Thread: Short Sheep Story and Pics

  1. #1

    Default Short Sheep Story and Pics

    Went to same area as last year, spotted sheep on day 1 , harvested sheep day 2, packed out and home to beer and pizza on day 3. No wind, rain, cold, or hot weather. I'm sure a hunt this easy and fast will NEVER happen again, I guess I had paid my dues on many other hunts.

    Need a hunt partner for year three?

    Seriously though, nice sheep! What did F&G age him at? I'm seeing a definite 8, possibly 9?

    Could you help by marking the rings?

    I'm not gonna mark it up myself as I'll probably get it wrong but I see it as a 8 year old myself.

    Maybe someone can print this up and take it to the sheep seminar happening in Anchorage in a little over a week and see what the guy putting that on might say, or Tony Russ or something. Obviously full curl and I feel its 8 as well and a very nice sheep "all the way around", pun intended.

    Congrats again Skwentaman!

    Well, you dont need to count rings in this case and its risky business. The first pic clearly shows how a line across the bases connects to the tips of the horns. The second is more difficult cause of the angle, but if viewed from the side as a full circle would easy make a full curl. A mature ram and a good harvest!

    I don't believe anybody is doubting full curl status as that seems pretty obvious. Just folks curious about the age of the animal....

    Yep - no different really than guessing the width of a bull moose with four brow tines - it's fun and a good training opportunity.
