10 Year Old Ram On The 10th Day Of A 10 Day Hunt

Quote:
Where to start? I guess the beginning is actually when I moved my family to Wyoming 25 years ago. As a hunter it is a great place to be. I started applying for a sheep within a couple of years of arriving. Not every year, but probably every other year. Then things changed in 1994 as Wyoming went to a preference point system for moose and sheep. Each year you apply you get a preference point. 75% of the licenses are allocated to those with the maximum number of preference points. Wyoming issues less than 250 sheep licenses each year, but eventually I knew I would draw a sheep license. I had applied for areas 2, 3 and 5, depending on the year. I missed a year when they moved the application date cutoff up a month a few years ago. In 2011 I had spoken to John Porter of Morning Creek outfitters and decided to try area 2.

    Bruce,

    From Ririe, eh? Won't hold that against ya.

    You set one heck of an example!

    I guess I'll just have to buck up and get with the program. With the motivation from your story I think I'll give it a good go. In fact, headed out back of the house in about a half hour to help son get a shot at a buck and/or bull.

    Great hunt!!!!

    Great story!! Gets the sheep blood pumping. I'm sitting on 10 points for Wyoming but staring to get a little long in the tooth.
