Here is the picture of the tendoy mountains.

So that's where the herd has pnuemonia?  On the map it seems to be a good distance to the nearest 300, but I am new to sheep and maybe they have a bug range.


that is unit 315 tendoy mountains south of Dillon if I remember right. THat elimination hunt has nothing to do with the other 300 unlimited hunts

OK Idaho Guy, I may be off track, but I want to confirm, so please set me straight if I am off base.  I have the Tendoy in unit 300 west of Lima & South of Big Sheep Creek.

315 is East of 89

I think this is my two years from now plan if it's still offered then. Don't think I'll be able to scout but for a few days before the opener but just to actually sheep hunt!!!

The unlimited sheep units are an interesting creature.  Some of them are a scout early, sit on your ram until opening day type venture.  The Spanish Peaks was like this, although that unit has since closed because of disease outbreaks.

The units north of the park, in particular the upper Stillwater and Slough Creek is a different type of hunt.  Here, your challenge is simply finding the sheep.  It's vast and rugged country and the rams don't necessarily lay around above timberline.  They will and do drop down into the timber.  Your pack out in this area may be 20 miles.  There are lots of grizzlies.  It may snow a foot or two during your hunt.  It is not for the faint of heart, but would be an experience you won't forget.

gotcha, now  I am on the same page.  The separate units really confuse things  The moose units appear to be mostly the same as deer, elk, antelope.

Thank you for setting me straight.
