2014 has me with high hopes as a long waited Carmen Island Hunt was coming true. I made a deal with Sergio and brought my family! I also severely under-estimated this hunt, more physical than expected.

Half way through the hunt I shoot a great Ram, he tumbles down the hillside and I knock another Arrow but Gaspar (legendary Carmen guide) tells me it’s not necessary as my Ram is done! Only, seconds later the Ram gets up and runs off! The amount of blood he’s leaving has us not concerned that he’s not going far, 3 mikes later, we lose his track and never recover him! I’m sick!

November 15th, (my wife’s birthday) I’m sitting in my kitchen reading Bowsite and I get a message from Sergio, he has a cancellation!! I believe it’s his only cancellation EVER! I leave that night, best wife ever! I’ve got 5 days to get it done! Carmen here I come, solo!

It’s much cooler this time, I’ve been running everyday and know the drill so it’s on! First 3- days are windy, very windy. So much in fact the sheep have gone underground! We push the pace and hunt long and hard, unfortunately coming down after dark on the third night I slip and fall, take a tumble and crack a couple ribs. Day 4 I can’t gey out of bed for an hour much less pull an 80# bow.

Back to Fraiser River Valley in Sept of 2015. This was the last year of allocations so I was going to shoot the first mature/legal Ram that gave me an opportunity. Upon arrival I met the other hunter in camp and helped him spot/take/pack out a nice Ram. I was up next!

Next day I move in on 7 Rams, they walk by single file I shoot the biggest! He runs out on a rock out-cropping, I give him time to expire. He does but falls into the Fraiser! Never to be seen again!

Day 5 we catch 5 Rams below us, one is a beauty, with angle comp the distance is 60 yards, as the big Ram clears I release, arrow finds it’s mark, just left of spine in the chest. Takes us an hour or so to get off the rim and down to my Ram. We find a generous blood trail but never the Ram.

From: Bigpizzaman

One species left and I’m pulling out all stops! Lee Duet (cajunarcher) is lucky and has agreed to come along and share that Luck. We drive to Clayton NM, overnight and meet Outfitter in Trinidad the next morning for tags and licenses.

We get to the ranch unload our gear and sign releases. Before I have time to put boots on we head out “scouting”!

From: Bigpizzaman
05-Dec-17
Up on the canyon rim it doesn’t take long to spot a band of sheep bedded near water, about 30 in all with 5 mature Rams. Out comes the scope and we see One is a Cranker, bigger than anything I saw last year. We decide to make a move!

From: kota-man
05-Dec-17
You deserve a "quick" one! :)

From: Bigpizzaman
05-Dec-17
Takes us about an hour to get into position, leaving only an hour of light left. We can’t spot the Cranker at first, but as the Sheep begin to rise off their beds we see him. Laying in the middle of the herd in all his glory! I’m only 36 yards from him, waiting for him to stand!

From: Bigpizzaman
05-Dec-17
When he stands of coarseca “banana-horn” gets in front of him and when he clears there’s another mature Ram behind him. I wait! Finally he’s clear and as I draw he begins to walk and quarter slightly away, I pick the spot and release. Arrow hits right where it should but I’m surprised at the lack of penetration. Still I’m confident of the shot!

From: Bigpizzaman
05-Dec-17
The Sheep run uphill but two Rams come down out of the bunch, One is mine, I really thought he’d be down by now. Were are all in a little shock, no One wants to think that it may not be a fatal wound but man that Ram was moving out. After not finding much blood, losing light fast and knowing the arrow was in the chest cavity, we decide to get on him right away!

Slowly moving forward, easing around cedars we creep. We bump him about 200 yards in the cedars, he’s gone 1/2 mile in all. He’s sick and dying but I put another or two arrows in him prior to him falling into a creek bottom!!! Yes I have my Ram(s)!

William Faulkner stated December 10, 1950 when he was accepting the Nobel Prize for Literature in Stockholm, Sweden, "I believe that man will not merely endure, he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he is alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance."

I believe that 67 years ago, William Faulkner had the future Tim Metcalf on his mind. William Faulkner's words perfectly describe you and your sheep hunting adventures.

You not only endured, but you prevailed. Congrats on a great ram, but also a Great Sheep Slam. Bravo !!!!

We could have used your pizza making skills the other night at our 6 man get together. Had to buy pre-made ones from King Sooper, but the bottle of Crown Royal helped in the digestion. Ram meat Pizza? Add some pineapple topping, extra cheese, Might be interesting. my best, Paul

One heck of a roller coaster ride!! Good things come to those that just suck it up, buck up, and get back to the job at hand. All successful hunters know that the mental challenge is just as great as the physical challenge and they often hit at different times. Sheep will trigger both at once! Congratulations on a great accomplishment!! Living (hunting) large, one slice at a time.
