DESERT BIGHORNS is a pictorial history of hunting desert sheep in Arizona, from its inception in 1953 through the 2010 season, which was the best harvest of Boone &Crockett-sized desert rams in the history of modern sport hunting. The book is a virtual showcase representing the "Top 100 Desert Bighorns" taken in Arizona. It is an 8 1/2" x 11" hardbound book of the highest quality, consisting of over 400 pages that include more than 365 color photos, many of which are 8" x 10", depicting almost all of the top 100 rams, plus many other spectacular trophy sheep. Also included are schedules that represent the scores of the largest rams harvested annually from Arizona's top producing sheep hunt units, and a master schedule that depicts the largest rams harvested statewide each year from 1953 to 2010. In addition, Arizona's Top 100 Rams are listed, reflecting their official and unofficial ranking.
Although the desert bighorn ram is one of the most sought-after game animals in North America, there is a lack of information on the subject of hunting these most coveted of mountain game trophies. Arizona has long been known for having the world's most prolific desert bighorn population and it has consistently produced some of the largest record book rams harvested by sport hunters.
