Ctp, do you use photobucket?? Shouldn't need any posts to copy/paste an IMG code from photobucket like this:

Sorry for the close-up guys. Still trying to figure this Photobucket cropping, resizing, posting thing out. I was fortunate enough to draw a tag in 14C and have a great hunt with Lance Kronberger about 5 years ago. The Chugach is an amazing place and I long to get back up there but I'll probably have to wait a while longer. I can follow threads like this and dream in the meantime! Here's another view of the country.

Couple of big Brooks Range rams

I have guided for over 30 Dall rams, but I have never shot one for myself. I have guided for 2 that were 39.5", but have yet to break the 40" barrier. This giant-bodied, one-horned ram was aged at 17 years! Apparently about 5 years before my hunter shot him, he must have fallen down a mountain, or somehow ripped his horn off and broke off his horn post. I have to imagine that he was in an incredible amount of pain for a few years until his horn grew back over the post. I would guess that this ram was about 270 pounds live weight. I would say it was at least 50 pounds bigger than the average ram. He had one tooth in his lower jaw, and it was nothing but a stump below the gum line.

The other was 39.5".

There is nothing quite like sheep hunting!!!

Billy, those are some cool pics, and that is pretty incredible about that one ram with the broken horn. That is definitely not something you see very often. It's your turn now!
