California Bighorn State Record for WA?
« on: November 04, 2009, 06:42:36 AM »
Does anyone have information or a link to the state record entries for California Bighorn sheep?  I'm looking for information that'll tell me what the minimum score is for the yearly book as well as a breakdown of the top 10 Cali's in WA.

Thanks in advance.

there's a post on a different thread saying the record is 164 and change

Thanks, guys.  Hunted with a couple of lucky dogs yesterday in the Clemans unit and we knocked down a monster.  Green scored him and it looks like he'll go over 165.  Won't know for sure until it's official.

I know, I know.....pics.  This wasn't my hunt and won't post pics unless I get approval from the hunter. 

Stay tuned.

Thanks for the Top 10 breakdown.  They were getting him plugged today and in to the freezer asap.  I guess we'll see. 

Sorry about the lack of pics, guys--I know it's part of the Ten Commandments around here.

Are those gross or net records?  That ram probably won't net well.

It doesn't give net or gross it only has the measurements and Final Score.

Interesting that the #1 only has a spread credit of 20 7/8, almost 4" shorter than #2 and 5" shorter than #3

I don't know why they even list spread on sheep since it doesn't count in the final score :dunno:

Pretty sure those are net scores pope. Looks like they're using B&C score sheets with the deductions. I could be wrong though.

Net is bs with sheep.  I like the spread measurement because it helps to visualizE the ram and guess mass.

Yeah, supposedly they won't go over the ridge top and mingle with other herds...lol.  They are trying to work out the cali influence in that herd but I'm not sure how that's coming.

Most sheep have little difference between gross and net score compared to other species since only the differences in circumferences (and not lengths) are deductions. 

If all goes as planned a Rocky transplant will occur in the Tucannon later this winter.

I know this is a very old thread, but here is some info... there are now a few to add from the last few years, and even a couple from earlier than 2009.

http://www.nwbiggame.com/top_10.cfm

If you enter Washington and California Bighorn sheep you will see the top ten.



1) - 182 6/8
 2) - 181 0/8
 3) - 177 6/8
 4) - 177 5/8
 5) - 175 4/8
 6) - 174 7/8
 7) - 173 3/8
 8) - 173 2/8
 9) - 167 6/8
10) - 166 5/8




If its the one Pope is thinking of it should move into the top 9.
