    I second that! I suspect this story will decrease our collective odds of getting one of those permits (I have been putting in for a half dozen or so years now), but dang, that is one heck of a nice ram! Sounds like it was a pretty tough hunt too. I hope the hunter is a member and can post the details here.

    The "prequel" link I posted is actually written by the hunter and is the story of the whole trip. He's a pretty good writer and really draws you into the story and makes a guy feel the adrenalin and exhaustion. Doesn't gloss over his mistakes either. I like it.

    Thanks for posting that second link. The story as the hunter tells it is way better! Man....that was some nutty stuff by the sounds of it. Actually, it reminded me a lot of my first sheep harvest with the exposed stalk across shale, long-distance shots, shakes so bad you can't keep the scope still, tough pack out on a walk-in hunt, etc. Very good stuff.

    Can anyone find me a link to the Brooks range huge ram from this year? My computer will only go back 9 pages and I can't find it. I would love to read that story again as well.
    Thanks

    Excellent story to follow up the photos. It's so painful reading the comments of the "non-hunting" crowd. A young man with outdoor skills, work ethic and family values heads out into the hills and kills a great ram and they have a way of simplifying the act and calling it "pathetic".

    Whats wrong with getting a little prize with your happy meal? Thats the way I see it. He earned every ounce of his sheep meat and now has a cool majestic mount to show for it. Good for him!!!! Way to go!! Atta Boy!!

    I'm getting more and more intollerant of the Anti's.

    I saw that ram on the boone and crockett trophy watch page. Pretty impressive ram indeed. Here is the link.

    Congrats for sure. Read it in the ADN and couldn't help buy answer one loony tune comment. The anti's are everywhere who would rather have someone else do their killing for them.

    Ditto! Sure glad I drew tma this year. Can't imagine how many applicants there will be for it next year.

    This thread should be deleted do to this fact!

    Come to think of it I am going to put in a proposal to the BOG I am sure they will address this issue for me since they are so good at giving in to everyone else that cries to them.

    Great Ram! I need to add blue jeans to "must have" items for next year. In Hunter Education classes they teach that "Cotton Kills". For this hunter it should say "Cotton Kills Giant Ram". No Sitka or other over priced/hyped gear needed. Just hard work and determination. Congratulations to the hunter.

    Yup, someone gets a big ram and all hell breaks loose! Just like the Brooks next year! That big ram will increase sheep hunting by twofold up in the Brooks next fall. There will be a lot of disappointed hunters!!! But that will keep them away from me!
