Here is the article in our local paper about the new world record bighorn sheep that was found as a winterkill in 2016. Pretty amazing animal and to think it scores 7 inches more than the current world record is astonishing! The skull and head as shown weighs 48 pounds!

That was a brute, David. Great horns, to be sure.

I wonder if there are any photos of that brute. Being in a state area it could be someone snapped a pic or two.

This is a State Park so there is no hunting. It's a little over 2000 acres in size. Pretty neat though. I do hope some photo's of when he was alive will surface.

Amazing and cool Ram. Also neat to see that in a public park. They are good reservoirs for the age class and genetics it takes to make animals like that. That is needed as well. CL

They are going to have a public viewing of this guy later this month and I'm going to try and swing up to Kalispell to see if I can get some better pictures. If I do I'll post them up.
