I am planning my first sheep hunt for the fall and have plenty of time to do my scouting through the summer.
The thing that worries me isn't finding sheep it's being properly equipped when the season roles around. Late in the fall I have never hunted in the mountains and have never targeted sheep.
As far as optics I have been told to get a spotting scope (up to at least 48x, I have a 35x but am considering newer optics) any suggestions?
I am also looking at a new sleeping bag and debating if a 15 degree or a 0 degree would be better. I am looking at the mountain hardwear down ones, light weight I figure.
These are the two major weaknesses I perceive I may have out of all my gear. Any suggestions of things people may have found of special importance would be welcome!
