    Well after hunting for 3 weeks I finally got my ram. My hunting partner got his opening day. I got mine 19 days later. My partner got not only his first ram, but his first long range trophy. He bagged it at 600 yards. I got mine at 300 yards. Finally!! a close range harvest!! I video taped his harvest with a 20 power zoom and used a tri-pod, you can actually see the vapor trail (air disturbance) and the trajectory of the bullet on the video!!

    I had to spend 2 nights without a tent or sleeping bag to pull this off. One night was in the fog and snow. I would gladly do it all over again if it meant getting my ram.

    Pictures of both rams can be veiwed at http://www.maeichele.addr.com/Blank%20Page%204.htm

    Scroll down to the bottom of the page. They are the last 2 photos. Be pateint, sometimes they take a few minutes to load.

    Happy hunting to all this fall.

    Congrats to you both! Sounds like some cold *** nights! Still waiting on the pics to load, you're right, it's pretty damn slow on this dial up connection...
