Default Live Hunt - Alaska Dall Sheep & Grizzly Combo

I took a lot of flack for selling the NM Governorís Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep tag that I won in a raffle, but, true to my word, I pocketed some dough and turned around and bought a cancellation hunt...combo Dall sheep and grizzly in the Brooks Range of Alaska.

With only 5 weeks to get in sheep shape, I did what I could and feel confident I wonít die in the mountains. I alternated between running and carrying a 50lb pack with an oxygen deprivation mask for a few weeks, then just started doing the pack/mask everyday until last week when I pulled a calf muscle. That combined with the hurricane scare in Houston this week meant I didnít do a whole lot of exercising this last week unfortunately.

And, I had the get COVID tested within 72 hours of my departure, but I got my negative results yesterday so Iím good to go.

Grabbed a couple bonus tags just in case, wolf and wolverine. Ready to let the new 7mag eat.

Sitting at the airport now, sipping tequila, waiting on my 525 flight to Seattle, then on to Fairbanks. Should arrive around midnight.

Iíll be in Fairbanks until Monday morning when I take the bush plane north. Iíll lose reception then, but do have a satellite hotspot so Iíll try to get some pictures out and maybe one of my buddies will post them.







Trying out Tapatalk for the first time, hope it works.

Wow... that's one heck of a tag to resell! I'm not going to give you flack though, cause this is a great replacement option!

Sounds like a good plan.

You should drop the booze until you return. Everything you can do to prep and keep your body clean will payoff of the mountain.

Best of luck, can't wait for the recap.

Good luck sir ,enjoy the ride!! I learned from my outfitter yesterday that last winter kill rates are pretty high this year. I hunted 19c two weeks ago and they just adjusted the rate of Dall sheep loss upwards.
