    Just thought that I would post a little encouragement for all of you sheep hunters. I got these pics from another site. The young fella that got this ram is from central AB what a hog!!! Ram was shot in '07

    It is an excellent story I will find the magazine that featured it and let you guys know. I wish that one day I can connect with a ram of that caliber.

    My dad has an all time non-typical whitetail (228") from Alberta. It was #1 by a non-resident in 05 or 06.

    That is very cool.
