    While taking a long break from reloading decided to wander around New Mexico . While on my journey I started thinking about what bullets I could possibly use to shoot this majestic animal. Also, What is it?

    I really just want to know what the animal is. My wife and I are arguing about it.:dunno: If they are tasty I am sure I could shoot one with my 10mm and drag it off Native American Sacred land with a lasso.

    There would be prison time involved with shooting someone's livestock that has tags in the ears. I'm really disappointed in your lack of powers of observation considering the amount of time you've had to study with a real investigator like Jack. :couch:

    The big one in the top of the second picture and middle of the top picture had a collar. Pretty sure it's not a dog. I didn't see a ear tag?

    These were on Native American Land. I kinda thought they were tracking them for some reason.

    If I am not mistaken that's your Colo. State animal the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep! All ewe's and young ones.

    Yes, they are tasty. Where did you spot them? I wouldn't try taking pot shot at them, you might not be able to afford that. One would think you would recognize them. I guess Jack's right as always, you are a Flatlander.

    :rofl:

    Fred probably has a good recipe. I've heard rave reviews for his zebra tartar.

    The Fish & Game department. Captures the animals and puts a tag in there ear. The tag has a number on it So that they can keep track of them. The white collar is probably a track device. They do that on all kinds of animals.

    They probably looked a lot like these, right. The coloration might be a little different this was taken in winter or early spring.

    The one on top in the second picture appears to have a blue/green ear tag. I think that just means he's on sale.

    If they're on Native American land, does that mean you can only take them with a bow?

    :)

    For the record my wife and I were both wrong. But that not surprising I guess. If one of them had been Blue I am sure I could have figured it out.

    Steve, these are waaaay smarter and harder to track. Tasty too.
