In challenging conditions of heavy rain and fog, we successfully hunted this beautiful ram on September 17, 2014.
The desert bighorn is the rarest big-game animal in North America. We estimate that there are an average of 100 free-ranging desert bighorn sheep on our ranch at any given time. This has been a very good year for lambs: earlier this summer we saw 23 lambs in one group of 68 ewes and lambs.
This year we observed four mature rams during the several-day hunt, which was conducted entirely on foot. This is the third ram taken by a lady hunter.
