The colo governor sheep permit sold at the sheep show $320,000
Two bidders with a lot of money wanted to go sheep hunting this fall. I guess having 2 good rams harvested on the auction and raffle tags didn't hurt. The auctioneer is a good supporter of the RMBS and Colorado and he mentioned the 200 6/8 ram that was killed by a public draw hunter on public land as well before the auction started.
I doubt the governor's holder is going to hunt the unit that 200 incher came from. Guys have been calling it a trash unit for years. You also can't spot rams from a road in there.
By the way, it wasn't me.
Was it Jimmy John?
No it was an average joe
Average Joe that killed the 200+" or bought the auction tag?
If the latter, he's either not average or will be getting an envelope from his wife's attorney shortly :^)
Average Joe harvested the 200+ Jimmy John did not buy the tag.
Surely it was the gorgeous ram and handsome hunter in the advertisement that had all the ladies imploring their husbands to bid it up. LOL
I didn't know Kirby won the raffle tag a couple years ago
He didn't..... I had his winning ticket. Haha!
Sandbew speaks the truth.
Any photos of these crusher rams?

I can't believe my $319,000 bid didn't win :)
When a tag sells like this it is good for sheep, and for all of you hunters that draw a sheep tag this year remember you just won a $320,000 lottery so make the most of your opportunity.
