    Default 2012 Brooks Range Quest

    Well time has finally arrived.Headed to Fairbanks for the flight out tomorrow.The sheep bug has already set in when me and lujon were 900 yards from two very close to legal talkeetna rams on opening day.They fed right to were we were gonna be set up for the shot!Just ran out of time.

    Should come home with some video and pics of mossyhorns and my ram!!Good luck to you sheep nuts that haven't headed out yet and to those that are still out there at it.Keep it safe,no critter is worth your life!!

    Heck yeah! Go kill a HAWG then come back and help me knock over one just a bit bigger! Don't be afraid to get it done the first day or two and get an early flight out. We can certainly use the extra time checking a couple other nooks and crannies to see if those guys grandpa's are hiding a little deeper n there.

    I want to do a nice write up with pics and hopefully the video of the kill shot. It's some good footage that Jerome took. We got home at 11:30 last night and I just got my sheep sealed, 39 1/4" on the long side, about a curl and a quarter. Like I said, I want to do a nice write up and it'll just take me some time to sit down. It will be worth it...

    Awesome! I don't know anyone on this forum that gets after it more, or better than Kotton. One of the features I really love on rams is that heavy, pronounced cap/ridge that you have on yours.

    Anyone have any advice on how to upload a video online? I tried Photobucket but the video sucks, it's all choppy. I've never done this before.

    Go with YouTube. They have info for format, size, etc making it pretty easy. I'm in ANC. Be happy to help if you need it.
