My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: transfered post

Mike,
Damnation! That's a beaute!!! I'm so proud of you! And I'm soooooo green with envy! Now don't skimp on a taxidermist.

Incidentally, I found your comments about the frustrations of hunting game like moose and bear reflective of the very reasons why I've gotten to the point where I care little for hunting whitetail deer (i.e. if you do stumble onto them, it's practically in a literal sense).

Best,
Dave

HB,

Trust me I use a very good taxidermist. He does real life like work. A true artisan.

Thanx for the compliment! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

WOW!
And to think that you call that fun!

Congratulations on the great experience. I hope you get a chance to repeat it someday, especially along side your buddy.

Re: transfered post

Oh, my muscles ache just reading this. I have hunted Dall's sheep in the Wrangell mountains and know a little of what you went through. Twice I was skunked when I had to quit hunting very early because of knee problems. Both were horseback hunts and the big, broad-backed horses loosened up my knee parts and then when I hiked they got dangerously sore so I had to quit.

I sure respect and envy what you did. Nice job!

Re: transfered post

Trust me! I dont want to repeat that hunt! It was rewarding, but.... Its awfull hard on a guys back and knees. I am starting to guide for sheep this up and coming august. I will have to get into MAJOR shape by then. Hopefully I will help some guys get some nicer ones and have even better stories to write. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]


Len, who was your guide? Also were you on the Nebesna side or the MCarthy side? Did you see ant sheep or better yet any rams?
