That is truly a magnificent ram. I don't apply for the desert rams as I plan to take one out of the mountains up here before I ever start to apply for those. At least it seemed like a good plan 18 years ago when I started to apply. Some of my friends have gone after sheep twice now while I continue to wait.
I use Matt for my mounts also but have not needed his services for quite awhile now. I think he was in his first or second year when I hauled my lion in back in 97. He was better priced and does great work.
Maybe this year I will have a reason to swing by again.
Congratulations again on you success
