I just thought I would share a few pics from a recent sheep hunt. Descriptors of the hunt would be easy access, sub-legal rams, WET, rain, fog, low clouds, poor visibility, lot's of "tent time", sheep tag remains valid.
Interestingly enough, we spotted 25 rams in a group of 45 sheep, one of which we thought MIGHT be legal. We couldn't get closer until the sheep moved so we were hunkered behind a rock face shivering in the wind, rain, and sleet! Then we hear a gunshot, I'm like, hey, that was a gunshot! Buddy says just a rock falling, I'm like whatever, but was too stinkin cold to get out of the fetal psition to look around the rock face at the rams. So about 10 mins later I get up and look around the rock face and all the rams (except one) are looking back at there dead leader! It appears an out of state outfitter (info gathered later) whacked the ram we hoped might be legal! I assume the ram was legal, hope so, but dang the luck!
