    Glad you enjoy the photos. I chased those rams (in reality looked for those rams) for 5 years, but going solo, I was never was able to get in deep enough where the rams are. I finally found and connected on my first ram in 2005. I took my 2007 ram only about 600 yards from where I took my first. It's been a lot of hard work, but the reward is well worth it. I am planning to go back in 2009 (in Alberta we can only harvest a ram every second year) - I just can't get enough of those mountains. Thanks

    wow...

    that sure brings back memories...my first ram was also a solo backpack hunt, here in colorado. in my opinion there is no better way to do it. not only are you pitting yourself against one of the sharpest game animals on earth, you are up against fickle weather and the harshest terrain in the world....my hat is off to you my friend ...we are kindred spirits. great rams.

    Those rams are awsome everytime I see those pictures. What did they score?

    How come you're using a different name here than on AO? I try to keep my name the same on every site I go to. Too hard to remember the different names otherwise.:rolleyes:
