Bob Richert (2012-2013)

Bob drew his tag in the White Mountain hunt zone of California and harvested the first ram of the 2012-13 season. The 8-year-old ram scored 162 1/8 and had both a collar and an ear tag. On the first day of the hunt we got caught in a wild and western hailstorm. Bob got his ram on the last day of the hunt at an elevation of 12,000 ft. With his heart still pounding from the stalk, he made a great shot at 180 yards. Congratulations Bob.

Jacob Dunn (2012-2013)

“Sweet Sixteen” - Sixteen is the minimum age to apply for a sheep tag in California. Sixteen-year-old Jacob Dunn drew his tag in the Sheep Hole Mountains. He took this ram at 93 yards after a 6-¾ hour stalk. He walked a total of 9 miles with a pack on his back and a smile on his face. This was the largest ram to come out of the Sheep Holes this year and the 5th largest ever in the unit. The hunt made memories that will last a lifetime for both he and his dad Jack Dunn. Thanks guys, it was a special hunt for us also.

Kurt Lanning (2012-2013)

Kurt had to over come some serious health issues to do this sheep hunt in California’s Marble/Clipper hunt unit. His wife Mary Margaret who is a certified personal trainer and nutrition consultant was a big part of all that. Kurt took this “great old warrior” with an excellent 364-yard shot from his 308 Norma Mag. The ram scored 181 1/8 B&C and was the second largest ram in the state this year and the oldest by far. It is also the largest ram ever taken in the unit. Kurt and his 14-year-old ram will receive the “Oldest Ram of the Year” award as well as the “Patriarch Award." Congratulations Kurt!
