    I hope to find one soon also!
    Most of the state is open year 'round over the counter for Barbary sheep.
    Makes a nice spring hunt.

    What do the tags cost? What are the success rates?

    Coues man,

    Have you hunted them in the Lincoln National forest down where the Guadalupe Mts. are ?

    I was told by the N.M. game and fish there are some really good rams there in the more rugged areas . You guys down there in New Mexico have some really good hunting opportunities !

    Did you get Troy Floyds ( the ranch where Scott and I hunted ) phone number from the Roswell G&F ?

    Screech ,

    The rifle specs are as follows :

    Builder - Chris matthews -Longshot
    Rifles
    Broughton 5c bbl. 28"
    11 twist
    Remy accurized action
    Jewell trigger 14 oz.
    McMillan A5 std l.o.p.
    Badger base and rings
    Leupold mk 4 8.5x25x50
    Of course it is pillar and skim bedded . This was my first custom rifle and I doubt I will ever top it . It has been a solid performer from the beginning . Load developement found many very accurate loads with different bullets and powders.
