    The Cadomin Coal mine site in Alberta is home to the Current World's record Bighorn.
    The mine site itself is a sanctuary where there is no hunting. Many of the huge rams
    never leave the mine site. This winter many of the old rams died or were killed by
    wolves. This photo is of some of the big rams that went to Bighorn heaven this winter.
    I am sure that there are readers out there who were lucky enough to purchase one of
    the special permits to hunt this area that will be interested in seeing this great photo.

    I am a sheep hunter and past guide Bighorn Guide here in Alberta.

    Now we were assured when we got our wolves from Canada, they only ate roots, berries, and the odd mouse or two. We were also told they had no effect on Canadian game populations. LOL. Good picture thank you. Sure a shame some hunter didn't get a chance of a lifetime to pursue them.

    Amazing.

    There is no doubt where the sheep get the "Bighorn" name!
