Re: #5 Bighorn Ram

That was a ram that died of old age a couple of years ago. I forget where he was from but the biologists were watching him near daily untill he died. He was then collected by the local biologists.

    That looks like the old ram that lived west of Pueblo West on Ft Carson and along the Arkansas River bluffs. He died last summer and was oldest ram in Colorado. I forget what he scored.
