    Default Awesome sheep hunt...minus the poachers on the night of the 9th!!!!

    Had a great walk in hunt!! Great weather and company. Not going into details of the poaching as it is still an ongoing investigation....but remember that seasons are established for a reason and the night of the 9th is not the same as the morning of the 10th!! Hated to see a good ram go that way. AST is all over this and are doing a great job. Never saw another legal ram but really enjoyed our sheep hunt. Saw caribou every day and a nice grizzly on the walk out...which walked. Bring on ptarmigan hunting..valdez halibut/salmon...and finally moose season!

    I was up in the mountains and was watching a group of three rams the biggest was almost legal but not quite, he was about 7/8 curl. A little while later another hunter came in from below us and spooked them off and followed them around the ridge (I am sure he had no idea we were there) a little while later we herd gunshots. I didnt go check but I am pretty sure that guy shot that ram and I know there were no other rams there. I hope he didnt shoot it because he will be a big ram next year I would guess he will be 38" when he hits full and he carried his mass all the way to the tips. Fun to watch though
