I know there are a lot of sheep hunters out there prepping for trips, good luck to all of you! By the time this is posted Curtis should be almost home from sheep country, although he wasn't hunting this time. He did a three week stint skinning at Redstone Trophy Hunts in the NWT.
We were able to talk frequently via Sat phone, which normally would be a good thing, but this time almost every call he had another grizzly bear story. The grizzlies were coming right into the main camp and the guides took to packing their rifles everywhere they went. I'm glad no one got hurt - it was very nerve wracking knowing how bad the bears were. I'm also glad it wasn't like that when I was up there last year.
Unfortunately my sheep from last year hasn't been mounted yet, but here a couple of beautiful Dall's taken from Redstone last season that we sent home a couple weeks ago.
