Mouflon Hunting, Croatia

Hunting Season: October 1st – January 31st

Forms of mouflon can be found in isolated pockets right across Europe and the Middle East into Central Asia. They are the most anatomically diverse wild sheep, amongst them the smallest ovis representatives in the World. With 17 subspecies across his range the mouflon can be easily divided into 3 categories. Urial, with the latin name vignei, Asiatic mouflon, with the latin name gmelini  and the European Mouflon, with the latin name aries. The European Mouflon is the direct link to today’s domestic sheep. During the Neolithic period,  c.6000BC, a feral population of semi-Domesticated sheep were introduced to the Mediterranean Islands of Corsica and Sardinia, it is the descendents of these sheep, encouraged by introductions on mainland Europe that make up the population of European Mouflon that can be hunted today.

The first introductions were made to mainland Europe in 1566 mainly for private collections or hunting reserves, with the first significant introductions occurring in, what is now, the Czech Republic in 1858; with most other populations arriving in the early 20th Century.
Due to the various stages of introduction on the continent and a lot of manipulative breeding that was done before release there are a number of varying horn shapes that the mouflon can grow across his range.

Mouflon in Croatia are found on several islands, and coastal hunting areas, as well as interior regions of the country. There is an estimated total population of 1600 Mouflon in Croatia, and all harvested animals must be measured and weighed to obtain more information on specific populations. You can expect altitudes of up to 1800m whilst hunting mouflon in Croatia,  but with good access roads into the grounds he is a perfectly achievable trophy for hunters of any age. Although there are good access routes a certain level of fitness is recommended.

There is also an option to harvest Wild Boar & Balkan Chamois on this hunt.
