    Well after 3 hunts I have succeeded in getting my dream sheep in the Northern Cape. I can understand why there is dedicated sheep hunters the world over, it is by far the most fun you can have with your clothes on! Hard hunts and very attractive animals. My dad also succeeded in getting a lovely sheep. Except for the hunting part I also bought a new breeding ram for the sheep on our property in the FreeState. His name is Titan and he measures a staggering 34 3/4 inches making him the second biggest for South Africa, the biggest one resides in Gauteng and also are alive! My sheep that I shot came in just over 30" and my dad's was 28"

    Congrats for the sheep, they are beautiful animals. I have two mouflons (corsican sheep).

    I hope Titan has many offspring, and some of us are able to hunt them someday :thumb:

    You do have to love sheep hunting.

    Congrats on two fine rams.


    You keep this breeding program going your going to have monsters of a lot of species soon enough.
