Well it finally happened. I was lucky enough to chase and bring home my first ram (emphasis hopefully on first!), an 11 1/2 year old Yukon Dall. A dall sheep is what I have dreamed about as the pinnacle of hunting since I was little kid (and Stid's threads have really fueled the fire). Eight years ago a friend and I made a pact to hunt dalls together if we ever did it. Two years ago we booked it. In August we got our rams. I have hunted bighorn ewes, mountain goats, elk, muleys and a lot in between but nothing compares to the feeling of seeing and chasing a ram. A big thank you to many people here on Rokslide who helped me with gear questions and provided a lot of encouragement. Its a daunting task to make the commitment and I felt better prepared from the support and experience of others.
