CANADA'S PRIEMIER EXOTIC RAMS
The Corsican Ram has been coined "The Poor Man's Bighorn" as they are relatively inexpensive to hunt compared to the mighty Rocky Mountain Bighorn. The Corsican ram is a composite breed resulting from the crossing of some exotic breeds of sheep with the European Mouflon. They come in a variety of color patterns and are selectively bred for the trophy hunting market for their "regal set or horns" that can reach lengths of up to 40". The Corsican comes in several color patterns like the Blackbelly, Painted Desert, Texas Dall, and Black Hawaiian. We have all types available, but they are limited. Our Corsican's regardless of type will have some of the longest hair of any exotic sheep you will find in North America, something only the Cold Canadian winters can create!
Blackbelly Corsican Ram:
Native to the West Indies, the Barbados sheep crossed with the Mouflon a long time ago in Texas, has created the Blackbelly Corsican Ram. By far the most popular Corsican ram coloration pattern. As the name implies these rams have the black underbelly, inside of the legs, the back part of the thighs, and the hair inside the ears. With the rest of the body being a red-brown color with some white. Two black facial barbs extend down the muzzle medial to the eye, giving the breed an exotic "badger Like" appearance. Weighing in at near 200 lbs and having beautiful sweeping argali style horns that can reach 40 inches in length. This breed has a large "Lion" like manes of hair on the neck, called a "Ruff", making this breed an amazing mount in any trophy room.
About Corsican Ram Meat . . .
All breeds of Corsicans and Mouflons yield lean, delicate-flavoured meat with none of the “muttony” flavour, that many people find distasteful. The carcass is much leaner than domestic market sheep, and has a brighter red color. It resembled the carcass of a lean goat, and is often said by many people that the meat tastes more like beef than sheep.
PLEASE NOTE: All exotics must be "pre-ordered" before the guest arrives, and the hunt booked for that specific species. All species of exotics will be of exceptional trophy class, scoring well in the SCI Record Books. Please contact me so we can discuss what your expectations are and what I can deliver. Meat only animals will not be of trophy class, and the price will reflect this.
