Dads 2009 Ram





Lets play guess the score.

This is the ram my Dad killed on Thanksgiving day 2009. We hunted 6 days. Four days in the blind at the waterhole and two days spot and stalk. He tried to kill one with a bow but said he would shoot a big one with a rifle if he couldn't get close enough with the bow.

Re: Dads 2009 Ram

This ram looks very similar to mine. The horn structure, length and mass seem to be very similar. This one is a little older. Mine was 6 1/2. I make this one out to be 9 1/2? The 4th anulus seems to be very short unless I'm mistaken and only appears to be an anulus? The pach of fur running between the bases looks slightly wider than on mine and they were 16 4/8 and 16 2/8. These I'll guess to be about 16. The horn length on mine was 38 1/2 and 38 and I am guesing the same one this one. There looks to be slightly more mass toward the ends of these horns and it is broomed slightly more than mine.

Mine scored 185 1/8, so I'm going to guess 185 for this one also.

Very nice ram, congrats to your dad

Mark

Keep in mind that it's a Desert Sheep and the bases are not that big.

Re: Dads 2009 Ram

I dont know how to score a desert sheep but that ram looks really nice to me. Congrats to your Dad. The memories of that hunt are not going to change because of a higher score or a lower score. But I agree with you, it gives the trophy a little more excitement.
Enjoyed reading, keep us posted on what did it actually scored.
