    Default Mountain Men Show on History Channel Sheep Kill

    Needs some clarification. Morgan on Mountain Men killed a ewe sheep in Alaska. He said it was nine years old and probably finished with its breeding. When did this become legal to kill?

    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    I saw this last light. Was a young ram approximately 3-4yrs old from the looks of it. I was wondering where he was hunting.

    Had to chuckle when I saw the gun they let you use... at first it seemed like a cap gun. But you did manage to get er done. When do you get the 30-06 you reference?

    Well, in my uphill battle with the AST, I did three years of Felony probation with an SIS, suspended imposition of sentance of 6 years. After a flawless probation, I was still appealing my trial due to two audio forensic specialist reports that showed missing time on both troopers recording and specificly missing time on the recording that I made the complaint about, so the felonys gone, finalally since Nov. For 100% sure, Black Powder is legal for me for now, untill I get this resolved.


    Anyays, I chose and used a .50 BP to knock this guy over with, and a 12 gauge to finish him off, with ball. I actually took a second shot with the .50 at about 75 yards, but a hangfire of about 1 second had me way move the muzzle up and launch the lead about 45 feet over the Ox's head.

    Cold weather -25,-35 effected my powders performance, as well as making for some hard ignitions. That was my only hang up with these smoke poles,, and it's been good to be my "Self" again, as some might have read a story of two Ive posted here in the past.....

    They didnt show any "kill" or even a hit, but oh well, the camera guy then wasnt the usual , and I shuld have taken more time to get him zero'd in on the bulls out of the circle, but so many animals must have been "photable" ~~LOL!!~~ same as when were hunting Caribou, the camera often picks up on the group in front "the skinnys" when we target the ones in the back of the pack, looking for no babies, just chubbier butts.

    I hit him nce from a .50 and once from a 72cal. Neither exited, the .50 was a high lung'er, about 150 yard shot, the .72 was in the heart, about 20 feet away.

    Im still facing time for the misdemeanors I was convicted of, with the edited tapes, but thats still an issue. Now that Ive exhausted all State means, I can move onto Federal, and I did. Well, if I do end up in jail , its just a waste of my time. The wife and plenty of friends were there whan it happend and she's with me till its over, no problemo. If I do any time, then it will all be behind me and Ill be looking to buy an M-39 Im reconin'.....

    The 30-06 I reference was given away years ago to a friend. Still a great gun today, as far as I know, and if so, then it is in very capable hands too
    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    Few places up north have registration any sheep hunts that have the restriction of no aircraft use.
