Thanks for the great story and pictures guys. Sounds like you had a blast. Great Ram and Wolf taken as well! I hope in the future I will be able to do one of these trips with some friends of mine as well. Good job changing the minds of your guides and showing them what the LRH guys can do
Congratulations! I know that is spectacular scenery because I hunted sheep twice with Terry. What a colorful character.
On my first hunt my buddy got a nice Dall ram. On both hunts I had to quit early because my knees protested vigorously. I think at least 1/2, probably 3/4 of the knee problem was caused by too many hours on those especially broad horses. Terry buys or breeds them big to be strong in the harsh conditions.
On the second hunt I thought I had it figured out. I would just walk the whole hunt. But...the river bed right at the starting point was flooded. It took us a few hours on horseback to find our way along and finally across the broad river bed which must have had a dozen little streamlets to cross. There was no way to walk it.
We also saw caribou. No wolves. On the second hunt my son had a close encounter with a grizz while on horseback.
Thanks to everyone for your replies. Sure is nice to be able to share the hunt with all of you.
I'm probably going to hunt the area again in '09, need to fill that Grizzly tag.
Anyone interested in joining me?
Len, you hit the nail on the head, Terry sure is a colorful character. Been friends with him for years.
His area is 65 miles by 55 miles, and one of the best around.
He's had my heart in my throat in the Supercub more times than I care to remember. Absolutely trust his flying ability.
Called a combo hunt, we opted to hunt sheep, and we were in sheep country. A bear can be found anywhere and we found bear sign high up. A griz would have been a great bonus on this hunt. As was Joel's wolf. A moose was not very likely where and when we were hunting.
Lincoln Neb, will be spending the nite at the Motel Six there in a few weeks. God willing and the river don't rise. On the way to CO for an elk hunt. Its just about 1100 mi from my place, do that the first day out. Then slow down abit and enjoy the scenery.
Have a safe hunt.
