    Default How about a sheep hunting "Sticky"?

    Whether you live in Alaska or down here in the other "48", the sheep hunts are the most memorable, detailed and informative to read. Many of the hunters "knock themselves out" writing these and we all appreciate that. I wonder if the Mods would consider creating a separate "Sticky" so we can keep track of them and go back and re-read them. Just a thought.

    I'll tell you about my most memorable sheep hunt right here. I was sitting there on the mountain looking at another mountain through my spotting scope - not seeing anything - when a beaver waddled up behind me and stole my Mountain House. Craziest thing I ever saw. 3,500' up the mountain and a beaver stole my Mountain House.

    Are you sure it wasn't a Giant Short Tailed Mountain Beaver??? This one almost took me out this fall.



    Look what he did to this poor calf!!!




    On a serious note I would like to see a sticky with sheep hunt reports.

    I thought beavers only ate wood.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    I'm sorry for my part in this. It's probably 90% my fault, and 100% on this thread. If you'd like to see where it all started, check out the thread titled "Banned for Life." I believe this spawned among duck hunters. Go figure.

    About the sheep sticky... they should just modify the front page of the hunting section to say "Before you even ask, .270 is more than enough and get a synthetic sleeping bag. Now begin your new thread about sheep hunting."

    I guess that you have never witnessed the scissor. They can be carnivorous.
