    Default Got a Brooks Range Full Curl Sheep Today!!

    Got a full curl today, full curl tattoo that is. I can say that the fun wore off about 3 hours into the session, about half way done I started to have the artist just make it broomed!!! Now I remember why it has been 10 years since the last tattoo. I'll always come home with a legal ram now.

    Thought about using this one instead.



    No fronting here. Earned everyone including the tat.

    I don't know, that one looks a little short of full curl to me Steve, from where I'm sitting... Do you have any other pics from different angles... Can you get him to turn sideways and tilt his head just so for us? And he's awfully bloody!, what in the world did you shoot him with for crying out loud...!?

    It is a high pressure drainage but there is sheep in there. If your willing to work for one you should at least have a decent chance at finding a good one. Get in there early, before the opener if possible and hunt hard.

    Good luck

    Dosen't look like much room left for that Kodiak ten footer! That seventy inch moose is probably out of the question.

    Put the moose out front down low! Antlers on each side extending out. It could even have hair (some manscaping required).

    Seriously though, nice work Steve!

    I heard he's planning on the moose antlers across the lower back as a trampstamp.

    Post a couple pics after it heals and peals.

    Reed is by far the best realistic type artist in AK, probably west of the mississippi too!
