Here are the others (minus 1). (I made this for him last year.)

Few people understand what this takes. Most will say it takes a lot of money. That may be true, but more importantly, it takes unrivaled mental toughness.
Incredibly inspirational.

Dang he is living right! That’s one of my dreams is to shoot a ram. Kudos to him, I don’t fully understand what all it takes to run all over the mountains after them but I know I sure would have a hard time with 1 much less 12!!

that bottom right one is a stud. Your friend is very lucky. These all drawn hunts? If not hes got some serious big horn money. You are right getting one of those with the bow is a major challenge.

Those are some incredible trophies. I have no doubt that it takes a huge amount of mental toughness on the hunt but without big money you aren't going to get those kinds of opportunities. Not saying that as a bad thing at all btw

And with the mental fortitude of a wet piece of TP, regardless of your pocket depth, you wont get nearly close enough to make a shot.

Props to the man regardless of drawn or purchased.

Money does not buy the rams, but it does afford the hunter the opportunity. It's by Gods grace and relentless effort on the hunters part that he/she may capitalize on that opportunity......

Woah woah … easy

I'd quit on the hunt. Stating that I don't have the mental toughness

That is a heck of an accomplishment. Congrats to the masked hunter. You have to be driven, extremely dedicated, and also have the financial resources to do this. I know a few archery super slammers that have killed a boatload of sheep
and no matter how much money you have you still have to be one tough Sum-buck to kill those critters w stick & string.

Wow, what a story he could tell. On top of some great trophies, they all appear to have been taken with a bow.

I sometimes wonder how many people there are like this who we never hear about. No face book or other social media type post. The Bass Pro in Pearland and Dallas both showcase such people that you've seemingly never heard of but who have amassed quite the collection of hunting stories that I wish would be told.

We're quite lucky to have a few on here, although one or two don't post about it much anymore.
