    Default Sheep and snow...

    well i'm in line now, my sheep tag starts tomorrow the 18th and i've had my eye on some rams but can't find them now that the snow has moved in, might just not be able to see them from 4 miles out, but i haven't dealt much with sheep and snow...any one know much about the sheep in the park and how they operate when the snow hits? do they pretty much keep to their habits or do they move around to south facing slopes? just a general idea i knwo they are like woman and can sometimes do some weird stuff that i'll never understand.

    Default From what I have seen

    snow drives them lower when the snow is high. I am not an expert or anything. South facing slopes kinda makes sense, sounds good but not sure if they would or not. I have not even hunted them yet. But have seen them. I hear the same with goats in PWS. Is this your personal hunt? You going in Chugach Units? Good luck man. Oh I hear ya about the woman thing.

    ya this is in the park, only sheep hunt i can pull off if its a day or two sheep hunt.
    Ya the kids still recognize me, but they get mad if i come home from a hunt and theres no bear in the back of the truck, they climb in the cab and start going thru the tubs "bar in dis one daddy?" ", "bar in dis one?" cracks me up, then they have to help me salt the thing, took the wife a second to be ok with this! lol its all good know, they help me flesh, but they use a screwdriver, he's only 3...no knife yet.

    Default Tag

    Where's your tag at? I may have some insight for you. Got back a week ago from a sheep hunt in the park.

    brwnbear;

    i drew the park for the last hunt in 2006 and hunted in the snow.

    The sheep will be forced lower, the bigger rams will be the last to come down.

    bring over whites, sunglasses, walking stick or ice ax, crampons.
