    Default ship creek sheep hunt/ ds136

    Hope the pics came through. Didn't see anything big, but I'm not so much a trophy hunter (yet)and was happy to get a legal ram. there are MANY sub-legal rams in the area. Great experience for first time sheep hunt and great thanks to all who helped me with info and advice. Hopefully I can return the favor for the next lucky tag winner. Have many good photos but they are not properly uploading.

    Look at that grin while your rock scrambling in the steep. Thats why I really enjoy hunting the mountains. I showed a few deer photos to a guy I work with today. He didn't want to see the dead deer. He wanted to see the mountains! He then said how he misses climbing those hills. Good work, it's a fine looking ram.

    Love, love, love that area! I was just thinking this morning that I hadn't seen any 14C reports yet. The weather hasn't been perfect, and every time I see the mountains shrouded in clouds I think about the people up there holed up in their tents waiting for a break in the visibility. Well done, sir!

    Nice job, looks like pretty slippery conditions. Couldn't have been easy with all the rain we've had.

    Congrats.

    thanks for the replies, probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. While I was scrambling the whole ram up a 600 ft near verticle slide, I was thinking I must have stripped a gear or something, I've done lost my mind! Can't wait to do it again.....next year though.

    Rugged hunting T-storm. Great job. Fine trophy and eats. There is no "gimme" sheep hunt.

    T-Storm, boy it looks like you earned that one! When you're too old to get out there, you can always glance up and smile. Good job.

    Any sheep is a good sheep... Rams just look cooler.

    I concur with wingshooter12g. I've been blessed to take 2 DCU rams (2001&2003), and helped a bro with another in 2006.
    I drew this party tag with my wife. Bittersweetly, she is due to deliver our first born the last week of August, go figure. :-/
    I met her a few years after I had taken the 2 DCU rams. I was blessed yet again to take a 6x6 Wyoming elk in Oct. 2010 (God is great!) and the eating was amazing! I told her that sheep meat is even better. She has been open to the idea of me going to get one critter in the freezer. I will be doing a lot of scouting this summer including potentially flying the area. God willing, I'll be up there opening day with one in my sights.
    t-storm, any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
