The mouflon (Ovis aries orientalis group) is a subspecies group of the wild sheep (Ovis aries). The mouflon is thought to be one of the two ancestors for all modern domestic sheep breeds.

Mouflons are not indigenous to Hungary. Here, they were first naturalized at the end of 18th century by Count Forgách, to the mountainous regions of the north of the country.

Their habitats are steep mountainous woods near the tree line. In winter they migrate to lower altitudes. In Hungary the best stocks live in Mátra, Bükk, Pilis, Bakony and Zemplen mountains. Due to the efforts made by specialists, mouflons can be spotted almost everywhere in the hilly regions. The usual way of mouflon hunting is stalking; therefore, it requires good physical condition from hunters wishing to stalk down a mouflon. If requested, ATVs and horse carriages can be used for hunting. The high season is in November and December.  A Moufflon hunt can also be perfectly combined with a deer and a wild boar hunt.
