Just got done putting together some data for another sheep hunter based on the last couple yrs stats for his unit. Highest score 171, avg was 156 and age class avg was 6-8 yr old rams in the 150-160 range. There's many other factors to consider but it's a start.

I think knowing what the unit is trending helps set a reasonable goal, with the hope of exceeding it !
