Great recap, congrats Doc, thanks for taking us along. Those type of hunts push you to the limits, I have been on 3 or 4, if you never been you just do not know.

Well I'm 54 and can tell you I'll never be able to get in shape to do anything remotely close to this hunt anymore. I tip my hat to you for doing it !

What is a legal ram there? Would this be considered a 3/4 curl ? Age of the ram? I'm just curious, not banging you.

A legal ram in most areas of Alberta has to be 4/5 curl. If you draw a line from the front part of the base through the front of the eye then the horn on one side must break that plane. Much more wiggle room once caped out. If I was by myself there is no way in hell I shoot that ram. It made it by 3/4 to 1 inch. My ram looks like he was 6 years old. I have mixed emotions. If I thought I might see a bigger ram I would have considered passing. After talking to these guys, on a typical hunt you see one legal ram about every 14 days. Overall long term success with an outfitter runs 50%. My guys probably run 80-100% opportunity per year which is great. Always the hunter side of the equation gets mixed in. If I went bow only I bet my chances were 10-15 percent. There was one area that was ideal to bowhunt and they see rams there every year. We didnít see any in that spot.

I was curious how many have completed the slam so I had to go look.

As of Jan 2021 only 173 people have done it. Pretty incredible really.

Thanks for taking us along doc, hope to be up there someday...until then I am training.

Just noticed we both live in the 'beautiful' Amarillo, small world.

Surprised you haven't delivered one of our kiddos, we have 6 and Barnett delivered most of them.

God bless!

If Barnett delivered them when he was still in our practice then I am amazed I wasnít involved at some point!

Thatís pretty dang close. That line to make 4/5 can actually come back a bit where it hits the eye. When caped out you gain a fair amount of leeway. I bet 1/2 an inch or more. But, you got it right.
