Oregon – California Bighorns
These pictures were taken on 05-12-09 while on a scouting trip for other animals. The wind was blowing more than 40 knots, causing many problems of getting good pictures in open territory. My partner Steve and myself stalked within 40 feet of the 11 Rams in these pictures. It was a great feeling and the Rams did not get disturbed during the stalk. We were very low keyed in the stalk and used the wind to keep things down.
These Rams do live on private land, but I am sure whoever draws a tag for the area could work something out.
We also spotted Ewe’s about 9 miles away.
