 Against All Odds  Bronze Sculpture by Rick Taylor
RICK TAYLOR - SCULPTOR: Bronze sculpture, titled "Against All Odds" by long-time donor Rick Taylor, depicts the new world record Boone and Crockett Rocky Mountain Bighorn ram. This remarkable ram, ear tagged #706 as a lamb in 1998, had miraculously survived a bullet wound in the base of his right horn in 2008, but somehow continued to grow and became very reclusive. He met an unfortunate end on January 19, 2010 when he was struck and killed by a vehicle near the ranch where he had spent his last 2 years. The rancher found him and was eventually given a permit to possess the horns. In 2014, the ram was officially scored as the largest ever on record. This bronze is number 1 of an open edition and will undoubtedly be cherished forever by the lucky bidder who wins this auction favorite!!! PROCEEDS BENEFIT THE CONKLIN FOUNDATION.
