I'll go with 164 6/8's. Great ram, no matter what he scores. Look's like an old warrior.

Re: Dads 2009 Ram

Dads dilema was this. His wife had just killed her ram with her bow a couple of days earlier. He really wanted to kill one with a bow. However, the reality of being 63 and probably not ever having another tag was sinking in after 5 days in the blind.

That morning he was still hunting with a bow but said he would take a B&C ram with a rifle should we not be able to get close enough with a bow.

When the dust settled for the day he killed it at 310 yds with my 243 that now has 3 Desert Sheep kills all from the same mountain.

You are correct that the score does not matter. Now that the hunt is over it gives us something to talk about since we cant hunt them for quite a while.

15" bases 37" left horn 32" right horn

B&C total green-------about 174"

Here is somthing you wont believe, Dad has drawn three Desert sheep tags here in Nevada. One in 1967 for an area where none of the hunters killed a ram. One in 1982 when he killed a 165" ram and this one. He has been guiding since the 80's and has been on 68 Desert bighorn hunts mostly in Nevada as well as several other hunts for Rocky Mtn, California, and Dall sheep.

It meant a lot to me to be there for this one.

Re: Dads 2009 Ram

Great story Dennis, That is an awesome desert ram!

If you average both my estimates I'm only 1 point off

Congrats again to your dad
