  • Trojan Ram?

    Just curious if anyone has ever dressing in white and tried the trojan ram scenerio on dall sheep? Does it really work in certain circumstances or is it just an old wives tale? I would think that it may be worth wearing white if it snows and if works to trick a ram it may also have a 2nd use? Thanks!

      It works better if you use gamebags.

      I have used gamebags as decoys to make a valley look good for rams. I would set them up so that they would have vertical placement and then change them before it got light. The idea is not to make them look like rams but instead like ewes. You put them close to your camp but not too close(300yards) This keeps the sheep in the general area settled. I think that some of the Argali hunters do this in Kazakstan.

      I wouldn't use overwhites unless it was a last ditch scenario.

      The best advice I would give to you is to behave like a sniper. Practice sneaking up on stuff. Get into the country with a minimum of disruption. You never want any thing to notice your presence. This is what made us the dominant critter on the food chain.

      Get into a position that the sheep never get an opportunity to see you and then hit them and approach them from a elevated position.

                Not so sure....

                I don't know Dennis - I have read a lot on the forum - but somehow I don't think that it adds up to but a small % of the info you have hidden in your head......

                As spring approaches I am still interested in picking out tidbits of that information though....I do have maps........
