first weekend down and no shepp but we saw a 30" ram and 2 ewes. My son-in-law made a shot at him but we under estimated because of the 45* up hill incline. The distance was 524 yards and he hit 2" below his front feet.
On the up side I took my first animal with my new howa ranchland 308. Got a coyote at 372 yards to help out the sheep and deer population.
