Hello I have a quick question on bow hunts. I am Going to the Goodman ranch soon for the Byron Ferguson Archery school and when I spoke to Mike I found out they have some Sheep hunts available. I had a couple questions and i was hoping some people that have hunted Rams could give me some advise.

My three questions:

1. My first question is which one would you go after and why?

2. I have never hunted sheep is there anything i should be practicing for besides Basic accuracy?

3. Do they have great Eye sight, Hearing or smell?

Has anyone here Bow hunted Rams? My Father hunted them years ago but did it with the rifle and I need to get much closer than the 200+ yards he did.

I have hunted both animals and I personally prefer the Corsican only because of their color phase! Just my choice. Eye sight is good but chances are they are used to people so I would just be quite and still. Good Luck.

Thanks, these are not used to people the breed and all that out there and do not have human interaction except for hunters. Thanks for the eye sight information I will make sure the Camo is good and be very quite.

Ya iv hunted Corsicans, Merino, Catalina goats, etc free range in west texas and guided hunts for them on a couple high fenced places (I know its frowned upon here) and I would say that they can be pretty tough to hunt you can fool their eyes by staying still but they can smell and hear pretty good. I like the dall just because I like the way the white coat looks lol Its a great off season hunt good luck!

Texas dalls are real pretty look good on wall. Black Hawians look even better on a wall. The good rams seem solitary from what Ive seen on the high fence place I hunt and seem to like open ground around them.Work on stretching your shots and be ready to stalk up if you can.Good camo and scent control are real important . Goats are even harder they never stop moving and circle when they are feeding like a hog to keep others off the food.
Good luck
