I have given my best on a few occasions to harvest a dall sheep by simply walking into the mountains from my truck. Each being harvest ticket hunts, every time getting a little closer to success and learning a lot along the way. I now feel that I have gained enough experience in the mountains that if I was to finally pay to fly-in, I could be successful. Yet there is still something that nags at me to be successful by walk in only prior to a fly-in hunt. It's almost as if I don't want to use a mechanical advantage until I have been successful the hard way, but the only way to truly get away from the "crowds" is to fly-in.
Who has successfully harvested a dall sheep by both walking in from the road and on a fly-in hunt? Did you find the level of satisfaction to be different depending on your mode of transportation to get into sheep country? This thread is not to take or diminish the challenge presented when flying in, would just like to hear the perspective from other hunters.
