I think it will change again this year. 8)

Mine's not listed in there - how do I get it listed? I think it would be #6.

Have it officially scored at one of the Sportsmens shows or by an official measurer. I think Bow4Elk Tom Ryle is/was a measurer, then I think you pay the $20 and have it entered?
Something along those lines.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

My ram should be in there, I paid the $20!  I believe when I killed him he was around 6, but I'd be lucky to be in the top ten now, lol.

I see Casey Brooks on this list.  I think he had a whole slug of Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young awards under his belt.

Aaron Roth's CA bighorn from the Swakane unit (Chelan County) rifle 2010 was reportedly a World Record. Seems like his ram would be the State Record as well.  The ram taken this year from the Swakane is nearly as big.  Here are photos of Aaron's ram.

What is your definition of "nearly"?

 Those records posted are from the Northwest Big Game Record Book that is at the Puyallup Sportsmen's Show every winter. If it's not measured and recorded there it won't be in their book. I'm sure there are bigger and better out there than what's listed in their books but that's what they go by. It's a lot easier and cheaper to get it in the NW book than the Boone and Crockett. I put my bear in there but I don't think I'll put it in B&C just because of all the hoops you have to jump through and the extra money. By the way, I think the NW Big Game Book is represented at most of the sportsmen shows around the NW. I think they cover CA, Ore, Id, and WA.

I think Aarons record will hold in Washington forever.  Unless for some reason they close a unit down again for several years.   Every ram that is even potentially as big is accounted for and tagged in short order.

B&C and P&Y do not recognize Cali Sheep as a seperate species is why, only SCI and individual states do.

I agree.

I doubt that record will ever be broken in Wa.

The true eye sees not the despair of its victims, only the elegance of equilibrium. It's a demonstration of superior judgement.

Never mistake motion for action.
