I saw a dead bull snake on the road and it was nearly 80 degrees. So I declare today opening day of snake season. Didn't see a single snake. But we did see a group of 7 Bighorn rams. They weren't at all spooked by the pickup. Two were on the other side of the river and 5 on the road side. The river is real low right now so they had no problem wading across. We never did get the biggest one to pose for a picture. So no snakes but a successful evening drive.

The river has come up since I took those pictures. I got a message that the reservoir is full so they have to dump what ever comes in. The river came up 2 feet here yesterday 30 miles down stream from the reservoir. We now have all the irrigation water we can stand and then some. I may just drowned the meadows.

Not just shooting a very nice ram but got lucky in drawing a tag. I should say the tag as they were only issuing one tag a year. In 2020 there was pneumonia going through the sheep. That caused them to halt the one tag they had been allowing. I found a dead ewe on the road and had a lunger in my driveway for several days.

I’ve got a grundle of desert sheep points here in Utah. Someday I hope to hunt one before I get ancient. Again, congrats Vaquero. Awesome ram. And a really cool picture of all the rams too.
