A while back I posted asking how everyone likes Dall Sheep. My daughter and I ended up harvesting a Hybrid Mouflon ram that was right at 3 years old. We made steaks out of the backstrap (tenderized them, put blackening seasoning on and grilled) and they turned out fantastic. Made enchiladas out of the hams and they too turned out awesome. The front legs were taken out on impact, so didn't get to sample them!

Just a little info. We aged the meat in the garage fridge for 8 days on the steaks and 10 days on the hams. Very tender and flavorful meat.

You did the right treatment for the meat. I have hunted many sheep in their natural Habitat.
They all taste awesome.However age factor is most important.

Rule of thumb,"If you are a trophy hunter you will seldom get good meat." juggle

Pittstate, my experience with eating sheep has been the same as yours. I can tell you took the time to clean it and process it correctly. That is as key as the prep of it to eat is.

The sheep I took was almost 100% mouflon, probably 80 or higher.

I grew up eating Mouflon. Corn fed makes for good eating.

My dad raised them. He had an arrangement with some guys out of San Antonio for several rams a year. They claimed to go sheep hunting every year. They would call my dad and tell him when they would be stopping by on their way home from their "hunting trip" elmer. He'd call the sheep up to the gate with feed and shoot the one with the best spiral (with a .22 pistol ) . He'd cape and quarter it, and pack it on ice. They would show up, transfer it to their ice chest and transfer a roll of $100 bills to my dad.

We ate a couple of the young ewes each year, and any rams that were developing wimpy racks.

Probably 75% of it went on the pit. Entire hind quarter and ribs...just like you would BBQ pork

I made breakfast sausage and burger out of a mouflon, it was good, I've also made jalapeño and cheese link sausage and chili meat,and burger meat out of an auodad, it all tasted good!
Edit to add: it's all about how you take care of the meat after the kill, I've never eat a bad tasting boar hog either, all very good

Sheep are too stupid to eat. There may be a human transference of the stupid they are stricken with. It's medically not sound to eat sheep. In fact I'm not sure I haven't lost some IQ points over the years from wearing wool socks so I started wearing them over cotton socks so there is no skin contact.
