Well I usually don't share my stories out of laziness but thought is is time for me to contribute something.
I was a lucky winner for the 20A caribou hunt this year. My wife and I started out on the ATVs the morning before season opened and went in on one hell of a bumpy creek bottom for 15 miles. after spotting all day and riding up without seeing a thing we decided in the morning we were going to hike in for sheep and maybe see a caribou on the way. We hiked in over the first hills and start spotting sheep but all family groups no rams. after relaxing and spotting for about 30 minutes we find what looks to be a lone sheep way the hell and gone into the mountains. So far away I can barley tell it is a ram and certainly can't tell if it is a legal one. Convincing my wife to hike in after an animal we can't tell is legal that is so far away you can't see it with the naked eye through really crappy terrain was not easy but I did. so we head up about 2 miles and stopped to get a look...still can't tell if it is legal. ten minutes go by and here comes 2 nice bulls over a hill about 2 miles parallel from us (meaning no more up). Never seen the wife so excited I don't know if it was because caribou is her favorite game meat (it is) or because she now did not need to climb that freaking mountain. Anyways the hunt was on. It took about 45 minutes to get 600 hundred yards out. The wind was just circling I hate that! I was so nervous trying to pick my last approach that I finally just said forget it lets go. The wind apparently hates me as well. I just new they were going to wind us. well I got to 200 hundred yards low crawling and feeling like I just ran a marathon. I laid out and put one in the scope.....memorys of missing my beautiful brown bear on afognak 2 years ago at 75 yards!!!!!! came to mind and pissed me off for the 1000th time. so I decided to get to 150 yards. I had a nice little shelf to squat and run down toward them so I shuffled over. Both bou at the same time lifted up trying to find where the smell was coming from. I chambered a round and they immediately started jogging...well jogged 3 steps at least. I put one through the lower front shoulders and it was down before my eye left the scope. The most rewarding hunt I have done because it was the first with my wife! without a doubt the best hunting partner I have ever been in the field with and I have good partners. She did enjoy herself and loved the challenge. after we were back in the truck her comment was "I feel like I accomplished something and pushed myself beyond my comfort level" all I could think was YESSSSSS! I think she will go back out next year! sorry long winded. 120 lbs of meat 338 win mag
