After having a less than stellar 2016 season I was very optimistic for 2017. I probably began my training too early as I found one excuse after another to miss workouts and Cheat on my diet. But I got my finances in order, my mind right and shooting was spot-on, so I left home on the 26th of July, headed North!

That afternoon, after setting up camp we climb up and glass, late we find 2 Rams one a shooter. We put them to bed. Next morning we're back up and can't find out guys so we hike the South end of the mountains, finding many ewes and lambs but no Rams. That evening we're back wee we spotted the Rams the previous day and we find them, another Ram has joined them, he's a border-line legal.

Day 3, one day before opener, we decide to climb to North side of the range and look for a) the best way to access our targets and b) find other Rams perhaps in a better spot. We hiked up to the peak but a storm rolled in and pushed us down before we could hike it all. To make matters worse our Rams had pulled out. Plan was to move camp to the opposite side of the range in the morning. Even the "pack-dogs" were beat after today.

From: Bigpizzaman

Opening Day! Very little sleep last night! Both excitement and the noise of horses kept me up! Seems our wrangler (rookie) slept thru his alarm and the horses ran back to the camp, 4 hour ride. No moving today. While the wrangler was learning a valuable lesson we hiked up behind camp hoping to find our arms again. Was a horrible first day, zero Rams spotted and a lot of finger pointing! I was remaining optimistic but damn!

The wrangler chased horses all day/night but we had them in camp, we were to get up early and move camp so we could hunt half day. We talked about the importance of this, I even used one of my back-up batteries to charge the wranglers phone so he could hear his alarm! I stressed to the guide he was in charge and needed to make sure the wrangler was up. Didn't work! All but 2 horses escaped during the night! My "dream-hunt" was starting out as a "nightmare"!! I was pissed and let both guide and wrangler know it, they were good kids but falling short, unacceptable! I went to fill my water and cool down, a quiet peace came over me and said "just hunt'" you got this!

With two horses in camp we decide to ride out on the far side of the drainages we were unable to glass due to weather coming in during scouting. We spot 2 Rams in one drainage but neither are legal, onward. We are now in a high meadow, zero trees or cover but it's not a spot you'd expect to find sheep. Bam Rams, lots of them 20 no 25! 600 yards above us looking down right at us! We jump off the horses and attempt to us them as cover for us. 2-3-4-5 maybe 6 legal Rams in the band!! Great but??

From: Bigpizzaman
06-Aug-17
We lead the horses back down, trying to get ahead of the Rams. We tie them up and begin to climb. The valley fell and peak rose so what we thought was an hour climb, became 2! My lack of training wsnt an issue as I was running on adrenaline! At the peak we find no sheep! We either blew them out or they bet us and crossed above s we were climbing.

From: Bigpizzaman
06-Aug-17
We begin walking/crawling out to edges, looking around. We crawl out on a ledge overlooking a nasty shale basin, not where you'd think arms would be and Bam there they are!!

From: Bigpizzaman
06-Aug-17
We get into position, as close as we can without being seen, comfortable enough for a shot! Carefully we glass, finding the largest Ram far right (better line of sight for us) at 84.5 yards (angle compensated). My effective range (in my mind)was 90 yards, so as soon as our target gets off his bed and clears the lesser Rams around him I'll take the shot!

From: Bigpizzaman

Sun is out and we're out of the wind, its hot! One hour turns to two and nothing! Then our target Ram rises off his bed s does a lesser Ram, giving me no shot. My Ram steps away from the smaller one, getting further but another small Ram comes up behind him, still no shot. I'm hoping they don't move out on us. Finally my Ram is clear, I'm guessing 87 yards as I draw and settle my 90 pin low he turns to the left, quartering away. I pick a spot further back in front of his right hip and release! Time is standing still and as I watch the fight of the arrow, which seems to be taking forever, I loose it at the last moment. Rob, my guide, says you missed "over his back"! I'm heartbroken, but knock up and draw asking Rob to range, Rob isn't responding and my Ram is moving out of range, slowly. I look down fir the second best one when Robs says " He's bleeding"!

From: Bigpizzaman
06-Aug-17
By the time I look up my Ram has his legs going out from under him! He's down and rolling and rolling and rolling! He falls into a chute out of sight! I dive on Rob and take his back, sink my forearm under his chin! He taps!! I feel like Conor McGregor!

He's 10 1/2 years old, rough tapped 158" gross and all mine! Jokingly I told Rod on day one I wanted a "light-colored Stone", as I was thinking he would be easier to spot! He's very light colored! Also took damage on the fall, knocked out a couple front teeth and tore his lip!

From: Bigpizzaman
06-Aug-17
The climb down was brutal, out water, sweating profusely! I had the full cape, head/horn, straps/tenders and one front quarter. Rob had the other three! Not too much weight but my lack of training showed! We make the horses and load our packs on them, walk 4 miles back to camp! Sleep was sound that night!

"I'd like to order a slice of pizza please....for toppings, just throw on some STONES SHEEP!" No topping will be better than that!! As Midwest and Schism mentioned, your calendar is a month ahead of schedule. Well done....but I'd have choked the guide out for telling you that you missed, when in fact you'd made a good shot!! Tell me that you cooked some tenderloins on a flat piece of rock that evening......better yet, tell me that you snuck a small bottle of Crown Royal into your backpack, so you could celebrate your success in style!! Too bad I wasn't there to calm down the horses for you....LMAO!!

Excited to see that one Jake, he earned it!

Yes more great news!! He did earn it! Thanks everyone again. I need a Bighorn to finish my slam and although I killed one he ultimately ended up in the Fraser River not to be seen again. So this December I'm hoping to finish my Sheep Slam in Colorado, instead of the"Lucky Horseshoe" I'm bringing a lucky "Cajun Archer"! Hope to share some good news with you guys in the near future! My set-up (some asked here) is 2-Elite Impulse 34" Bows, both pulling 72#'s, Easton "Da'Torche" 400 arrows, Grimm Reaper 4-blade Pro-series broadheads, Spott-Hogg 7-pin sites (first pin at 20 and I gap 70-90 on last pin, also have a small mark on wire for 100-110-120) and TightSpot 5 arrow quiver.

Great story, and thanks for sharing. A friend arrowed a nice ram in Colorado recently. He's a BSiter, but it's his sheep, his story.
