    Re: Drew my Oregon sheep tag!!!

    About 5 yrs back my oldest step daughter drew a sheep tag for the Trout Ck mtns.
    She turned 14 a couple of weeks before her hunt, and used a 280 AI that I had built for her mother.

    This year I get to help a friend and his new wife scout for her W. Deshutes #1 hunt.
    They are a young couple and over the moon excited for her hunt.

    I have about 30 unsuccessful applications for my attempts at a tag for myself. But every year I can hardly wait to see if this will be "my year".

    Congrats and good luck on your hunt!!

    I'll save the text and let the pictures do the talking. Words can't really do justice to what a truly unique experience having a sheep tag is. HUGE thanks to Airohunter for all the help all summer long and during the hunt. And big thanks to Dave Smith for capturing the whole hunt on video. It's going to be a great being able to relive this for years to come. And thanks to the rest of the crew for the help and for sharing this experience with me. It means the world to me.



    Lots of summer scouting:



















    And the hunt:

    And since this is a shooting oriented site, I shot this with a fairly newly built Rem 721 in .280AI with a Bartlein #3 barrel with a Nathan Wright muzzlebrake shooting 180 Berger Hybrids with H1000. Shot ended up only being 212 yards down a 25 degree slope. Dropped in his tracks and rolled ~400 yards straight off the side of the hill and came to rest in a jungle in the creek bottom.

    Shouldn't Dave be making decoys not chasing sheep?

    I was there for his sheep hunt a few years ago and he was kind enough to come along on mine this year. I think it's easy to find some time for once in a lifetime tags. Plus he made a hell of a video camera man!
