Hey everyone, I am looking for some pointers on walk in Dall Sheep Hunting in the Brooks Range with my Dad. We are leaning towards this area to try and get further away from the population and therefore hunting pressure. I realize that since it is a walk in hunt there will always be a greater chance of running into other hunters. We will just try to hike farther. I read the Tony Russ book and a couple other books so I am starting to get a better idea of what we are getting into. We have done other big game hunts but not yet sheep so this will be our first attempt.
Does anyone have any lessons learned from hunting in this area?
Also, does anyone have any alternate suggestions for locations to get away from people? We are willing to drive anywhere in the state if it means less pressure, however flying is not in our budget. I do not need exact location (nor would I want it posted publicly, ha ha...). If you can point me in the general area then I can use topo maps to figure out the rest.
We appreciate any advice since we are going in cold. Oh, and we did put in for our three drawing hunts so this is just for a registration hunt, Thanks.
