I drew 26 in 09'. As i worked in Big Creek for an outfitter i was there all season and about 2 weeks ahead of season scouting. It was a very hard hunt and the sheep were few and far between. Once season started i was guiding elk hunters so i couldnt hunt for myself much. I finally got a week right before the end of the season and was able to find a ram. Wasnt a big one, but with the amount of effort i put in i have no regrets on pulling the trigger. I did hear that in the 26 late tag, someone dropped a monster. I am not sure which 27 tag it is, but i know one of the head guys for the middle fork lodge, and in the past few years they have taken 3-4 rams for clients that scored between 166-178. Those guys know the country very well though, and put in lots of days scouting before hunters show up. In all, yes i believe the numbers are down and the hunt is hard. You would need to devote a good chunk of time if you want a quality ram.
