Mailman\'s future ram spotted!

Went out shooting and forgot my damn dies so the range session was cut short so I decided to go look for some rocky mountain rams instead.

I found these guys out playing around and there just happened to be a monster in the herd. This big boy is the one that Karl Malone paid a rumored $75,000 to get to hunt this fall. He is around 180" with about 15.5" bases. He is king of the hill for sure. All the other rams followed him around everywhere but not too close!

Karl had dontated huge money to FNAWS here in Utah and paid for the majority of the sheep on this mountain so I guess it's fitting that he gets first crack at the big one a month before the other guy with a tag for this unit gets to hunt. Bad thing is, the next closest ram size-wise is not even in the same realm as big boy. I'm glad I didn't put in for this unit!

Do you know where there is a big desert sheep in the Kaipoworitz unit? I am only betting against 1:100 odds.

Re: Mailman\'s future ram spotted!

That is my favorite unit. We have taken two rams out of that unit including the unit record for the East.

You (being a non-resident) can hunt East, West, or Escalante sub-units. Most guys from out of state hunt the Escalante or the West as this is where the biggest rams are. If you put your time in and can make a long shot, you can score a Boone and Crockett ram in the Escalante.

There are rams in these areas that have never seen a human being and the hunt is rigorous, especially the Escalante Kaiparowitz sub unit. The East and the West units do have primitive roads but they are routinely washed out, and unimproved. You can hunt the East from a houseboat on Lake Powell but the waves that time of the year get pretty big and might strand you on a deserted beach somewhere.
This is some of the most remote country in the world but also some of the most beautiful.

Keep your fingers crossed. Somebody has got to draw that tag!

Here's where you'll be hunting. It is the haystack and you are after the needle:

Re: Mailman\'s future ram spotted!

I applied for East. For some reason the odds looked better.

I think I am going to apply for Desert bighorn in New Mexico and Nevada also.
