2011 Colorado Desert Bighorn

  I thought you might be interested in seeing a picture of a Desert Big Horn sheep I shot on opening day in Colorado. I had spent many days scouting my area and had seen this ram before. I, my son and a very good friend from Wyoming walked in before daylight and found the sheep not far from where we had seen him the day before. We got to within approximately 600 yards right at first light and were able to cut the distance to 356 yards. I was shooting the 300 Weatherby Legend you had built for me and I got on my belly and sent a 180 Barnes TSX in his direction. I want you to know that this was probably the most important hunt in my life and I have a bunch of really good rifles in my safe, but I chose the very best rifle I own for this hunt. I own the 25-06 Classic you built for me and it is a wonderful rifle, but this was crunch time and I wanted the best in my hands. This is the same rifle I used in Alaska 10 years ago to take my Dall ram at 488 yards. It is a fantastic rifle and all I can do is say thank you, Brian, and Matt for your commitment to building the very best.
