I have already shared part of this story in a nother thread but was my hardest hunt ever and thought I would share,seems everyone enjoys a sheep hunt report....
while eating lunch last spring,I was wondering when the results from the draw would be out.I called a buddie and he said they were already out and looked up my name.He told me I drew a 14c sheep tag.You should of seen the looks I was getting because of the way I was jumping around and hollering.
I have been puting money in there with no sucsess for years and to draw the crown jewl of tags I was exited to say the least.All I could do was think and talk sheep for the next couple of months,my wife was very annoyed but I couldn't help it.
Finaly there was enough snow melted of the mountians so I could start my training.I find if I just go hikeing with my pack on and do alot of walking,It makes me more of a succsesful hunter because I can go futher into places and have enough energy left in me to walk around the mountian for a week and if succesful make it out safely.
Agust finaly came around and my tag was for the second opening so we planned on scouting it out before the first opener.me and two friends made it into the area I planed to hunt.we spotted a couple rams that we could say were legal,but were other rams we could not make out,we packed light and didn't bring the spotting scope.
With all these sheep around I thought for sure we would see some hunters with the seven tags they give out for the area.Night fall came whith no pepole sightings.
