So I have been thinking about this so I thought I would post it up.. So heres the deal I have a bad knee and a sheep tag..bad combo..lol Well as soon as I drew my tag I made a call for a packer/helper and found one. Thought I would offer here for a second helper to come along.. Looking to give a newbie or not so newbie a chance to come along on what potentially could be a great hunt.. What I want is somewone who is eager to learn and willing to work for the end goal..
What to expect: HELL..lol expect to be in pain every day,expect heavy packs,expect to be hungary,expect to be cold and wet,expect to cry(yes I have seen hunters cry),expect to want to quit but know you cant..
So whats in it for you: a chance to learn sheep hunting, an adventure, a slim chance at a blackie on the way out..
About me: semi retired guide(thats what we call it when we dont know enough is enough.) who worked many years for one of the premier sheephunting/brown bear outfitters in the state as wells as several other outfits from the interior to kodiak to the peninsula.. so I have a little experience to share and I am accustomed to hunting with strangers..
The hunt will happen regardless and to me quitting is not an option.. Mental toughness is more important then physical(of course physical is important) but a blend of both is a good thing. I pace my self to be steady not fast so the trip in wont be too bad...well except for the brush...lol BTW its a walk in.. This is not a camping trip so dont expect to be chillin at the tent.. Only personal gear is required(a pack would be great to have) and of course we will have to meet up well in advance to see if personalities click. I put a lot of thought into this as I think its important to give back sometimes and yes its cheap labor too..lol I only ask that you dont waste my time and put some thought into it first.. This will be a hunt till you harvest type of hunt. I am going in around the 7th of Aug and coming out around the 25th.. I know this is a long time so if you can only do a week it still may work out.. NO details will be given to where we are going or how we are getting in...
Let me know what you all think..
