    Default Sheep hunt report????

    Anyone interested in my 2011 Sheep hunt report?? Don't want to bore anyone, but if there is some interest I will sit down and peck it out.

    I believe the usual consensus is that your hunt reports are entertaining, educational, and contain excellent pics. Doubt anyone would be "bored".

    Steve, I just put Jaimie in for a sheep draw permit - need all the insight I can get to prepare for the winning draw. Being a flat lander I will be out of my element trying to figure it out so all insight is welcome. You are number one on my list of people to call when she draws the permit.

    Okay will get it done. I only ask because I received some criticism about feeling a need to post about every trip I do. I like to share my hunts not to brag, but because the reports are what I enjoy the most on this forum and I like to give back to the forum that has given me so many years of information and entertainment. There was a time not long ago, that found me like many others here without a clue and hungry for information from those that were willing to share and help out a new person. I can't count the many valuable tips I have picked up reading this forum and only hope that I can in some way help others.

    Wow, negative PMs about posting trip reports?? Sounds like that new generation "I can't, so you shouldn't be allowed to" way of thinking. Post it up!!

    In my opinion, Hunt Reports are certainly THE best aspect of the Forums,

    Including photos of the animals harvested, as well as the camp cooking shots,
    gear used and tested, with info on results
    That stuff is Priceless

    Remembering back on what really pulled me into involvement on the AOD, when somewhere on a past thread,
    I found a set of links to several of Steve's past hunt reports, along with several others, like Bushrat's, etc.
    I went through reading them all

    and was so inspired by just the entertainment value,
    that I tore into doing the same last year with several of my hunts as well as other obscure outdoor activities

    Certainly, keep doing them all, and Thanks for taking the time and effort,
    They're really helping folks, even just getting through the dark winter months, Very Valuable

    Take a look at the number of views on those threads sometime,
    balance that against the one or two jealous, frustrated commenters

    Don't worry Steve. If there was any criticism, it was most likely made out of jealously on their part. Go ahead and share the story. And include your pictures.

    I understand people wanting to jealously guard hot spots and honey holes, but nobody owns those places or the wildlife that inhabit them. Even if someone's hotspot was divulged, you still have to draw tags, schedule transportation,spend money, time, and effort to actually go there and have success of your own. Human nature can be a petty thing when it comes to hunting spots and heirlooms.

    Watch the movie "The Island". A bunch of people get the privilege of experiencing a tropical island and before they know it, they are acting like they own it and are actively punishing people for trespassing. Not cool.

    If you ever get a chance to make it over to Steves (Stid) House , you need to check out his Slide shows of his sheep hunt and how he put it together...the guy is amazing. Not to mention he will also go out on limb for you, Kind of wish I still lived in North Pole ......really nice to have a friend like him around.

    I love reading reports and seeing photos from peoples' hunts. That's the best part of this forum.

    I dont think you can bore anyone with your write up skills.Can't wait for another great read,And I hope you don't think I'm one who showed criticism through p.m. I just wanted to read a good sheep hunt story from the master himself!

    Steve, when I post my hunts on this forum and others I try to copy what I see in yours. I am not yet in your ballpark but I am closing the gap! Those who prefer to not see your reports can go elsewhere-might I hazard a destination? (heck)sp.

    I really enjoy your reports Steve. Looking forward to this one!
