    We need a story, man!

    Congratulations on a fine ram. Do you have any pictures taken from the front? Looks like he has a bit of flare on those horns.

    Sure, I'll try and make it short. We flew in on Aug. 26th, and made it about 6 miles or so before making camp on the same side of the mountain as 3 rams were feeding and eventually bedded down. Got up the next morning and watched 2 of those rams for a couple hours before making a stalk to determine if they were legal or not. We got to with in about 250 yards and hung out behind a rock for 2 hours watching them (they had no idea we were there). One was definately not legal and the other we just couldn't tell 100% for sure. Then out of no where the third ram that we had seen the night before popped up. It took about a millisecond to determine he was legal and I shot him at 218 yards. He was standing on a little bench and immediatly dropped. Unfortunately instead of listing to his left side and against the mountain, he listed to his right side and fell of the bench. He free fell a ways before landing in the scree shoot and creating a rock slide that sounded like the mountain was falling apart. He was pretty messed up to say the least as he took quite a beating. I wasn't able to salvage the cape, so I'm now looking for a cape for a shoulder mount. He is 38" on the right, 37.75" on the left, and 13" bases.
    Aged at 9-10 years depending on who I was talking to at F&G.

    They actually did a little. You can kind of see it in some of the pics. I think they can be fixed though, don't know for sure.

    The taxi will be able to take care of the damage to the horns, no problem.

    Mine has a bullet hole in the horn that blew out a 2 1/2 inch hole on the back side, from my first shot. I havn't decided whether to fix it yet or not.

    Horn damage is part of the story and the beauty of the animal, as far as I'm concerned. My last sheep took a nasty fall and broke the first four inches of one horn almost completely off, but it is still hanging on by a thread. I've left it that way, as it is part of the story. Personal preference...

    Well done. My DCUA hunt was similiar in that we watched two rams for 4 hours before they got up and fed out of sight. Just when we thought the hunt was over the ram I harvested appeared. Luck can sometimes play into the hunt as it did with mine.

    Congrats....
