“After 14 years waiting and 13 years of applying I had finally drawn a Colorado Rocky Mountain Bighorn Ram Tag from that moment on till the opening day of Sheep season I spent every available moment on the mountain glassing and scouting for sheep. On September 18th 2011 my dream finally came true, I harvested a mature 9 1/2 year old Ram with heavily broomed horns and 16 1/8″ bases with my Uncle Bud right there beside me just like so many years before, it was the culmination of years waiting, years watching, years filming, years dreaming to 49 total days scouting, planning, and preparing to 11 days actually hunting, while spending most of 8 days in camp because of the weather, to just one split second to change my life forever.”
