    Default Sheep hunting trip...

    ...less a sheep
    Packed up an headed out last Monday for a 4 day sheep hunt.
    Plan was to head up a certain river which was "rumored" to be navigable.
    Well, look at the pictures. Maybe in an XS with a full teflon bottom, but it scared me plenty. Very milky water with lots of granite boulders lurking just beneath the surface. I have video of the nasty spot for any locals wanting some more info.
    Spent the rest of the trip scoping and chasing rams, but never did get close enough. Just as well, it was pretty hot, even up high.
    Nice trip though, great weather.

    Very cool pictures, it looks like you made up quite a ways, If my hunting partner sells his plane like he has been threatning to do...
    I will be lloking harder at some rivers that can get me close enough to make it possible.
    Bought a used Rokon this summer, only weighs 200 pounds and so far seems like it will go a lot places.
    When does sheep season open in the Yukon?
    No damage to your boat I hope?

    Actually, anyone from this neck of the woods would recognize that lake in an instant, the river however......

    Yukoner,

    Absolutely beautiful country, great pics. Did you go up the riffle in pic #19? Godevil would have got you farther <grin>. Either way, anything you can do to get closer sure helps. Thanks for sharing the pics,

    One mans riffle is another mans rapid Didn't even attempt it. Its basically a big boulder field with a bunch of water ripping through it. It would be fun to try it in a Teflon bottomed boat with an inboard, but i gave it a miss. It was a long way back to get into trouble.
    It is amazing country for sure. Ran into some friends (the only others we saw on the lake) who were sailing in a home made trimaran. They were having a great time in the stiff breezes.
