    I'm with you ikic, I'd take a quality mule deer hunt over just about anything, when my dad goes antelope hunting with me, he has to lower my spotting scope off the top of the mountain, refocus me.

    I put in for sheep in 4 states, I haven't caught the sheep bug, when I do, uh oh.... Same as elk hunting, I apply with no luck. I can't wait.


    As for the other topic, Let's not argue about ewww killed ewww, its supposed to be an appy occasion!

    This will really get the blood pumping guys. The ram is the world record scoring Bighorn from Alberta and the mule deer is the World record from Colorado. I heard a couple guys say that those big buck sure get a guy, well both of these should grab you!

    I should have put this one up there. Okay you are walking along looking for that really big ............ fill in the blank and you come upon this................in your dreams! Which one is your huckleberry? Oh so tough. They are each amazing. These are all current B&C World Records in their respective categories! Dall Sheep, Bighorn, Mule Deer typical, Whitetail typical, Stone sheep, and Pronghorn antelope. I just thought you guys might enjoy seeing this picture!





    I hope this brought us back to drooling and dreaming, and that's what it is all about!

    If that is the Chadwick ram, then I think he wins hands down.

    No one has killed many Dalls like that guy either.

    There have been lots of huge bighorns killed in Montana and Alberta, and the Genetics are there. So while he's not the easiest to get he's do able.

    I don't think anyone will ever kill another ram like the Chadwick ram.

    As for being booted off another forum, I have only posted on Accuratereloading, BlaserPro, Snipershide, and some trapping forums and never been booted anywhere.

    I am not anti-bowhunting, just pissed off by the lack of responsibility of bowhunters on TV, and "for a few select ones" real life. And I am not going to let someone tell me that bowhunting is the zen or e-ching of our sport, when I personally believe that select few are part of the problem. No different than people who wound game and log range, when they shouldn't have taken a shot in the first place, because they can't read wind.

    That is in fact the Chadwick ram. They all are amazing. I have another picture of that Montana ram with the 49" long horn. I'll see if I can find it and post it.



    My buddies ram that was 40 1/2" on the long side is dwarfed by the monster above his.

    I love sheep hunting. It is just addictive. However, why do i love it. Well i love the mountains, more than anything.
    The grand slam of wild sheep will take me to the mountains of north america. and the meat is outstanding.

    I am by no means rich. But when the opportunity strikes i take it. I won some money a couple of years ago. And when asked what i was going to do with the money i won. In my best disneyland voice : "I am going sheep hunting"
    they just looked at me.

    Guys that pick apart, and play class warfare with our small community are the real problem. Whether we hunt with a traditional bow, a compound bow, a cross bow, or a big bore, we ALL owe it to the animal to give it our best, and make the most ethical decision possible.

    I wouldn't get too excited about chowing on sheep if I were you. I've gotten 4 and 3 were pretty much flat out nasty, the 4th was an above treeling Wy ram that was ok- but I'd still reach for elk any day of the week. Now with that aside the hnt for sheep is great the animal is amazing and the country some of them live in is stunning (some are glorified desert- not that special) Their eyes make them an especially challenging bow quarry- especially if they are in groups. Second only to bird eyes if you ask me.
