I posted my pic over at 24 hour campfire and am being accused of shooting a sub-legal ram....ant body who knows sheep knows this ram easily surpasses the 10 year, full curl, or broomed requirement.

I know Ithaca, and Buzz, nad Eric and Ovis know a legal ram when they see it. My ram was checked in at a state park and given a high thumbs up......now some jealous asshole is claiming I killed an illegal ram....Moosie is bravely taking up my slack ;) ...but that does piss me off that the guy is saying such shit!

I read every thing and he was absolutly in the wrong..I think when people from out of area score good in an area that a local hunts. They get a little bent because they feel that it was their animal.....Way to go!!!! :D :D :D

DS, dont worry, sounds like another Pug. I'll have to go over there and see what the fuss is all about. I mean when a ram gets to 38 inches, clearly is well past full curl, over 10 years old, broomed on one side (still full curl) checked by the state, WTF else is a guy to do?

Tell him to go pound sand in his ass.

not killing a ram
DS just direct your pinheaded admirer to the AK hunting regs.

A ram is legal if:
1) full curl when viewed from the side(either horn)
2) both horns are broomed
3) 8 years old as determined by the annuili or growth rings.

You killed a 10 year old. It wouldn't matter if he was a 20 inch half curl, 10 years old is legal.
He's legal, end of story.

By the way, congrats again on your ram. He's a beaut'. Please post some profile photos if you have them.(edit: never mind I just saw them in the other thred)
