in the Records of Exotics. Anybody have experience with this? I got a letter last year congratulating me but didn't pay much attention to it. This just came in the mail today. Hoax or real?

I am assuming that 1- You did shoot a ram and 2- You had someone score it for the ROE. That being the case, why not just contact Thompson and ask him.

That man is impossible to get a hold of. I did shoot a ram, it was measured and submitted.

I would think that the letter would be much more detailed and personal if it were only going out to ten people.

I looks like the type of letter that would be mailed to hundreds of people.

Congrats on your Ram regardless of how the letter looks!

Form letter +hard to get hold of = RED FLAG, in my opinion.

Looks like a poor edition/execution of a startup idea to me, especially the handwritten part on the bottom for the description. I also don't know why the hunter and not the outfitter, would be inclined to buy the plaque for the "ranch"?

Did a little research, evidently the Record of Exotics has Ben around since 1976.

May just be poor execution then IDK. Not even sure how I got the idea it was fairly "new"? Having been around that long, you'd think you could contact someone in charge to find out what is legit or not. Then it would come down to if you feel $70 some odd bucks, is worth having the plaque and book, might be neat hanging beside the mount.

At least it isn't a "participation trophy" grin

Remember the Who's Who of High School Seniors books? Looks like the same kind of scam promotion.

Congratulations on your ram however.

I don't know Thompson Temple but have read a lot of controversial posts about him here. Lots more bad than good. Red flag for me.

Can we see a picture of your ram up

My question is "Mouflon Type". I thought there were categories for Corsican or Mouflon?
