Thanks folks!  I wish everyone had the opportunity to go after this unique species.

Beautiful ram, what a great end to your fall.

End to my Fall?  :dunno:  Haha.  My wife wishes!!! :chuckle:

I still have elk and waterfowl and maybe an assist or two on some OIL tags.

Thank you.

And yes, it's definitely legal if that's what you were wondering.  Note that the head is turned slightly, which makes it seem even closer to the imaginary line than it actually is. To paraphrase what the biologist said, it was something along the lines of: "Wow!  That's a really nice one.  Congratulations!"

Congrats on your ram.. Can you educate me on how or why WDFW decides to allow taking a juvenile ram rather than a ewe on these hunts. I am not a sheep expert but the areas I have been in and sheep I have looked at it would seem like if we are going to cull sheep from our herds it would not be a perfect immature ram that could be the next 180 ram but would be broken older ram that none of the ram tag holders want to shoot.? I'm not pointing a finger at the hunter I am just confused at the logic of WDFW on this when we can't seem to get sheep numbers high enough to continue to raise tag numbers over the years in our state.
