Looks like a couple of dall sheep, a stone and a desert bighorn. Any idea on where they came from?

To shoot those animals now you are looking at a couple hundred grand

A lot further than further west, the stone and dall sheep live up in British Columbia/N.W.T up into Alaska.

Those trophies are not to be taken lightly, someone put in some serious effort to hunt those animals.

Shame they have deteriorated so badly

It is a shame eventually I may try and surprise the landowner and get them redone… I actually found some old Boone and crocket paperwork on em from 1951 I’ll have to take a picture of it pretty cool

Looks like it’s gonna be a neat place. Lots of porcupines in that part of the world. They will hammer some protein if y’all put it out. Sometimes they can be worse than coons.

If you can hold out until June the big boys start roaring hard and rutting like crazy. You will start to see some really good axis. Looks like a nice place.
