    That is great - what a fun goal, and you have made great progress! You are well ahead of me, I am shooting for the African 29 and NA 29. From seeing your reports I am confident you have secured your African 29, probably several times over! It is sure a lot easier to make progress with the African because of the ability to combine hunts. The NA sure has a lot of caribou moose - 10 of the 36 possible!

    Congrats on your ram. Love the mass and the fact that he carries it out so far. Great shooting. The right equipment makes it feasible to ethically take that kind of shot. Might not of taken that shot 10 yrs ago. He is a beautiful ram. From the sounds of his teeth he was the perfect one to take. Thanks for sharing.

    Well said @superdutch. The NA 29 no doubt poses unique challenges with such varying terrain and habitat that the quarry inhabit. Of course, throw in the fact the the weather during most North American hunting seasons is highly unpredictable. Good luck on the African 29, a worthy goal as well.

    Thanks Bruce, you are spot on about taking that shot 10 years ago - I would not have done it. But I shot 18 rounds three days before the hunt from 400-500+ yards with consistency so there was no hesitation on my part. As for the age of the ram, we initially counted 10 growth rings but on closer inspection the ram was aged at 13 years. I am honored to have collected such a fine trophy.
