    Congrats!!!!! Pull the roast out of the oven at 149' and you won't be dissapointed!!

    Here's one from the NWT on July 18th.

    My partner killed this one as I hand signalled from the next mt. 4 more days and we couldn't find another that tweaked my interest. All the 7 and 8yr olds we saw should make for an interesting trip next year!!

    On a side note...there were 2....yes 2 15yr old pick-ups in this area by hikers earlier in the year!!! My sights were set a little high

    This dog is from your part of the world......Soldotna actually.

    All the best and have a great season......guiding for bou for the next friday for a month and a bit so I'll bring back a few pics for ya

    Yah I know.....and ya can't see the 3rd one!!

    They pegged him at 300yds and he didn't get a shot off till they were moving over the top. He hit it and it turned around and ran back towards him and at 260 he hit him again........and then broke the front

    This was his first sheep although he did hunt with me last year but he did not have a tag because of residency requirements. I think he was just a little bit excited

    Yes that is one of Susan and Rowland's dogs (McKinley). We got her when she was 4 yrs old and pregnant. Her parents are Bearunoff and Koyuk and she was bred to Eska. She had 8 pups and we kept 2 of them. The rest are scattered across norther BC and the NWT. I sure sleep like a log with her outside my tent....awesome dogs!!

    Reminds me....I should send some pics to Susan. I've never met them but have had a fantastic experience as a "client" of theirs. They seem like really nice people IMO.

    Respectfully,

    tm

    Default congrats

    What I would do to be home and sheep hunting!!!! Will be back in the middle of September.

    Anyone have a close to the road honey hole that has a full curl up in it that I could blast into with only a couple days of the season left?????!!!!!!

    Might as well ask for ride in there and someone to pack it out as well!! LOL

    Congrats on the sheep, I am very much looking forward to next year.
