Montana Giant-largest ever in lower 48

A friend forwarded me this photo with the following description:

Monster Ram From Montana Possibly Largest Ever!
> A lucky hunter with the one coveted non-resident tag in Montana ‘s Missouri River Breaks just harvested possibly the largest ram ever taken in the United States ! The ram green scored 205 with both horns stretching to 44 1/2″ with over 16″ bases and carries the mass throughout the horn length. The ram will be officially scored after the 60 day drying period. If the ram exceeds Jim Weatherly’s 204 7/8 ram taken in 1993 it will be the new Montana state record and will also be the largest ram ever taken in the United States . Pat White was assisted and filmed on the hunt by John Lewton of Whitehall , MT. The two men backpacked in over 10 miles, glassing as they went and found the ram. They shot the ram and carried it out on their backs the 10 miles back to the trailhead. Only gutting out a 20 mile foot march in 90+ degree heat resulted in the harvest of one of the largest rams ever taken.
