Big Horn Sheep

I went North To the Georgetown, Colorado area last week to try for some big horn sheep.


As I expected the weather was really good and really bad during this trip. 30 mile an hour winds with higher gusts and snowing, during the snow with the high winds it was a white out and then for the next couple of hours nice sunshine.

On the way back to Georgetown after a unsuccessful Big Horn ambush.

I got real lucky on these next 4 shots. I had watched some rams on and off the day before so I went in early and parked my camera wagon and sat to the passenger side so when they came out they would not see any movement in the vehicle. On the way down out of the timber this guy laid down for a little rest.

When I looked closer at the photo I noticed you can see my camera wagon in his eye.



#4
A piece of blowing trash spooked them and they started up the hill. I used my crow call to get him to stop a couple of times.
