+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!!!!!

Anticipation

Anticipation

9 days until I leave, but who's counting? --Every real sheep hunter is counting. Anticipation is half the fun, at least.

Look carefully before you shoot. And make that first arrow count. I'm more excited than I have been in many years

No fires this year to keep us out of the mountains. We are all in shape, shooting well, and the stage is set. Good luck to all of you fellow sheep hunters.

tony;

it is nice to see you on here. i hope you will stop by from time to time to dispense some wisdom. i enjoyed your books. i have six more weeks to wait till my turn comes.

we should make a thread on how all the sheep hunters do and how the conditions were.

good luck to everyone.

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.

I'll be looking forward to your reports and pictures.. Hope theres a couple of good rams left.. Les

John, have you thought about dropping water into the area you might choose while scouting? Might save some work....
Be safe up there...

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!
