Fantastic adventures! Thanks so much for sharing
My rifle is a Kimber Adirondack in 6.5mm Creedmore with a Swaro Sheep hunter Z5 3.5-18x44 P L BT, with a turret dial made for my load by the Outdoorsman.Thanks Steve for sharing your hunt with us. Its always an epic adventure - one to read a few times to get the full feel of the event.
ALso thanks for the equipment seminar - as you can see, many here are willing students of your escapades! You didn't say, but by mentioning you are shooting 130gr. Accubonds in the Kimber is that a .270Win.?
Sorry, just saw this when I was rereading.Oh yeah that's right. I forgot about a 130 with that cartridge. So I should ask, who did the Kuiu camo pattern?
Thanks very much
Lookin’ good Steve! I didn’t think you had anymore room left in your house for sheep mounts.Got my ram back from this trip. Chris and my taxidermist surprised me with a image lasered into the leather. So pleased with the way it turned out. Frontier Taxidermy also mounted Chris's ram.
Dave Winney, he is in Valdez. Frontier Taxidermy is his shop. Beautiful ram and photo of ours this year by the way... Congrats Sir.Looks real nice Steve!
Is your taxidermist local? I need a new one as the one who used to work on my stuff is a crook/liar, etc. and the fella doing my sheep each year might only have a few years left in the business.
I have mailed cape and horns to him before, but also drove stuff down when fishing or got someone heading to or from to do it. Love Valdez and make a trip or two most years. Worth the drive, Dave does amazing work.Thanks Steve!
Do you drive your stuff down to him or is there an easier way to do all of that?
