    Hi Gents,
    these days I found two old (Polaroid-) Pictures in a box, with the alleged world recod on dall sheep.
    I got the pics from a taxidermy in the early 80is.
    191 Boone + Crocket Points , a little bit more than Harry Swanks sheep from 1961.
    I can't remember about more circumstances.
    Maybe one of you are interested on the pics and knows more.

    It's amazing how animals will sit put where they know they won't be hunted. It isn't a shadow of that picture, and there isn't a ram to be seen but this is in the Rockies in a national park. They'll sit 30 yards away and stare at you, head outside the park and they practically run before they see you.
