An update to this thread:

After another good spring and summer of growth, Karl's ram put on another .5" more mass in the bases and became an absolute monster.

Karl shot him on the 5th of October and I just got the scoresheets back this week. His ram went an incredible 188.5"!! So much for full curls! This is an automatic entry to the B&C for Karl. The sheep was 9 1/2 years old was was one of the original sheep that Karl helped put on the mountain way back in the mid 90's.

The other guy who drew this tag (Karl bought his tag) got to hunt a month after Karl had already shot the biggest ram but still managed to pull out a 176.5" brute out of the same herd. That ram is the lighter colored ram under the big one and to the right in my fourth picture. He was a great ram too.

Now the biggest ram in this herd I have seen since these two were killed is around 172" and a great looking, boxy and square horned ram. I managed to sneak in above him last week and take some cool pictures of him:

I wish my camera was a super nice one for great pictures but I decided instead to get a lightweight, small camera simply for backpacking. It is a Minolta Dimagex with a Minolta 5.7-17.1mm lens. Then there are some other numbers underneath that I have no idea what they mean. They are 1:2.8-3.6

And I believe it is a 3 megapixel too.

That is exactly the same camera that I carry on my belt when hunting. I like it a lot for this purpose.

The mystery numbers refer to the speed of the lens.



From my Montana hunt. Six or seven images stitched together in a panorama shot.

You must have been pretty close to those sheep.

Len,
Does your camera have a hard time when it's cold out? I usually can turn mine on and as soon as I go to zoom, it says the batteries are exhausted and shuts off even when I just charged them up. Perhaps my batteries are bad but they last for days when it is warm outside.

That is a cool panaramic picture by the way!

Thanks

My camera stays under my jacket so I suppose the battery is warm. On mine it is a single lithium battery which holds charge the best of any in cold weather.
