Anyone know for sure? We were told by a staff member at Kickapoo State Park that it was a Barbado, another hunter said no way it was a Mouflon and another said Corsican. From the research I've done I think Corsican. Edit: LOL a couple hunters said it was an Aoudad. Picture is my son.

Hybrid. Corsicans are reddish orange with a black belly.

I was on a lease next to the Kickapoo years ago that had a couple of large herds of Barbados and have a big ram on my wall from there. That does not look like a Barbado to me. While Barbados vary widely in color, I agree It looks like a Corsican. I would guess the staff said Barbado because there are so many in tne area.

Has some markings like a Mouflon...but I would guess a hybrid as opposed to a pure Mouflon. So Mouflon x Some other sheep like a Corsican

Corsicans are often the cross of a mouflon and a Barbado. That's why I think this is a Corsican in that it has markings closer to a Mouflon, but the horns that curve out like a Barbado. Most hybrid/crossed exotic sheep are considered Corsicans.
