Title: Randy Newberg Dall Sheep
Post by: X-Force on September 08, 2018, 07:12:47 AM
Randy was worried about people not liking this hunt because itís not self guided but dang... Wrangles are no joke. Amazing country, 360 views, epic hunt. Definitely recommend watching it on YouTube.
The videos are dropping daily and they are on day 5 right now.

My only sheep hunt was guided back in the Alaska Range back in 07.  I have no shame being guided on that hunt.  Even if it wasnít a requirement to have a guide, I wouldnít have gone the self guided route on a remote hunt like that.  Best investment I ever spent.

I like Randy. Watched his shows for years and listen to his podcasts. Itís a shame he has to defend going on a guided hunt but thatís how todayís judgmental society works.

 :bash: doubt many people that are complaining can even hunt like him at 50%.

The thought of anyone judging Randy for his hunting choices is kind of laughable.

Great hunter and great guy.

Cool hunt for sure.

Are people actually criticizing him or is he worried that people might criticize him?

Aren't non-residents required to have a guide for the white sheep in AK anyway?

Non residents have to have a guide. Itís the law. Sheep, goats and brown bears all have to have. A guide.

In a podcast he talked about how his mission statement is unguided public land and how this trip would go against his mission. He rejected the trip then took the opportunity after a friend said he was crazy

Well I agree with his friend. It's the only way for a non-resident to hunt Dall Sheep in Alaska. Go with a guide...who cares!!

I like watching Randy. Good dude and he hunts hard. Always wondered what liver problem he has? Itís flared up on him on a few of his hunts.

Big fan of Randy's.  I can't imagine he got much/any actual criticism, but I think part of why we all like him so much is his commitment to his ethics.  I get it that it was a hard choice for him (at first).

Personally I agree he would have been crazy not to do it.  Also, that guide is going to be busy now...  I mean GEEZ can you imagine a better kick off to your guide business than to have Newberg and SoloHunter join you?

I just listened to Randy's podcast about this hunt... it was a really epic adventure. I'll have to check out the Youtube videos.

I'm bummed that I didn't do more sheep hunting when I lived in Alaska. It took a while to get into backpack hunting on "easy" caribou and learn my stuff before I felt confident going on a solo sheep hunt. I got to do it once, without killing a sheep, and a year later I'm one of those dang nonresidents who would need a guide. I wish there were more registered guides who offered something like a self-guided hunt (with them going along as partner/packer) for something like 1/3 the ridiculous price of full guided hunts. I guess there are just enough people willing to pay for the deluxe experience that there's no room for guides offering something like a DIY for less money. It's great that Randy got that opportunity, though, and he would have been crazy not to do it.
