With winter here and some definite Cabin Fever setting in I figured I might as well share my first sheep hunt! What a trip it was and words wonít do it justice but I really enjoy reading others reports and seeing their pictures. Almost everything I learned about sheep hunting prior to actually going was off of this forum. Gradually I accumulated all of the items I thought were essential and before I knew it the day to jump in the plane was here. Luckily I have a friend with a plane or this probably wouldnít have happened.
We took off on Saturday the 7th at about 7:30 p.m. and the next thing I knew I was standing all alone on a ridge at 8:30 with a long hike ahead of me. I grew up in the southeast hunting deer so to say this was a new experience is an understatement! I took some pictures of the Caribou within a few hundred yards of where I was standing and then I waddled off with my 65 pound pack. I had six miles to go before I reached the first mountain I wanted to scout over. I made it two miles that first night before I hit the sack at 11 p.m. and I saw a nice moose along the way.
