 I actually liked the fact that he expressed his excitement of being able to drive his own truck with as much as gear as he wanted to the hunt because it was in his home state.  I also think it was great that he was willing to spend so much money to be able to hunt sheep in his home state.  For me being able to do it in my home state would be worth a little extra cost.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

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

dumb question:If he is not tribal and he is hunting with a tribal tag does that mean he purchased said tag from the tribal member that got it?

He purchased the tag through the auction system. Same thing as the elk or deer auction tags we have..

 Pretty sure it was north of $130k as well. ;)

Which he could of spent in someone else’s yard but he choose his own yard “backyard”.

 Yeah I'm in agreement with Jack, relative to other sheep areas, this really is his backyard, as well as the rest of us that live in the PacNW.

 Congrats to him and his guides, fantastic ram! :tup:



So some of my neighbors in the Seattle area have trees that are so tall I can’t see the ocean from my backyard, could you folks trim them down a bit ?  Lol














It’s a joke, settle down.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. 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

Foray!  I love it.

I think it's awesome that he put that money forward, had a bit of fun and helped wild sheep.

Good for him. :tup:

I seen a pic of 1 of the tribal permit rams that was taken with a bow and spoke with a person that has good knowledge of rams that both tribal rams are similar in size and will score mid 170's.

Heard the stories from 1st handers and they put the time and effort in so cograts to both.

With a bow!  :yike:

Heck yeah, that's the way I would love to do it.  I would have a buddy packing a rifle or a muzzy as backup for me to use if needed.

Congrats to those tribal hunters.  I would be more than happy with a 170" sheep.  That would be the biggest sheep on my wall by a long shot.


FYI there are no sheep on my wall.

Funny how the guy called it a “Once in a lifetime” tag. If your gonna buy the governors tag it can be an annual tag. Just sayin.

I liked the video, like the guides, like the hunter, very nice people, and have nothing but congratulations to J.Alain, Glen, Brian, Garret, all the crew for a very nice Ram! Good job, and thanks for the dollars to help us put more sheep on the Mountain!

I thought he put together a great video regardless of all the normal huntwa drama. Much better than the majority of hunting shows these days. :tup:

Great hunt.  Glad he had such an adventure.

I don't understand your comment, though.    i don't know the guy.   Maybe it is like loose change to him.   Maybe not.

My wife and I have been saving for our "Trip of a Lifetime".   We hope to go in 2020.   that doesn't mean we can go every year.    Just sayin'.
