I guess my karma level is higher than I thought. First time applying for a sheep permit and I'm drawn.....

It will be my first backpack hunt since my childhood on Adak 30 some years ago.

Need boots for sure due to my old man ankles.

Congratulations! Start your cardio workout now! Boots are most important gear of all, find boots comfortable for your own foot and made for alpine hiking.

Rebuilding the lost posts. Edit: I really hate mobile photobucket.

This ram was taken in 1972. I am using what I know of the story as inspiration for my hunt this year. I hope it inspires others. When I write up my hunt story I'll also include what I know about this ram. It's history has effected everyone that has hunted the TMA since 1974.

Will repost my previous comment to the best of my ability! I am excited to hear all about your training and your hunt Ray, as well as the story of the ram in the photo. I think you are going to have quite the year!!

Your karma must be a whole lot better than mine. I've been putting in for this tag for going on 20 years now, and still a no draw. Any ideas on how to better my karma? I did pull someone out of the ditch last week, maybe this will be reflected on next years tag :) Congrats, and I hope you have a great hunt.

I drew TMA in '07. Dropped off on a ridge at 5000 ft. Can't wait to draw again, would go back to the same place!
