    Wow.

    Speaking of 44inch rams.
    When I went in to get my ram sealed this year they had a 44 incher in the book. The F&G guy said that the two guys that brought it in also brought in a very small illegal ram. He said it was thier first time hunting or something to that effect. They didn't know what they had with either ram.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

    The first pic was 1 of two rams taken by a couple of guys from Valdez. Both rams have excellent compression. sweet.

    The first guy is my cousin-in-law-Doug Cranor.

    He gets them that big almost every year.
    He hunts in the Chugach.
    He hunts hard and goes far.

    The sheep I want to see is Jake Butler's Ram from
    Centennial Ridge.
    I heard that one went nearly 180 but is a park sheep and
    can't be entered.

    Those two sheep came out of the Chugach (open area). The 44" ram was taken by the non-resident brother of an Ak res. They stumbled on to it and essentially jump shot him at less than 50 yards. The sublegal ram was about 3/4 curl. Word is that they drove up to Fbks to have it sealed because they heard that it would be easier to get a sketchy ram sealed up there.

    Now we know "the rest of the story..." Well I guess thier plan didn't work.

    Default big sheep

    The first is a guy from Valdez. I know his brother in law from Glennallen. From what I understand, he only shoots big sheep, so it is no surprise. He flies hard and hunts hard.

    The second is a guy ( an Alaska resident) that moved up from Montana. A friend on mine. He obviously found an area where a big boy lived! Not sure where it is from. I won't ask that. He is a very good hunter and hunted hard. I haven't heard the story from him yet. All I can say is what a couple of awesome rams!!!!

    Default huge rams

    The pictures of the two rams are incredible. I know the person in the second picture. He is an amazing hunter and has taken 3 consecutive rams over 40". You would have a real difficult time trying to find a person more dedicated to hunting or as sucessful.
