    well im back after an amazing hunt and while the weather with rain snow sleet and more rain tried its best against us managed to score my first sheep.

    the terrain was very rough and the sheep was at the top of a bluff about 1000 feet above the base of a valley (where we spotted him) that sat at at about 5000 feet already. had to rock climb to get to him and ended up taking a shot at 275 at aprox a 45 deg angle to the sheep. the pics don't do the terrain or the scenery justice it was very tough and incredibly beautiful.
