The horns and skull of the pending world-record ram weigh roughly 48 pounds.

Weighs more than my almost 6 year old

Damn, that dude had some girth. Nice to see it wasn't poached.

I didn't realize natural death and roadkill got measured by B&C.

Nice to see that the area could produce such horns, but I have to admit my surprise that BC would recognize it as a "trophy", as it wasn't taken by arrow, or any other hunting method. WTF?

So ironic that this link is .gov and my .gov blocks it.

I saw a photo of that thing before and it looks huge, granted I don't know much about sheep.

WoW.
It is being scored or reconized as a "World Record", all around none hunter taken, here's what B&C has to say:

Nothing to do with hunting but a magnificent ram. Glad he lived and bred till he passed. Some great genes out there.

In reality it compares to high fence. The place is an island and specially managed for sheep/game production (no hunting).

All well and good since this acts as a gene pool that is exported to other areas. I suppose scoring it would be viable from a husbandry aspect, but not some record book. Maybe sheep breeders news & report?

FTR B&C is firearm and Pope & Young is archery.

Not withstanding I for one am damn happy the old ram passed his superior genetics on to hundreds if not thousands of sheep along his long breeding life. Wether or not he was ever hunted is irrelevant to the facts. I hope to hunt a Bighorn sheep if my surgery goes well enough to climb in the rocks again and I hope I find one of his offspring that's as good as he was. I would bet a ton of money if you were hunting sheep you would to.

Yeah...weird. It's basically a zoo animal dying then getting scored by a sportsmen's club.

“Without natural fires, we have to resort to mechanized habitat stimulation and removal of brush and trees. This costs money and we have to rely on creative funding sources and donations to get the job done,” Landstrom said. “It’s a challenge our people freely accept, especially when we can see results like this special animal, and share this special place with people.”
It looks like Flathead does freeze over completely about every 10 years - I wonder how many (or few) have wandered off the island.

I agree. Record books should be for animals taken by hunters under fair chase conditions. Part of the record is the achievement of the hunter. "Largest specimen on record" should be a zoological issue.
