Ram Awards


The Ram Awards recognize outstanding North American sheep harvested by WSF members in the previous hunting season. Two types of awards are presented; Rifle and Archery. To qualify for Rifle, rams must meet or exceed the minimum Boone and Crockett (B&C) Awards Book score. To qualify for Archery, rams must meet or exceed the minimum Pope and Young (P&Y) score. The sheep recognized and associated minimum scores are as follows:


 
Sheep Rile Minimum Archery Minimum
Dall's 160 120
Stone's 160 120
Rocky Mountain Bighorn 175 140
Desert 165 120
 









California Bighorn Sheep are not recognized by either B&C or P&Y, therefore the minimum scores are established by the Awards Committee. Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards will be given for each sheep in both the Rifle and Archery categories. Sheep submitted that meet the minimum score, but are not in the top three will receive Honorable Mention. In addition to these awards, Ram Awards of Excellence maybe given. Awards of Excellence are determined by the WSF Awards committee and are reserved for the truly exceptional animals – usually a new world record.
