Bradley Visser 2010
Idaho Ram
September 13, 2010

Bradley Visser's 2010 sheep hunt didn't get past opening day resulting in this fine Idaho bighorn ram estimated to green score 189.

The ram was reported to be a California bighorn. B&C records do not recognize California bighorns as a separate category. Genetically, the two can be separated, but due to sheep reintroductions and cross breeding it is rare to find a pure strain California bighorn. California bighorns have a genetic tendency toward small horn growth. A ram scoring as high as 189 is most likely a bighorn.

The state record for Idaho is a ram scoring 197-7/8. The state record for Washington, another state with both bighorn and California bighorns, is 196-28. Both of these rams are bighorns.
