    I have been waiting for 17 years for the draw in the area this bugger is likely from. It will still take a few more.
    When I get that draw I know exactly where I will be spending a very large part of that year.

    I got to chase the current number three for several years.
    Wish I had digital photos of him to share.



    Damn this is a MONSTER Ram. WOW!
    I'll bet money he makes number 1.

    More pics of the Ram skull.


    Minister Campbell and Travis Ripley discuss record-breaking Bighorn Sheep skull found near Hinton. Alberta Fish and Wildlife officers have discovered a huge bighorn sheep skull near Hinton that has the potential to break the existing record for ram horns. The ram, which died of natural causes over the winter, had horns measuring 209 1/8 inches. The previous record, also from in Alberta, was 208 3/8 inches.

    The Minister looks just elated to be at the press conference with a skull and horns as the focus.
    Must really like his portfolio.

    thanks for sharing more pictures.

    It is an incredible animal.

    I guess I could live with one of those two little munchkins in the background of photo 4.

    Yeah, me too.

    We do not appreciate what we have here sometimes. When someone else points it out you have to shake your head.
