    Default Thinking about a last ditch sheep run

    I am thinking about making a last ditch poke at sheep this weekend. Odds of connecting are very poor but odds of a couple days in the mountains are 100% and for me that is reason enough. Would be nice to have someone to head out with, preferably someone who already has a sheep in the freezer. I would be happy to help pack out a bear.

    I plan to leave Friday right after work, punch in and set up a base camp then do a 7-10 mile loop up into a drainage probably spiking out 1 night then back late Sunday.

    Ah...man, if I had known a couple of days ago I would have jumped at the chance. As it is, I've already agreed to make a last-ditch attempt at moose on Sunday. Good luck to you.

    Hey the forum works!! Funny Brian I just shot you a message on Facebook. Guess I got the answer:shoot: anyway I may just go solo though the recent bout of tragedy has me less than thrilled about that.

    Jon, good luck. I really hope you get one. You deserve it after helping me pack mine down off Mt. Doom. That was one nasty mountain. Your partner this go-round is twice the sheep hunter I am so hopefully you and Chuck can make it happen.

    Par for course I guess given the past couple years but out of the blue this afternoon I get called and told I have to work all weekend.... Sure sucks being a salary guy sometimes but at least the pay is steady.
