it had been marauding for a few weeks now but none of the foresters had had any luck in finding it !!
