Drew my Oregon sheep tag!!!

Built a new .280AI this last winter with the hope that some day I could be carrying it's lighter load than my 15lb .338 Edge up and down the steep and rocky country that Oregon's California Bighorn Sheep call home. Deep down, never did I really think that this year I would actually be putting it to the test but lo and behold, on Thursday, June 19th at 1:17PM I looked up my drawing results and there was the SUCCESSFUL that everyone hopes to see. I've been walking on air ever since.

I had to go on a salmon fishing trip to Alaska last week (yep, just HAD to!! ) but now that I'm thankfully back, I can get full on into SHEEP mode - calling biologists, contacting prior tag holders, finding out landowners, lining up good friends to help, making damned sure that .280 shoots where I point it, etc.

I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Congrats on drawing your tag!
I'll just keep on applying with the hope that I'll be lucky like you some day! I bet your face is hurting from grinning so much
What unit did you draw?

Awesome!

Holly cow! Congrats. No idea how Oregon's sheep draw works but if it's anywhere near as convoluted as California's I'd say you did better than winning the lottery! Look forward to your results. Keep us posted on your scouting and range trips with your new sheep rifle. Us armchair sheep hunters will eat it up.

Really. Would love to hear the story. I was at the range this afternoon and spoke with a guy that drew an antelope tag for Hart Mountain. That was pure points that did that though.

Good luck on the hunt!
