We climbed knife top ridges and scree slides until we could hide no more. The big rams were still bedded, while two younger rams fed below...

    First sheep hunt

    I've lived in Alaska over 40 years and the sheep bug was planted early on. Bought my first scope. A Bausch & Lomb Discoverer and a Barney's pack frame, per recommendation from a sheep hunting co-worker in the early 80's. Yet I've never gone. Life happens, families form. Moose, Bou, Bear and...
