    Wow, congratulations Brian. First off, I've always enjoyed reading your write ups, and once again you didn't disappoint. I felt like I was right there with you for the highs and the lows. You hunted hard, and better yet you hunted safe..well done!

    I think it's incredible you stumbled upon that ram so low. Do you have any suspicions about why he was down there? Old and wise and just didn't want to hike back up after the mountain because he knew the snow wouldn't come again?

    And now the customary question...how old was he?

        No clue as to why he was down there, though he died with a mouth full of willow leaves - good feed, I guess?

        He was aged by F&G at 11 years. Broomed on both sides - 36" on the long side, 33" on the other.

                I'm going to be doing a full review of the super down gear, but the short version is that I'm highly impressed with it. I had the same concerns about the wet, humid conditions, but it performed beautifully. I'm convinced.

No doubt I worked my tail off in pursuit of sheep, but I can’t claim any special credit on this one – I was in the right place at the right time (on the way back to my truck, no less!), and was simply blessed beyond belief.







                            Heck of a ram Brian. And thanks for giving credit where credit is due. Rep points will be sent. :topjob:

                                Awesome story Brian.

                                I was exploring the DCUA and hoping to stumble into a bull moose on the 17th through the 20th.
                                The whole time I was wishing I could head up and chase sheep.
                                I was jealous before I knew what to be jealous of.
