We believe it is important to recognize these monarchs that roamed our rough and rocky mountains for so long. It is our hope these awards will be used as an educational tool as well. For new sheep hunters, it is important for them to understand the importance of letting younger rams mature and taking those older rams off the mountains. For seasoned sheep hunters, it is our hopes that these awards will encourage them to pass up those younger rams in search for those true monarchs.
The Old Ram Award will be presented to any WSFA member(s) who harvests a 10+ year old ram in Alberta during the current hunting season.
The Oldest Ram Award will be presented to the WSFA member(s) who harvests the oldest ram in Alberta during the current hunting season.

We would also like to thank Lee Martineau, Jeff Wall and Tom Bodewitz for entering their beautiful rams into our 2018 awards. All three gentleman are Life Members and strong supporters of our foundation.
