    AndresRam, thanks for sharing your picture and memories of your father with us. Many of us here can relate to having had great experiences growing up and hunting with our fathers. Yeah be sure to keep the droolers away at a safe distance so they don't ruin a great trophy, an all around favorite...

    beermonky, when hunters hear stories like yours it makes them believe that it can happen to them too... thanks for keeping hopes alive!

    Welcome to the both of you.

    Beermonkey,
    Man you are one lucky guy, I would give my right something or other for your permit, remember I am a booking agent and that puts me out of the $71,000 dollar class of hunts..I did shoot a ram in Mexico many years ago on our ranch So. of the Big Bend Nat;l. Park..

    Andres,
    That is one good ram and one awesome background in the picture. My dad had a ranch leased in Mexico at one time and the hunting was fantastic in the Sierra Del Carmins behind boquillas. We hunted bear, mule deer (Crooki), Coues deer that SCI has renamed Del Carmin whitetails ( actully the breeding stock of these deer were brought into the Big Bend National park from Arizona by FDR as part of the CCC camp program) and they migrated into Mexico over the years..My dad and uncles drove the trucks that brought them to the BBNP...

    I worked as a kid on the Black Gap Game Reserve with the deer and sheep. Those sheep have had a hard time surviving the Lions and desease over the years. The Sierra Diablo sheep were native to start with and they have done much better.

    I recently saw a movie with Tommy Lee Jones called the Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada. It was made on the Rosillas Mountain Ranch that borders the Big Bend National Park and featured the town of Boquillas Mexico..It was like a tour of my old home...I had the Rosillas Mountain Ranch leased for cattle for a number of years in the early 70s. Raised my kids there.

    Man, this is like old home week...

    Mr. Atkinson, yeah I know one hell of an old battled out Mexican desert Big Horn Sheep right! This one was hunted in Sonora's Sierra del Viejo.

    It's funny you should mention it because exactly a year ago I was hunting the mountains of Sierra del Carmen, or Carminis as you call it! It is one of the most wonderful places I have ever seen, the landscape is simply breathtaking, not to mention all the amazing game all around!
    I shoot a very good Carmen Mountain's Whitetailed deer on a slow trot about 130 yards on the second to last day of a 7 day hunt with Ranch owners Charlie and Isabel Sellers, a couple of very very nice people wh run an awesome operation in a 14,000 hectare cattle ranch called "La Escondida", the hunt was fantastic and I saw many many deer every day, I also saw cougar, bear, and many more game animals but the hunt was for Carminis Deer. I will try to post a picture or two of the hunt!
    Anyway Thanks for the reply and hope to share some more hunting stories (and maybe hunts!) with you in the future!

    Cheers and good hunting!

    Andres Santos S.
