Bryce's Sheep Hunt

After glassing miles of ridges and draws, locating a couple hundred white rocks, we finally located an actual live sheep. It had to be some five to six miles away but at least we could tell it was a ram. We set up the spotting scope and saw it was a nice full-curl ram. As we were setting up base camp, now something past 8:00 at night, a quick glance through the spotting scope was enough for some serious excitement. Out from behind a rock, right next to this full curl ram comes this "way past" full curl ram. Our best guess at that distance was 41/42". That discovery was not helpful in trying to get a good night's sleep. Read More...

    Congrats, very nice ram.
    Practicing long range hunting before a hunt like that would have made much easier your shot and hunt.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Your ram is a brute! Great write up as well. You obviously paid your dues with lots of miles logged both up and down... you earned him.

    Monster Ram! Great write up.

    It's always refreshing to read these stories where you find out you're not the only guy that's ever missed a shot or made a stupid decision in the field.

    I think it'd be worth moving to AK for a year or two just to be able to get a chance to make a few of these hunts even if a guy had to work sweeping floors or hauling garbage HA!

    Congrats again on what is truly a once in a lifetime kind of trophy animal.
