Mouflon hunts in Cordoba
Anyone with experience of hunting mouflon will have fond memories of tracking this exciting game species, as the smallest of all wild sheep has keen eyesight, excellent hearing and can detect even the slightest scent in the wind. Spain has the largest stocks of mouflon, along with Germany, Hungary the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Córdoba, a province in the north of Andalusia, is a top location for hunting mouflon rams. Our host Enrique owns an impressive 4,000 hectare hunting ground populated by wild boars, roe deer and mouflon. It takes a lot of skill to hunt in this terrain, as it is dotted with well-camouflaged spots. Hunters need to track doggedly, quite often on all fours. Hunting from a blind – a popular technique in Germany – is almost unknown in Spain.
