Well....This is the end of my 2005 California Ram Hunt. I hope everyone enjoyed the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!! The last photo I am posting shows the Government I.D. Plug inserted into the left horn stating this ram is "BC #415" Makes it official and makes this the end of the story!!!!!

Awesome ram. How long did it take you to draw the tag?

KSHunter,

This was the first year I have ever put in for a LEH Ram tag and was lucky enough to draw the one and only tag available for this region. British Columbia draws are a bit different than most. We are eligable to put in each year for each species available under limited entry hunting. You may get drawn every year for a tag or....never drawn in your lifetime! Unlike alot of states and Alberta where you accumalate points for a species, each year here is a random lottery. Some like it..some dont!

I don't think I have chimed in here hemi, but that is a respectable ram to say they least. The country you hunted looks a lot like what I get into no matter what I am hunting, lol. Absolutely breathtaking!! Thanks for the pictures, and good job on the hunt!!
