Interesting Corsican Sheep Hunting Information
The Corsican Sheep is the poor man’s Bighorn Sheep. For those of us who don’t have thousands of bucks to spend sheep hunting the Corsican is the answer. This sheep is probably the most hunted of all the exotics in the United States.
The Corsican is a hybrid sheep that began its history in Texas about 40 years ago. This popular addition to the exotics scene will usually be brown with a black or white belly. Males will often have long black hair on the neck that many call a ruff. The horn configuration on a ram can vary from a tight curl similar to a Mouflon sheep or wide and flaring. A mature Male will weigh in the vicinity of 140 pounds and the females will weigh around 75 pounds. Horn lengths on a trophy sized animal start at about thirty inches and exceptional specimens can grow horns that will score the 38 to 40 inch mark on a tape.
Corsicans are crosses from decades of mixing the shedding European mouflon sheep with most wool sheep, including Churro, Jacob, Merino, Horned Rambouillet, etc. Gestation is five months with 1-2 offspring being born. In 2009, the United Horned Hair Sheep Association, Inc., was established to promote all Corsican sheep.
