I thought I would post the story of my successful Chugach Park sheep hunt mainly because so many people here helped me out with information, and I wanted to share what worked and what I learned on my first successful sheep hunt. My 59 year old father-in-law was my partner. He hiked in to camp with me and stayed at camp while I hunted during the day. It was a challenge for him to get back to base camp, which was a 8 mile hike over mountain ridges gaining about 4000' vertical feet. My pack weighed more than I planned as I let him pack a lighter load, but it didn't bother me in the least. We went in with 2 weeks worth of food and supplies, and my pack weighed in at around 70 lbs, about 20 more than needed if the load was shared equally. I did take my crampons but didn't need them (should have taken that advice), but for the most part went with the recommendations from my post about sheep pack weight. I didn't feel I lacked anything, but didn't bring too much of anything other than food and fuel as we only ended up staying a week.
I covered a lot of ground during the next two days, going up over 6500' elevation and spotting a large group of rams across a valley from where I was. I decided to go back to camp and come around the other side of the peak then next day above them. The plan worked, and I came over at 6500' and the rams were down at about 4000' feeding. The smaller rams fed as the larger rams were bedded above them. After about an hour, the larger rams ran down the slope like they were in a race, and started feeding with the others. I was overly cautious about coming down to them, but didn't want to blow it. It took me about 2 hours sliding slowly on my a$^ and elbows down the rock slide to get into range (my a%s looks like I've taken a lashing). I got the ram at about 4 in the afternoon, and after boning it out on the edge of a dropoff (very exciting!), I decided to get ready to spend the night on the mountain. I had my sleeping bag, pad, Brooks Range jacket, and long underwear along. I had a footprint from one of my tents for shelter. It rained all night and the wind gusted at an estimated 70+ mph, but I was in a creek bottom where the wind wasn't quite as bad. I actually got 2-3 hours of sleep. The sleeping bag got wet but kept me warm. The pack out was very interesting indeed, having to pack the meat and horns and my gear back over the mountain, and then back to our pick up point (about 11.5-12 miles total). I learned a lot just watching sheep and their behavior. I was amazed that with 10+ pair of eyes, not one of them looked up to see me coming down on them. Here is my gear list and comments on how it worked.
Hilleberg Kaitum Tent - Outstanding. Lots of room for two and lighter than my other two man tents. We didn't stake it down that well, resulting in bent poles (Crazy winds!!). Hilleberg sent me new poles at no charge and they arrived in 2 days!!!
Scarpa Liskam Boots - Excellent stiff boots that held up well to the rocks and shale. Bring extra laces!!!
Sporthill 3SP Mountain Pants - I won't leave home with out them. I can't believe how quickly they dry.
Mountain Hardware Alchemy Jacket - Great windproof jacket that proved to be water resistant enough for even a downpour, and dried quickly.
Leupold RX-II Rangefinder - Leave them at home. Wouldn't range a group of sheep at 300 yards.
Zeiss 10x32 FL Binocs - Invaluable
Bausch & Lomb Elite 15-45 Spotting Scope - I found myself wanting more magnification. The extra weight of a Swarovski 20-60 would be worth it.
Barneys Frame and Pinnacle Pack - Wow. I won't use anything else. My father-in-law had a Cabelas Outfitter Pack and had nothing but problems keeping it adjusted and the buckle would not stay buckled under tension.
Leupold 2.5-8 w/B&C Reticle - Awesome for sheep. I don't know why you would need more magnification, and the lightweight and low profile were a plus
Thermarest Prolite 4 - Worth the weight and comfortable, even under a tarp!
North Face Big Fella 20 Degree Bag (similar to Cat's Meow) - Excellent. Plenty warm for a September sheep hunt, and kept me warm when it got wet. A little on the heavy side.
Barney's Brooks Range Jacket - I debated on taking this, but it's so light and compresses with my sleeping bag in a compression dry bag. I'm glad I brought it, but it wasn't necessary. A must on later hunts.
Outdoor Research Windstopper Gripper Gloves - Great lightweight windproof gloves, dried quickly.
Petzl Snowscopic Walking Ice Axe - Worked great, very nice when packing a load downhill. I found myself holding it incorrectly and cut my thumb up a little. (Oh well)
Thanks to everybody who provided informatin and advice!!
