A Pennsylvania hunter has set the new Washington state record for bighorn sheep with an incredible ram that he took last year in Asotin County. Gary Guerrieri grew up chasing whitetail deer but fell hard for bighorn sheep hunting in his 50s. He took the record-breaking ram during a week-long hunt in the Grande Ronde River area of the Columbia Plateau, which is in Washington state’s southeastern corner. He was hunting with guides Bryan Bailey and Glen Landrus of Bailey & Landrus Hunting Company.

With a dry score of 202-4/8 B&C points, the ram is not only a state record but also ranks as the 21st largest Rocky Mountain bighorn ever entered into the Boone and Crockett Club’s big game records program, according to a press release. The ram will most likely be invited to be part of the club’s 31st Awards Judges Panel, where the sheep’s score will be verified.
