Congrats! Well done.

Did you see many sheep on your hunt? Did you run into any other hunters in your unit?

From: bowhunter1

Nyati, I looked at the odds for archery in Colorado S09 unit , odds are 9 tags are awarded for that unit , odds look like only 1 is killed a year with a bow , so I decided I would shoot first legal ram. Because I feared I might not ever get another chance in my life time

From: bowhunter1
22-Aug-23
Quinn, I located a group of 5 rams , two bigger than mine but they had me pegged and mine was 25 yard shot uphill . Seen a lot of backpackers but no hunters

Congrats Tom! I was the nonresident representative on that hunt last year. Think I recognize the knob you’re working up in the pics. It was on my list to check out but I’m kind of glad I never had to! You have my respect sir.

Holy schmoley- you're not kidding that's steep!!! I'd love to hear some more details of the final stalk/shot and how it all played out, if you don't mind.

My buddy Kurt told me any Ram with a bow in the Sangres is a great trophy. Are those hill’s still steep? Ha! Great job!

From: Scrappy
22-Aug-23
Congrats, job well done Sir.

22-Aug-23
That’s a dream hunt for 98% of us… Kudos to you for using a bow. By the looks of the terrain killing anything with a bow up there would take some major determination. Congrats to you! Thanks for sharing.
