Thanks everyone for all the positive words!

Next up: Eastern Alberta deer hunt with my kids. Itís gonna be one for the books. Iím loaded up with mule doe draw, supp. whitetail, and a general whitetail.

The boys (5 and 6) REALLY want to experience a successful hunt. Last year they were with me on a great open country stalk for a mulie. Hoping for some more fun action this November.

Congratulations on a fine moose. Great pics. Nice way to hunt and see beautiful country. Thank you very much for sharing the play by play & day by day accounting. This is a five star picture show and narrative worthy of popcorn and a re-read.

You write well. You should consider starting a yearly compilation of stories and pics of your outdoor experiences. In 5 or 10 years put the compilations between two hard covers and publish them.

That's awesome right there!

A hunt like that would be tied for the #1 spot on my bucket list.

What an excellent post! Thanks for sharing your story and pictures with us, I found it very entertaining and made me once again long to try a trip like this. Congrats on a great hunt and a great bull! AO needs more posts like this.

Stories like these are the reason I joined this forum. Thank you so much for bringing us along and sharing the photos. I'm looking forward to seeing the future documentation of the ram hunt.

Default Bump This One Back Up

Back to the top for a great story and guy. It is awesome to have people who are willing to share stories and info here.
I have been able to see and document his ram hunt. Unfortunately that video likely won't be hitting the forum for reasons all sheep hunters know.
Great hunt buddy and way to stick it out to the last day. No Softies.

Thanks LJ. I have been lucky enough to be a part of four successful ram hunts. It took me 6 years of trying but I got my ram in 2019. Also got a ewe in 2017.

Since everyone loves pics, here are a couple. I did post about my ram hunt on this forum, but Iíll have to look up the linkÖ
