Tomorrow afternoon at some point, weather permitting, starts my first Dall Sheep hunt. It will also be my first solo hunt that goes over night. I spent 10 years waiting for someone to go moose hunting with me, I wasn’t about to do the same for sheep. Two years of prep and for me a successful hunt will be going the planned 7 days barring any technical mishaps and seeing a ram, legal or not. Understandably the wife is none to happy about it so as long as the inReach and my phone stay charged I’ll keep her happy and consequently get to stay in the field for what I have planned out. My pack with 7 days of food and probably a whole bunch of crap I wont use is weighing in at 75lbs, I was afraid it would be north of 90lbs with all the crap I thought I needed. I’m looking forward to my 7 days in the Talkeetnas and sheep or no sheep its going to suck and be wet, rainy and miserable but I’ll be loving every minute of it. Happy hunting and good luck to everyone else heading out for their own sheep.
