French Mainland Corsican Mouflon Hunt

Adventure Description

Historically, Mouflon sheep were imported to the Mediterranean Islands (Corsica, Sardinia, Cyprus) during Neolithic times, around 6,000 - 7,000 BC. At the beginning of the 18th century, these mouflons were introduced into several parks and zoos in Eastern and Western Europe and later into free range areas. At first, they were crossbred with domestic sheep and Asian sub-species, to improve the quality of their trophies which resulted to a loss of their Corsican origins. Hence now, they are recognized as European mouflon. However, starting in 1935 pure Corsican Mouflon from the Island of Corsica have been introduced to several areas in southern France (Alps, Pyrenees and Massif Central). Those mouflons have mostly Corsican Mouflon genetic endowment and, with their habitat relatable to that of their Island of origin, has helped retain a phenotype very similar to that of pure Corsican mouflons. This observation led to the Ovis Grand Slam Club classifying the mouflon sheep of southern France into a separate subspecies as: “French Mainland Corsican Mouflon”. With outstanding surroundings, the French Mainland Corsican Mouflon can be hunted in the south of France at several free range areas situated in Alps mountains, Pyrenean mountains and Massif Central mountains. This preferred outfitter is proud to announce that in partnership with the GSCO the French Outfitters Association (FOA) that they are initiating several conservation programs in order to protect the French Mainland Corsican Mouflon Sheep living in free range areas of southern France. Currently, the population situation of the French Mainland Corsican Mouflon is raising concern because of a strong increase in wolf population and because of some loss of habitats. In agreement with the GSCO a 4,000 USD fee will be collected per Mouflon taken and deployed by the French Outfitters Association (FOA) into the conservation programs.
