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?

Thompsons communication skills leave a little to be desired. But he is legit. You gotta figure he is sending out 10 letters per category and probably nearly 20 categories. Not as prestigious as sci but still nice to keep aa record of your hunt.
Worth the $70? That's up to you. I am satisfied with the decal and a photo collage.
He is a pretty genuine guy and I think he funnels all money from the roe back into the program as he sure aint living in the Ritz.

Do not see "Mouflon Type" on website above? #2 is a great ram, I would just inquire if the ram is #2 Corsican or Mouflon.

Got ahold of him today. Had a long conversation as usual. Yeah his place leaves little to be desired. He divinely has a passion for what he does, and a passion for Mexico! Going to make a trip down there next spring and hopefully knock down a Corsican with my pistol.

That's his legitimate letter. Thompson pretty much runs that ROE all by himself. I don't think there is a board or committee or anything like what TGR or SCI does. He keeps things simple,cheap and easy to manage in his view to keep his cost down.

Yes it seems like a top ten animal should be a bit more personal but I know TGR does a typed letter as well. TGR does send a certificate with the typed letter along with a packet of papers that talk about the awards banquet and such. I don't think ROE does that but I believe they used to decades ago.

Remember its not just one animal Thompson has to type this up for and this is every year. Would you want to hand write or type in the animal for every single species and for every method of kill? I visited Thompson Temple years ago and he told me he did all this stuff himself. I sure wouldn't. There is tons of different species entered each year and many with a different method of take. That's why the wording of that first sentence is structured that way so that it can cover multiple species and method of takes.

I'm just saying....I was solicited to buy the Boone And Crockett record book in the same manner. "Your Trophy will be listed in the newest version of the B&C record book" send 55.99 plus shipping and handling to this address to get your copy of the record book showing your Trophy and its measurements.My name is in #8 font. I keep a magnifying glass nearby because anyone over the age of 40 can't see the tiny writing.

At the end of the day it is American Capitalism at its finest...


I wish stupidity was not so handsomly rewarded.

Thank you for an informative and classy response Curtis. Unless an outfitter is an outright rip off there is no need to bad mouth ones character. I personally didn't realize the ROE thing was such a small operation. But that isn't saying much. There is plenty I'm ignorant of.

I know there are varying opinions on Temple's "hunting" operation. And those who know me know I'm not a fan of the goats and sheep. I'm not going there but some folks I know have and had a good shoot. He isn't ripping anyone off and many more people go there and have a great time, take an animal they like and are happy with the experience than post negative things here. In fact a large number of the people I know who hunt don't even know about hunting forums and couldn't care less about joining one much less our opinions.

Nice to see someone who is held in respect in that industry speak a kind word in Mr. Temple's behalf. Thanx again Curtis.
