Not exactly a sheep but here’s my 2020 Billy Ibex. The trusty old 28 Nosler got it done. 41 1/8” on the long side, 39 4/8 on the broken side. Florida Mountains, NM

Ibex....are of the goat side of the family...
But....reading up on it....the goat and sheep took different directions during the miocene period....a really long time ago.....
Maybe the goat'tee' ticked off the sheep........and they became the first 'blacksheep' of the family.....🙄..
Cool looking critter....did ya get it in flight or ground sluice him....😜

Cool video! How far was the shot & what bullet/powder combination? What do they taste like?
It was a 700 yard shot, 23 degree angle. 28 Nosler/Retumbo/ pushing a 180 VLD.
It’s very goat tasting. I made a lot of it into breakfast sausage and brats and it was pretty good. They stink something awful but the taste wasn’t bad
