Default It could be 23! Desert Bighorn Sheep

Iím trying to get some stuff together so the wife and I can head out tomorrow for Elephant Mountain and the third leg of my Texas Grand Slam. We are scrambling to figure out logistics as my stepson broke his thumb in a 14U baseball game last night for the team I help coach. He is having surgery a week from today. Looks like we are taking two cars down so the wife can come back in case the hunt drags on. It is firestick only per tpwd so thatís what I am carrying!!!!

I do want to apologize for my lack of participation on TBH lately. I truly see this place as my family. Itís been the worst year of my life and only pray the dark cloud is about to pass. I lost my mother this year, had an emergency surgery, and have been through hell and back at work. There are many more things I canít even begin to discuss. I know things will improve, they always do!

Hopefully I can knock down a sheep in a few days before this old fat man has a heart attack. Then I can head back home with the wife and be there for juniors surgery and coach again next Friday. Iíll keep it as live as I can. Hunting days are only Monday through Friday so time is short. If I get this done it will be number 23/29 for me.

Great! Itís always the same on mountain hunts. Old, fat doc and some young skinny guide that can run through the mountains. Usually after a few hours of leaning you in the dust they realize they will need you there to kill the animal and sometimes show mercy! I have only had one chubby guide on a mountain hunt. He was the outfitters son and could still out hike me in pretty good shape. The joys of age and living in the flatlands!!!!

They should be able to get you on them in about half a day....

Tell them to skip the extras and get on to it, and youíll be back in plenty of time for the surgery.

Good luck!

The orthopedic hand surgeon is one of my wifeís best friends. I think we are covered. Junior will heal up. Gonna miss him on the team. He is a great shortstop and pitcher and one of our better bats!
