Adam Simms, aka greatwestern in the MonsterMuleys.com forums, shared the following in our forum.
Adam writes, "Rocky Mountain Bighorn raffle permit holder Jeff Demaske and old Silvertip. Jeff hunted with us at Frontier in the magnificent high country of beautiful northern New Mexico. Jeff, GT, and I had a great adventure, killing the ram the evening of the fifth day in the alpine. We passed 5-6 book minimum type rams along the way, had this dude in range twice before with no shot presentation, bivied on the mountain at timberline with no sleeping bags (great fun), hiked way too many miles, and generally had just a superb time. Jeff made a brilliant 572 yard shot from a sheep bed kicked into a steep talus face, anchoring the ram immediately where he'd stood in the green velvet swale below. The ram measures 186 1/8 green/gross @ 11 years old. Its Jeff's 13th North American ram, and completes his third Grand Slam. It is also his largest ram to date."
