    Default Representing SE

    Way to highlight the skills of a SE hunter. Dustin is a SE Alaskan man 100% and knows a thing or two about climbing mountains. He runs the hills down here after goats and deer.

    I was climbing in the rocks this week and thinking how much easier it was to run the mountains of the Brooks. The rock here in SE is much more unpredictable.

    Congrats on a fine trophy. I ran into Dustin at the airport on the return from helping you. He had a good time from the sounds of it.

    Thanks for sharing your hunt with us.

    Good sheep. From a non-res point of view, do you think you could have successfully hunted sheep without a guide? This age old question comes up real regular from non-res, as to why a guide is required. So it would be good to hear from those that actually care to comment.

    Default Nice!

    Great sheep! I got to meet Dustin as he got "smoked" out in Anchorage and drove up from Anchorage to Fairbanks with my sheep partner from Sitka. Dustin sure is a good guy! I hope to get down there and hit the goat mountains at some point. Been a long time since I had a goat on the ground!

    Thumbs up Chip off the ol' man

    Sounds like a great trip... Dustin's Dad (Scott McLeod - 'Raven') and I had some fine hunts and great camaraderie on rugged mountain and coastal trips with the late Ben Forbes out of Sitka back in the day... appears Dustin is a chip off his Big guide Dad... first class all the way! Congrats!
