                Water

                Not sure which area you are hunting or where you drew, but up where I was at good water was easy to find.
                I am not sure about your permit but if it covers both sides of the road to Valdez, check out the Halet.
                This is one area I was glad to see go permit. It was way over hunted by Transporter.
                Health providing in a few more years, I will start putting in for this draw,
                That's for Sheep, the Goat hunting has always been good. Took my 1st goat there

                      when guides talk to guides there are things in the converstion that just go flying by cause we take everything for granted...asking about water is one of those things. To paul its all old hat, second nature, not something he'd think to mention and something i'd forget to ask cause i'm hitting him with bigger questions, like logistics,gear, timing, weather blah blah
                      this time of year he's not the eaisest guy to get ahold of, much easier to type something and just check it whenver and get the info that way. Besides, everyone has different expereinces in the same location, good to get a broad perspective on things and go in with an open mind.
                      i just wanted pics of the areas to get an idea on terrain, asking about water availibity was something i didn't think of till someone mentioned "dry"and i saw the pics. I'm not gonna try to get ahold of paul just to ask him that...
                      don't worry, you won't see me in there with a sheep camp next year....settin' up dummy tents and spotting from the air...just wanted some geographical information.

                        Lots of water,hanging ice fields etc.......with goats you'll always find some water,i can't remember the last goat hunt that i went on and had any problem finding water,i'm confident that you will not have any problem....

                            I shot a ram just up the mountain behind Claus' camp in 2006. He buzzed us with his plane so I assumed that he was pleased with our success Three of us hiked from the river up to the top. Should of taken more H2O than we did. After the quart we each ahd ran out, we sucked on crow berries just to wet our mouths. One of our party found a small seep. He tried to drink from it but just got a mouthfull of mud. I was close to partaking as well as I was so thirsty. We luckily found a small stream at dark. Otherwise it would have been a long night and an even uglier trek down the next morning.

                            I learned form this experience to carry 3 liters of H2O with me if I don't know where my next water source is. **** the extra weight. When your tongue is swollen like a lizard frying on a flat rock in the sun, the mass of that water on your back feels good.

                              Barnard Glacier

                              Might of miss-spelled it, but if you find yourself over looking Barnard, Tip your hat to Marty Phelps, he is still up there somewhere. Tom was in the wrong place at the right time on a sheep hunt and got buried under an estimated 30 tons of Ice. According to all records Tom and his brother Mike was doing everything right, they were just in the wrong place at the right itme.
                              Awful lost of a great outdoorsman. THis happened in August, just after they completed summiting Denali with their Mom in July. She was the 1st blind person to make the summit. They did it unguided on thier 1st attempt!
                              So if you would. Please tip your hat to Marty for me.
                              Thanks!
