    Kuiu mountain star vs Hilleberg Akto vs Niak

    From my experience for goat and sheep hunting, you typically aren't in heavy buggy areas for the duration of the hunt. An exception might be the very beginning or very end of the hunt when you're at lower elevations or moving through different drainages. Bugs haven't been a major issue for me...

    Kuiu mountain star vs Hilleberg Akto vs Niak

    If weight savings are a big consideration for you, what about a floorless tipi? You may have already ruled those out for other reasons, but thought I would mention it. I've used both the HMG Ultamid 2 and 4 for mountain hunts up here in Alaska and they've served their purpose well. Those are...

    Sheep Tarps

    I got an email with a coupon code, maybe since I’m a repeat customer. You can PM me if you’d like and I’ll share it. If you didn’t want to pay the higher price for anything Cuben Fiber, the Seek Outside DST tarp looked intriguing and probably what I would go with as a second choice. That...

    Sheep Tarps

    Both myself and my sheep hunting partner have used the Hyperlite Mountain Gear 8’x10’ flat tarp. It’s probably the lightest you can find since it’s cuben fiber. Not cheap, but it’s certainly worth it. I think if you sign up for emails HMG is offering a 20% off code now. Would be a good time to...

    Quality of Rams on Guided Hunts

    I can certainly envision situations where this would occur with outfitters/guides. Let me offer a counter thought though, based off some of my experiences talking with sheep hunting guides in areas I've hunted. Some outfitters/guides might offer a discounted rate the following year to a hunter...

    Quality of Rams on Guided Hunts

    For a 38" ram in a harvest ticket area of 20A, you sure as heck did!

    What to Feed Fierce Carbon Fury

    My Carbon Fury 300 win mag likes Barnes 180 TTSX, it did not like Barnes 190 LRX for some reason. It shot 200 ELDX and Nosler Accubonds well too.

    How did this hunt turn out for the OP, did you shoot a nice bull? Willing to share some pics or a story?

    Alaska DG345

    Here, I’ll remove my previous comments to err on the side of caution. Although, I am still of the opinion that these are so hard to draw it’s kind of irrelevant anyways. Thinhorn, if you have more questions about access you can PM me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Alaska DG345

    All of these are already less than about 1-2%. The low odds might deter people by itself anyways. So it’s not like these are hidden gems. Generally speaking, if someone wants better odds to to draw a goat tag, they shouldn’t apply for one on the road system. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What do you mean by easier access? As in, tags on the road system only or ones that would require water taxi or float plane drop off? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Alaska DG345

    How about the guys who drew DG342? MooreAK and Kaveman907, how did it turn out for ya? I didn't make it out to chase goats near that tag this year, but I was paying attention to the weather. Wind and seas looked pretty rough most of mid-late September.

    AK Sheep, Population Observations

    A little sneak preview on the Draw Supplement. I picked up the 2022-2023 at DF&G's office in town today. For the TMA, DS102 will have 10 permits available. There is no DS103. They combined them both as one for the whole season. There is language added that the intent is to maintain "trophy...

    AK Sheep, Population Observations

    Not to derail this too much from the actual topic, but your language here implies that residents with aircraft are the only ones engaging in this activity. I've witnessed guided outfits do the ol' "oh, just going for a scenic evening flight" or "just heading back into town to pick up supplies...

    AK Sheep, Population Observations

    I can't help but think of someone lobbing pop shots at the rams along the Seward Hwy when I think of "done in a day sheep hunts!" I guess I must have missed the glory years!
