Rams average 70 pounds while the ewes average 50 pounds and ewes have no horns. They have longish legs thus look bigger than they actually are and their hair is fur like, like rabbit fur.

Herds consist either of ewes with only one adult ram who remains in his area / territroy with the ewes, while the ewes will cross other ram territories, or bachelor herds of young rams only.

The scent gland is between the hooves on all 4 feet - called pedal glands.

They live in both rocky bushy hills and mountains and graze in the open in early morning, night and evening.

When hunting, shots are mostly taken at 150-350 yards, and they are hard to see as they blend in well with their surroundings. They are a great species to spot and stalk, they have tremendous eye sight and their flight is usually a very long run away from the hunter.

They eat bushes mostly and do not need to drink any water.
