Ours was aged at 9. Counting rings it looks to be 9 1/2. He's 2" past full curl but still had his lamb tips

Some people can't take a bit of scrutiny from others, oh well. Let's all pat each other on the back and strap the knee pads on tight cause this glee club is kinda like today's youth, no backbone! Peace and love. Peace and love . Good night ladies it's been a slice👙👌.

I will address some of your concerns. We are 6 close hunting friends that started a team, because we figured it would be fun. It gives us a vested interest to help one another get nice animals on camera etc. So as a team we have this "username" and we all have access to it. When I started to write that post I was talking from the perspective of the team. I then switched to talking about "my ram" which was a mistake by me. Hopefully that clears it up for you guys on that part. As for the taxidermy quality. I will put better pictures up soon that won't be a quick iPhone picture. We are all very impressed with this mount. I realize that there are people on here that only like the work that certain members on here do. That is fine, you can do your taxidermy with them. We have our guy, and we are happy with all 4 mounts he did for us last year (we will be posting the rest in due time). We know there are other great taxidermy shops out there and we appreciate the work they do. We love seeing the pictures, so please keep them coming.

PS: the hunt was definitely a team hunt! Solo sheep hunters are few and far between. I respect the guys that manage to do solo hunts, as it it would be a large undertaking. We love sharing the experience with our close hunting friends, so that is the way we choose to do it.

People shouldn't be arguing on here. Hunting is getting enough criticism on social media these days. This is a hunting community, and for most part it is a joy to see pictures and read threads on here. Let's keep it that way. Criticism isn't a bad thing either, so if there are questions or concerns then feel free to post them. No need to argue or insult each other is all
I request.

Happy trail camera season!

Great looking sheep, I lost my Big horn to the fire this year. Planning a couple trips this fall to try and get a replacement.

My first Alberta ram - a great many moons ago...



Couple of BC Stones for you...

I inherited this Fine Fellow's rifle, the one in this picture. It is currently undergoing reconstructive surgery. One of many great rams he took with it:



Another Buddy's very first. Heading out with him again this August, but this one will be rather tough to beat...



Cheers,

Don't rightly recall the actual scores off hand. Will ask these Gents when i see them next...

And yeah, the middle one was 44+ inches.

Here's a couple pix of a live NWT Dall that went well over 44"...
Excuse the poor scanning job - all I have left after I lost the originals when moving south...
