Arapawa Ram Hunting
Last updated on September 19, 2016
This breed of wild sheep were introduced in 1867 to Arapawa Island at the top of the South Island. Descendants of the merino sheep, their characteristic black wool, white blaze nose and spiralling horns curling between 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 turns they are a great hunt for all ages to add to your trophy making a nice European with a floor rug or shoulder mount.
Weighing in at around 200 lbs their wool grows long and matted giving them a rasta appearance. Hunting is spot and stalk with shots from 30 - 200 yards, ideal for bow hunting we judge them on mass of horn and number of curls.
