    What a nice ram! However looking at the Moose Rack you packed out I'm going to definitely be waiting on more pictures and the story on him as well.

    Congrats on what was obviously a phenomenal hunt.

    Have I mentioned I'm officially jealous yet? HA! gun)

    Man I thought the first Ram was a monster.

    What a great hunt for all involved.
