Title: Sons Sheep Ram Tag
Post by: mp.hunter on August 28, 2021, 02:48:07 PM
  I figure I should start a thread on this hunt that is quickly approaching. My son (12) drew a Ram tag this year and he is excited to say the least, although Iím certain he really doesnít realize how lucky he is, even though I tell him all the time. I have been on one sheep hunt before in 2006 as my dad drew a Lincoln Cliffs tag that year and it was a blast. I have been looking over many sheep so far this summer so it will be a real challenge to decide at this point which sheep we want to take. I have the green light to pull him from school for a few days so we will be in the field the first 4 days of season.

I will try and post more later of some others as we get closer to the opener.

This is awesome! Almost bittersweet, not old enough to know how lucky he is to get the experience, but also that he does get the experience! Iím sure youíll make the most of it for him and itís going to be something he will always remember. Good luck and have fun!

Congrats what tag to have !! Enjoy every minute. I'd bet the two biggest rams on the butte will be dead before your hunt starts with the raffle tags so find a good #3 . Its only gonna be a few inches of difference so find the character he likes.. I am jealous..

 Yesterday we watched the other tag holder shoot a ram which we helped walk him into position and he shot a great old ram. It was pretty neat as he had his two sons with him and they were very excited. We searched all over yesterday looking for the next level sheep, but really couldnít turn it up. My son was ready to kill a ram and we agreed itís up to him to decide but wanted an old mature ram.

We headed off this morning knowing of some sheep that were contenders but wanted to cover some country by foot to look into some nooks and crannies for those we couldnít glass. Sure enough we found four we had not seen before and two looked good. We sat on them for some time as these things do not spook to bad if you are calm. There was this ram and another that almost looked heavier but was very broomed off. This one is a shorter side but on long side, and a much prettier coat. The sheep finally caught our wind and booked around and came above us, which was nice because we could drag it down to the road. We finally made the decision to kill this ram. We got to 120 and had to wait for them to not group up and James let him have it, double lung 15yard and cart wheel sheep. What a great hunt and James my son is one happy camper.
