It seems to be more accurate than multiplying the cosine by the distance its self. Thanks for your input.

    The owner's name is actually Brent. Keith is his last name. I have talked in great length several time with Brent. He seems ok.

    PS: As a dedicated and successfull AK dall sheep hunter, feel free to PM me anytime about any questions reguarding any regs, equipment, what to expect, know how ect.......

    The sheep bug will bite you hard. It stays in your blood.

    You are right about his name .. But it's not his real full name .. I think it's Michael Brent Keith...

    Hi VLD;
    There is nothing like sheep hunting in Alaska, been there done that.
    Your physical shape is not that impotent just hike & climb around where you live.
    You are going to get wet. and nothing is water Prof in Alaska!
    So get good pants & boots. Any of the 10x22 bino. Leica, Steiner and Zeiss are all you need. Sheep don't get up Early. and they don't stay up late.
    I hunted sheep 9 times in the [12] years I lived in Alaska. The best advice I got on sheep hunting was from my good Friend Clark Engel. He said get a nice pair of camp slippers for base camp. I wish was going with you. Good Luck.
    OH take a light rifle, caring a heavy one will get old fast!

    If you know how many guns you have you need to buy more
