+1 on that Frank. Remember I am hunting with a guy that goes in for 7 days at 30 lbs and counts his body fat losses for more than a couple meals!. Still havent quite figured that out but I am working on it. I can see them little white dots way up high already!!!!!
2nd that Tony. Really enjoy your sheep books. Have been reading and re-reading it. This will be my first sheep hunt. Very excited...Good luck to everyone. Enjoy this great land and what it has to offer.
Ditto on all the above. Thanks for the books Tony. This is the first year my hunting partner and I put in and we got DS203. Headed in on the 8th. Went with another friend 3 years ago. He had DS203. He got his ram and I got the bug. I had the pleasure of packing out his sheep. Hopefully I'll be packin mine this trip. Can't wait. Life is good.
I too would like to wish everyone safe and successful sheep hunts. It's fun to feel the youthful anticipation in the posts...sort of like Christmas. However, it is strange that we look forward to such a difficult physical and mental challange. I guess we do it because the mostly unexplainable rewards of hunting mountain game far outweigh the effort! I hope that everyone posts a hunt report with photos of rams or the country. I'm heading to Anchorage on Aug 31 for my hunt so I'll have a couple of weeks to chomp harder on the bit by reading your stories. Thanks for all of the great information these past few years.
My son and I are scheduled to hunt with Max Schwab of Talkeetna starting Sept 7.. our first trip to Alaska. My son drew a Rocky Mt Bighorn tag ten years ago, and I was privileged to video that hunt.. backpacked in to the Wyoming Range.. (I was ten years younger....hmmm)any how.. save one for us.. I'll be looking forward to your reports and pictures.. Hope theres a couple of good rams left.. Les
Dido above....good luck to everyone this year, have a safe trip! At least...so far...we won't be choking on smoke again! 1 month and 2 days until we head in for our adventure. Hopefully those early snows will stay up high and not down low!!!
Tony...really enjoying the Sheep Stalking in Alaska book....great read!
