“Against All Odds” – Longview Ram 706 – Bronze by Rick Taylor
Ram #706 was born in 1998 in the Sheep River Sanctuary west of Turner Valley. In October 2008 at the ripe old age of 10, poachers shot and struck the ram and the bullet penetrated both of his horns. A week later a second ram was wounded. The wounded rams went missing for 3 months before showing up on the OH Ranch, far from their traditional range. They were observed grazing on the grassy slopes, slept by the barn and occasionally wandered down to highway 541 to lick salt from the road. Both rams returned to the sanctuary in 2009 for annul rutting activities. Amazingly #706 was strong and healthy and his horns continued to grow in a normal fashion in spite of the massive wound By now he was well on his way to growing the largest set of horns ever to be recorded.
Both rams returned to the grassy slopes of the OH in the winter of 2010. Sadly and unexplained, #706 returned one January night to the highway and was struck by a moving vehicle He made it back to the ranch and succumbed to his injuries. A tragic end for a ram who survived “Against All Odds” for 12 years in the wild.
In the spring of 2015, the Boone and Crockett Club sent a team of master measurers to the Wildsheep Foundation Alberta Chapter Convention. It was here that the certified panel officially scored the horns at 209 4/8’s, making #706 the official #1 Rocky Mountain Bighorn
