    Would love to hear the rest of the story!! Looks like Mr ram picked the wrong spot to hang out and the huntress didn't give him the opportunity to learn from his mistake! Congrats!

    That is just awesome! We're not getting out much this year due to a new little one, but my wife is my favorite hunting partner. We're planning a 2012 sheep hunt, so we'll be coming back to this thread for inspiration as the time approaches. Congratulations to the hunter and the lucky husband!

    It is great to see the ladies out getting it done. I have said it before that Alaskan girls kick but, however sheep hunting Alaskan girls really kick but. My wife will be green with envy. Great looking and really wide. Great shooting as well.

    Jeff, congrats to Kourtney! Those pics say it all. Great shooting too with the .308 at that distance. Really enjoying all the family and couple hunt stories this fall. Thanks for posting.
