Getting Too Old For Backpacks

Getting Too Old For Backpacks

I haven’t written any current stories because I haven’t been on any hunts since starting the blog.  That changed on September 2.  I went on a backpack sheep hunt with my grandson Jared and son-in-law Sagen.  I have been on over 50 sheep hunts and I will have to say this was one of my hardest.  I didn’t want to think it was my age but maybe it was just the 20 hours of fighting alder, devils club, willow and blow downs on the climb in and reversing it after one day of hunting.  That will get you no matter what age you are.  I have decided however, no more long backpack hunts.  So follow us on this short story with lots of photos of what I call a “brutal” hunt.
