    Default dads sheep......

    dad and i did a last minute walk in (lucked out with a flight out of the mountains though) and connected on a nice, heavy ten year old...it was one of the most important hunts of my life. i've been haunted by unavoidable obstacles on dads last two sheep hunts...but this year we found a nice ram for him. it was awsome. i needed that personal hunt very badly! cant say enough about dad toughing it out with me. he did fantastic at 62 on a walk in hunt that most guys avoid due to brush...we put in the work and were rewarded with calm sheep that werent being pressured. a tougher hunt in lots of ways...but it paid off. he's not as long as some ten year olds get in that country, but he's got good mass, age, and character...im quite proud of him...and my dad.077.jpg060.jpg

    Fantastic! I hope I'm still able to do that in 9 years like your dad!

    Zach,

    I'm currently sitting in the camp you took off from. Heard the story from the "locals" and know exactly what you went through getting there. Very impressive.

    My dad is going out with me chasing in the morning. Hope we have the same luck!

    Yk

    Zack that's awesome. Your dad must be a stud to pull that off. Great hunt for sure.. There is something about those father son hunts.... None of my hunts ever came as close as the ones I did with my dad... Enjoy the time and cherish the memories..

    Looking at you, I'm sure you will be. Now me, on the other hand, doing it in another 5 years, well lets just say that it sure is an inspiration for me that's for sure! Did your Dad get into a regimented exercise program Zack?

    thanks tons for the kind words guys!

    kaha: your right, times in the mnts with family are priceless.

    yellowknife: good luck! i hope that stretch of the range enables your dad and you to get your "fix" also...

    dave, 4mer, Snyd: Dads just tough. he's still very active, and still works with his hands at his age. sure, he exercises on a stepper three or four times a week, but what excericise can a texan do to really prepare for a walk in sheep hunt? he just toughed it out and kept going. it was neat to see him do it...he's always been tough, but his age is indeed catching up....i think it was just as important that he could still dig deep at his age to me as it was to him. its so **** hard seeing the rock you were raised by grow old ya know? thanks for the kind words...he'd appreciate it coming from a bunch of sheep hunters
