Beautiful ram, awesome story and sounds like some great memories with friends and family. I'm no expert on scoring sheep but I'd say he is one for the personal record books anyway. Congrats gringo on doing an incredible tag all the justice it deserves

Gringo I've been busy with season and just happened to notice a sheep in your profile photo so went looking for this topic. That is awesome, looks like a good ram and sounds like you did it the way you wanted, couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.  :tup: :tup:

Had two video cameras.  This footage is from my brother who was filming the wrong sheep.  But caught the very end....   The "family show" comment was because I had torn the crotch out of my jeans big enough to put a basketball through...

Congrats on a beautiful ram... I'm glad you were able to experience that with folks that are so important to you!
I am not opposed to golf, for I suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering deer.

I think you wrote a very good story, probably most of us have had some of though same things happen in our hunts, I know it put a smile on my face to relive them.           

I to took my ram on the butte in 2013, it is a special place.      Thanks
