For an extra $650 it is worth having, it is a trophy fee if I shoot one and no additional money if I donít.  If I do, it will be a bonus and about 1/2 or less the cost of a good guided trip for just that species these days.  Know I would run across a giant if I donít have it.  Sheep is the priority, probably wouldnít even shoot a record book Caribou if I didnít have a sheep yet.

Can't wait to follow along! I day dream daily of going back :'( There's a legal ram out there somewhere, just gotta keep stepping till you find him. Do you need a packer  :chuckle:

I do need a packer and my good buddy is tagging along for motivation, companionship and and to video.  Goal is for a slam and hope to bring him on all.  He isnít excited about going to Mexico though so could be an opening on that one.

Trip is booked for February of 2025, you wouldnít have to pay for anything, I will give him until this February to commit.  Youíre officially on deck if he opts out, that would give you a year to schedule it in.

We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

You would be dead alright if the Mrs spotted this.

I'd welcome it! It's almost impossible to get even an eye roll out of her anymore  :chuckle:

Change of plans, Karl is aware, I think the chance of a great ram has increased, but the suffering it is going to take to make it happen just quadrupled! 

Heading out Sunday, season opens Thursday, I welcome all the prayers and good luck possible!
