West Fargo resident John Spiekermeier has been applying for a North Dakota bighorn sheep hunting tag for the better part of two decades. So far, he has been unsuccessful in being awarded one of the state’s seven tags, of which there is a 1-in-3,000 chance of drawing one.


His 15-year-old son Brodey, on the other hand, was awarded a tag on his second try and ended up with a 228-pound, Pope and Young Club-caliber bighorn sheep on Saturday, Oct. 26, northwest of Killdeer.
