Premier Night

What a great way to get a bunch of secretive, paranoid and reclusive sheep hunters together so we could all lie about where we shot our rams.

Premier Night Crowd

The premiere showing of Lace 'em Up (just the sheep hunt DVD in the two DVD package) was a great evening.  The line of tables full of appetizers that the gals put together were amazing and people came to enjoy the show.  It was a great turnout of folks that appreciate Dall sheep and the effort it takes to pursue them in the high country.  Thanks for coming, it was a fun way to get the word out regarding who and what Proving Trail Adventures is.

Sheep Display

Steve and I put up a Dall Sheep display that that had plenty of wrong guesses made on aging rams and plenty of "someday" thoughts filling heads with wonder at an impressive 173" ram that was loaned to us from Joe LoMonaco.  Thanks to Joe for the use of his three rams, Jerry Ralson's (far left) and Joel Brown's (bottom right) rams.  Other than the euro mounts on the table, Steve and I can only claim the ram from the top right.  A 40.5" ram that Steve had seen a year prior and passed on some advise that helped me harvest him as my first ram.  I could have stood there admiring that impressive display of fullcurlage the entire evening.
