Default Desert Bighorn Sheep-Docís shot at Carmen Island!!!!

Some of you guys may remember when I booked this trip. I truly believe it was 7 years ago at SCI Vegas. I drank way too much whiskey and put a deposit on a sheep hunt I never thought I could afford. Well, after pushing it back a year and then another due to Covid it finally happened!!!!! If you follow on Instagram then you know the story. If not, Iíll try to post a summary when I can.

I really wanted to enjoy a trip with my wife and enjoy the hunt. It has been everything I could have ever dreamed of!!!! Sometimes I get a bit put off by commentary I see on TBH. I truly love God, my family, my profession and then the outdoors. I could care less about any recognition and none of my animals are in any record books because of me. Just wanted to throw that out there.



And, the hunt was a huge success!!!!!!!!

I don't have Instagram, and completely understand your stance. With that said, some of us would love to hear the story.
