Pictures of my 2006 Alberta Bighorn.

I am new to this board but am really enjoying the "all sheep" forum. Thought I would introduce myself and post a couple of pictures. I live in Alberta and do more than my fair share of hunting. Mostly for sheep but also elk and deer. The photos below are of my best bighorn Ram to Date. I shot my first Ram in 2004, but was looking for something a little bigger this year. Our Provincial law only allows you to hunt (successfully) 1 Bighorn every 2 years. So after taking a year off I was more than ready to go after another. I do spend a great deal of time in the of season scouting my favorite sheep territory, however I had not seen the Ram I eventually got in the area before. Anyway long story short I got my Ram on Oct 10 while hunting my favorite valley with a good hunting partner of mine. The picture doesn't show it, but I was actually very happy to have got this Ram. (my lips were so chapped that I just about bled to death every time I smiled) LOL. Hope you enjoy the Photo's. He was 36 1/2 on his right side and 35 5/8 on his left. If I get some time I'll post the whole story, if anyone is interested.

Glad you all enjoyed the pictures, I'll try and post the whole story soon. My Ram was taken North of the Bow River (sorry no specifics lol) and No he was not shot near the Highway in Jasper, as tempting as that might be Shame on You! . Me and My hunting partner trailed in a few horses about 20 miles into the middle of nowhere to get this guy. We hunt sheep in Alberta pretty much from the Montana border all the way North past the Grand Cache area Wonksy. We are really lucky as it an over the counter tag here for most of the hunting zones, with only a few areas being on Draw.
