Daughters Dall sheep
« on: November 13, 2017, 02:59:23 PM »
It was a pretty good big game year. My daughter shot this ram at 344 yards and dropped him on the spot. Sheep hunts are tough, she did great.

We eyeballed this guy the day before she tagged out. He wasn’t quite there, but will be next year....

Nice sheep.

Is Dall sheep OTC for non residents but you need a guide?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

@Rainier10  we might need to become sheep hunters next. You know, since we're goat guys now.


I don't know much about the white sheep, but that looks like a really nice one. Congrats to your daughter and to you for bringing her up right. Thanks for sharing.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Thanks, worth the read. Having daughters I try to instill my love of the great out of doors in them. Reading your story you have done that and more. Hope she gets the school she wants.
