Here it is August 10 opening day of sheep season and my 72nd birthday and I’m at home. It feels a little strange as I have spent at least 35 of my last 50 birthdays chasing sheep. I’m going later this year with my grandsons Jared and Nathan and my son-in-law Sagen. We drew a late permit hunt in Carpenter Creek in the Chuguch Range so we will be going after the 26th.
I did want to post a sheep hunting story today so I chose one that is special to me. It was with Jared and his dad Sagen. It was actually a quest to get Jared one of those beautiful full curl rams. It took us three hunts. He was quite the hunter at 13 walking in 26 miles before we even started the hunt. That started our quest. Follow us along on the hunt as you read, “Back on the Mountain.”
