That ram is a tank!

Gary
One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset

Huge ram.

Congrats to @ramslam and @starbailey  for making this happen!
:fire.:

" 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

Thats a cool ram for sure.
Interesting when one of these stories pop up the amount of mud slinging that happens in comments. (I saw some negative comments in the page posted)

On one hand many WA residents could apply to special permits for a lifetime and never get drawn and even if they do its one and done, not counting raffles. Let alone afford guides to find such a brute. Seeing as this gentleman has killed 3 Bighorns here in 6 years I am guessing he spends alot of dough on raffle tickets and other things the likes of which many of us average guys/gals just can't afford.

On the other hand, this guy has likely put more money into WA Conservation/Sheep Conservation as a non-resident than many of us could do or will do in a lifetime.

Is it fair? I don't know.
Am I jealous? Oh ya
Am I mad? nope

Very cool writeup he had. Congrats to the hunter and I thank him for investing in our State.

If a guy has the resources to put that much into conservation, good on ya mate! Like most working class stiffs affording the $15 for a special draw is where most of us are.  What a Ram!

Im gonna get flamed for this , but thats Ok.

I get tired of hearing the "They put lots of money into Sheep conservation"......If they are really concerned about conservation, no one is stopping them from making a donation without the expectation of receiving a tag.  How many rams does an individual need to shoot?  To me it appears they are paying for their own personal enjoyment/hunting stock. 

Personally I am not a greedy dude, and would be happy to just have the opportunity to hunt sheep one time on my home turf.
 Even if i could afford to play these type of games, I would only do it once........no need to take opportunity away from my fellow hunters..............

Sharing resources and being considerate of fellow hunters is a long lost thing.

This was last years ram that was being pimped out to every high bidder that could be found . Congrats to the hunter on a true trophy. I wish that some of these raffle were limited to 5-10 tickets so it gave the rest of us a chance
