what elevation do you hunt them up in Alaska?The terrain is the limiting factor. As far as the ram goes they are not all the difficult to sneak up on if you have good terrain for a stalk. That being said it is usually tough to find a sheep in any terrain that is ideally suited for a close stalk. I wouldnt hesitate to shoot a sheep out to 45-50 yards if I have a good solid shot!
i'm sure it is and i envy all of you that have been fortunate enough to hunt them. i watched part 2 of my Adventure Bowhunter dvd last night and got to watch him go after Stone Sheep. i would love to hunt any Big Horn Sheep some day.It's not unreasonable to get within 20 yards depending on the terrain. Both my bighorn and my dall were in areas where I was able to put good stalks on several sheep. My bighorn was at 28 yards and my dall ended up being 70 yards...but I met him at four feet. It was pretty intense. However, during that dall sheep hunt, I was able to get to about 20 yards on two other sheep. Sheep hunting is just plain exciting!
