Just got back to camp for a few minutes to grab some lunch hot off the grill. We got on them early this morning and saw roughly 20-25 sheep. Got busted trying to slip in for a shot on a big mature ram that was a stud. There is zero wind today and has warmed up quite a bit. Hope to have Ldps this afternoon.

Sorry for the delay with the pictures. Doubledrop got this beast last night right before dark.
175 yard shot and he went about 10 yards after being hit. 12-13 year old ram.

No luck today. It has been vary hot and the sheep were not moving much except early and late. Tomorrow is our last day so hopefully I can get it done. No LDP's so here is a scenery picture.

Well I got it don't this evening! We spotted about 10 sheep around 1:00 today. There was a possible shooter in the group. After we closed the distance from about 1000 yds to 3-4 hundred yds we realized there were about 200 sheep in this group. They were on the move. After a 4 hour stalk we caught up with them. The shot was about 275 yards, after he was hit he went about 15 yards before dropping. Because it was getting late and where the ram was we had to leave him for the night. We will go back in the morning. Here are a picture from before I shot. Double- drop has some great pictures of the herd and a video of me shooting.

We had an awesome time and we both came home with awesome trophies. The ranch, the scenery and the people were simply awesome. I am already wanting to go back.

Here are a few more pics.

Thanks Hunter.
Shurshots ram was 31-7/8s long. His bases were just over 13" and he was 11-12 years old.
Mine was 30" long with 13" bases and was at least 13-14 years old. He had tons of brooming & wear/tear making it hard to age. Guide said it was as old or older than any sheep he has ever guided. Both were mature studs
