Milt Sanburg outside of Montrose, Colorado had a herd of mouflon sheep. Rocky Mountain bighorn rams from the nearby national forest periodically came over and bred a number of ewes. The result was 10 to 15 rams and ewes that were 1/2 bighorn and 1/2 mouflon. The rams were very impressive!
Alan Baier of Collbran, Colorado and myself met with the Colorado Fish and Game. They were anxious to get the crossbreeds out of Colorado. An agreement was reached to transport the sheep to my ranch in Texas.
In recent years I have attempted to replace the mouflon portion of the sheep with a larger breed of sheep- Stumberg Sheep. I have also purchased Urial rams to do the same thing.
The results have been fantastic! Heavy bodied rams with large think horns have been harvested. A limited number of trophy rams are available to hunt for $2900 plus a $250 per day guide fee.
Stocking age live ewes and young rams are available for $350 each f.o.b. our barn.
