Well went out to Delta to do a little sheep hunting and got this guy.
Left = 39 3/8"
Right = 36" (broomed)
Bases = 13"
Not to shaby for my first sheep. Had a great time and it was definately the hardest hunt I have ever done.
Partner and I spotted him on hunt day 1 went after him at 0700 the second day and at 10:00 that morning he was down with one shot at 224 yards with the .270 WSM using 150 Noslers. Needless to say He fell about 100 feet and landed perfectly on a rock and damn near split him in half. I caped out as much as possible, but when I got down and layed it out, there was no way, so European mount it will be. Saw alot of 7/8 curls.

This was my first sheep hunt and I learned that I took too much damn food. I took 20 lbs and now realized I could have got away with around 12lbs. Other than that everything went great. Saa a huge Grizz, Black Bear and Bou.
Congrats to all the sheep hunters. Special congrats to Jason in anchorage, he got a sheep pon his first hunt as well.
dang 130+lbs on your back sucks but well worth it.....
