Great Rams. I love hunting them. So, so hard to pick them out until you get your eyes trained. After my first hunt I think I went out and spent $5K upgrading my Spotter (to a kowa 77), my tripod (to an OD med) and added a set of Meopta 15’s. I never want to be the guy that can’t find sheep again. But, like you. On the last afternoon I was able to spot my own ram. Not a great one, 27”, but the only one taken that trip out of 4 hunters.

They are funny, I have seen them on the flats between mesas camping out next to a stock tank and 9000 feet up a mountain.

If I ended up with enough cash to own a huge ranch, I'd buy one in the West Texas border country near Fort Stockton or in NE New Mexico where they exist. That way I could hunt them every year.

Flyguy is right. Spotting them is a challenge especially the first time. My goal on the last day of my hunt last year was to spot sheep before the guide rather than worrying about killing one!

Sounds like a great time. It's hard to believe those sheep can find enough to eat in that country, but there they are and thriving.
