Sicily, separated by the main land only by the narrow strait of Messina, is the southernmost region in Italy as well as the largest island in Mediterranean Sea. Sicily is characterized by one of the most various landscapes in Europe, varying from the great Mediterranean coasts through the dry inland to the highest active volcano in Europe. Despite this great variety, Sicily is also one of the driest regions in Italy and most wild animals find a difficult habitat. Mouflon sheep and wild boars are the one that better adapt to this dry countryside and their number increased to became some of the greatest population in the whole country.
Mouflon hunting, as well as wild boar hunting, is mainly conduced at sunrise and sunset when the animals get out of the woods to move towards the open areas. Despite mouflon mainly move in small herbs and, in some cases, even during the day, the mouflon hunt is one of the most difficult as the animals are extremely suspicious and the smallest movement of the hunter will result in a breathlessly run.
