    Default A big year for me

    Two first's for me this year. A nice ram and an adult but no where near ready to draw from his 401K billie. Both average at best but legal and I dang sure worked for them! My hunting partner on each of these hunts also harvested. The goat was on Kodiak, the sheep was in the mountains. I'm blessed with more than I deserve.

    That, sir, is the very definition of a phenomenal season. There are no two animals I'd rather bring home than a sheep and a goat. Getting both in one season is quite an accomplishment. Thanks for sharing!

    Well done. I didnt get any white animals in 2010 but got a nice billie in Oct. 2009. I think Steve had a great year too. This guy is moose hunting all over the state! I think he got a nice sheep too. Must not have to work anymore! I sure enjoy all the posts here!

    I took a Ram and a Goat last fall. It was quite the season. The biggest trophy though was the birth of my first child a few months after hunting season.

    The goat and ram wer taken about 11 days apart from each other, with a combinded total walked distance of about 80 miles... I was pooped when the hunting season was over!

    Nice work Yogi. I didn't get to drop the hammer on either a sheep or a goat this year, so I am envious of you know doubt. Well earned animals of which you deserve.

    Dude, you rock! I know you and no one deserves more good fortune, in my opinion, than you. I know you are equally content with your full freezer as you are with your animals/accomplishments of a life-time. Sorry to rat you out, but not bad for a male-nurse!
