almost forgot........the middle pic is the world record Marco Polo sheep with the longest horn of 67 3/8" and 16 1/2" bases :eek:


But on the other hand I don't know many people who could afford these hunting rates.....just to shoot one would cost you 27,500.00 and don't have any idea how much the entire trip would be?

Those are the biggest sheep I've ever seen. I wonder how they get their horns to grow so long without brooming?

Oh, Elkhunter. I'm sure the middle one got a bloody nose when they knocked it out so they could take the picture. I heard he wouldn't sit still. ......
:cool:

That world record one looks kind of broomed on the left and the last one looks kind of broomed on the right. $27,000+ for one hunt, those guys probably did 2-3 other $20,000 animals on their trip for those. They are definitely nice animals to look at. $27,000 puts them pretty far away for me.
