Got this from another site. Great video. The guy who shot the ram was only 67yrs young.

Quite an accomplishment even for a younger guy. 43 years in the draw! It paid off.

Pretty darn cool. I was fortunate to have witnessed the entire thing through my spotting scope from across that huge canyon. This is 45 minutes from my house and I got invited to help out on the hunt. It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Congrats Randy. Ed F

Cool...

Didn't realize Arizona had "Rocky Mountain" Bighorns, assumed Bighorns in Arizona were all "Desert" Bighorns...

The mass is unreal and it's not until he picks it up do you realize how huge it is.

Nice job!!!

Zbone,

They only give about 16 tags statewide for Rocky Mountain Bighorns. As like all sheep tags in Arizona, they are all ram tags and all General (firearms) tags unless you choose to use a bow on the "firearms" hunt.

I was the Boone & Crockett measurer for this sheep (and on the Panel for the state record book), and it lost a lot of points due to all the chunks that were missing, but still a great sheep.

The day that credit cards started getting hit, Randy (the hunter that took this ram) and I both got hit and thought we were going to get to bowhunt together. We had both listed the same desert sheep hunt as our first choice, both had max points for AZ, there were only two tags for the hunt we wanted, and we both got hits! But a few weeks later, he found that he had actually drawn his second choice, which was a Rocky tag, while I drew my first choice, the Desert tag. Lucky for him!

Zbone,

Sorry, I didn't get to respond to your question to me. Yes, I was fortunate to take a nice ram that was officially scored at 173 2/8. I gave a short account of my hunt in this link.

For some reason nothing makes me happier than watching the "grizzled" guys have success bowhunting. The older the better imo!
