Hunting the species
Multi Horned Sheep
Believed to be the oldest living specie of sheep, a breed of short tailed, woolly sheep, known since biblical times, in which the male normally has four individual horns growing from distinctly separate bases. Occasionally they have five or six horns. The two upper horns are larger and grow in almost any direction; the two lower horns are smaller and are usually Mouflon shaped. The Multi-horned Sheep is primarily a browser, eating a variety of weeds and grasses. During the summer months the sheep will water daily and during the cooler months they may go up to three days without watering. They have poor eyesight and bunch up as their primary defense. At maturity, breeding dominance is established by physical contact of butting heads.
Not particularly wary, they lend themselves to Spot and stalk hunting, but blinds can be utilized for hunters unable to walk. Rifles in the 6mm caliber and upwards are ample for hunting the Multi Horned Sheep. Typical shots will range from 75 to 200 yards. For bowhunters, the Spot and stalk method can be uses as well as blinds strategically placed near water holes or food plots.
