Hey fella's
Been a lurker for a while. Was ref here by my buddy Austin. Lurked for a while too.

Born and raised in SWPA chasing whitetails. When i graduated HS i knew i wanted to 'come out west to hunt elk' Joined the AF and after a few years of bouncing around wound up in Albuquerque NM. I cant go back to the east and hunt now. The west is where i belong. Pack on back and glasses on my neck DIY on public land.

Been fortunate enough to draw some good tags here..

Here's a Ewe Big horn with a flintlock (PA style with a roundball)

And here's my first Muley with the same gun

Looking forward to the draw next week to start planning my fall. Hoping for a Couse hunt this year.

Keep the wind at your back
Jon

Great harvests with the smokepole. Can't say I've ever heard of a sheep with a muzz/roundball. Glad you're here.

Thanks guys!

Truth be told, the sheep hunt was pretty much a depredation hunt. The herd got bigger than the area could sustain. They were not very wild, so i decided to do it with something special.

That being said, it still wasnt easy. It was a wilderness hunt with my best hunting partner and we did it all on our backs 7 miles into the wilderness.
