Desert Bighorn by Scott Faiman

31 years after leaving Bismarck and moving to Elko NV. I finally drew a Desert Bighorn tag.  I was able to glass 35 Rams in three days prior to the opener.  The biggest Ram ~162 disappeared prior to opening day leaving this Ram (158 4/8) staring me down at 90 yards.  He stared a bit to long!!  Very fun hunt in unique terrain.  He should make a beautiful trophy with a unique Argali rim on the inside of his curl and brooming that looked like a broken tree branch on his right side.  I hope my son will draw in the next few years before I'm to old to call it fun, I'd love to go on another bighorn hunt.

Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong.
