    Today's Ram Hunt

    I've not yet drawn a permit to hunt these guys, and probably never will. They live only a few miles from my home here in Chelan County, Washington. My wife is uncommonly good at spotting wildlife, she found them, and I closed in on foot for a few photos:







    I may never draw that "once in a lifetime" tag, but if I do, I'm pretty sure that I could manage just fine.


    Regards, Guy

    I suppose you shoot it with your 30'06 like everything else! Variety is the spice of life give something else a chance to get out in the sunlight. Btw really hope you get one of those bruisers!

    I do rely on my 30-06 a lot. It works great! So does my 25-06 though. And I was thinking today, that I was close enough to these guys that I could easily have used my 45/70 Marlin for them.

    Except that I'd go to jail if I shot them with anything except a camera today!

    Those are beautiful bighorns. I hope you get a permit soon. Is Washington on a point system? I am trying to get a permit in Wyoming and they have the point system. So far I have 19 points, hoping next year to get a permit. Ha, before I get too old.

    Ya, it's a point system here too. I think I've got about 412 points now. HA! By the time I have enough points to draw, I'll be too old to get out into the canyons and hills to hunt them!

    Exactly. I figured out some time ago that "hunting" with a camera has no season, no limits, no tags, no permits, no license needed.... Only thing that's really missing is the pack out and the mighty fine meal.

    But... I can live with that. I enjoy "hunting" with my camera as much as hunting with my rifle.
