Sheep Hunt 2017 - Different, but the Same

  Shall I dare say it…we did a fly in hunt this year. Oh the humanity! Getting past all that, it’s a good story. Most fly in trips start out with a plane flying away deep in the heart of the sheep mountains, a monologue about being left alone in the middle of Alaska, reality […]

  Big flakes of a heavy, wet snow were quickly blanketing the 5,550’ ridge top we’d just gained. The climb had left us wet and bloodied.  We needed a place to set up the tent and hole up in this building storm and let our minds relax after a mentally taxing technical climb.  We didn’t […]

Ram Gulch

It was a strange feeling to not be in the sheep mountains on August 10th. I was anxious to get after some rams. I arrived in Anchorage on August 29th ready for Sheep Hunt 2013, Plan B. With Scott having already filled his tag, we adjusted our plans. We didn’t want to risk the possibility […]

Big Buck Double

After a day with the family and enough time to dry our gear and re-stock we had just enough time to attempt a big buck hunt. There was a small window of opportunity for some clear weather ahead. I decided to take Scott to the location of the buck from opening weekend. I knew there […]
