Cool! Enjoyed all the pics! Interesting spot for sure. And, you’re going to try it with the recurve… awesome! Good luck buddy!

From: Nick Muche

Did you see any sheep?

From: BULELK1
02-Aug-23
Thanks! Tavis, exclusive for the first hunt week I'm going then, if nothing arrowed/harvested the next trip down, not so much.

Sure did Nick....but with me being 1 of 6 tag holders, not a pic will be posted, let them do their own scouting and find the Rams. Plus, I had Heatwave issues even as early as 0800 while Digi-Scoping.

Ya know I hardly ever post pix of the actual animal I'm doing my Photo/Scouting threads about on the internet, to the hunter, yes privately.

I'm out later this month in the Fishlake LE Bull unit for a fellow bowsiter that drew a Muzzy tag and also during that trip, into the Pahvant for another fella that drew the early Rifle Bull on the Filmore/Pahvant and I most prolly won't post to many elk pix of bug bulls publicly but privately.

They are basically across I-70 from eachother.

Good luck, Robb

From: Nick Muche
02-Aug-23
Well that's pretty neat! Hopefully it'll all come together with your old school bow that first week, lot's to be excited about! Fire up a Thermacell and lose the bug net, makes things a bit more enjoyable at least.

From: BULELK1
03-Aug-23
Thanks for the suggestion.

I do have my Thermacell in my pack as I use it while capping and boning the meat off to help keep the bugs and Wasp away.

Good luck, Robb

From: Treeline

Will the thermacell keep wasps away? Never used one before but will be cooking in a pop up later this month… Tons of wasps there.

From: BULELK1

Not so much on the Black Wasps and I hate them, my whole arm swells up if one of them sting me.

Quick turnaround week, off to hunt Any Bull elk here in my home state Thursday for a week.

From: Tilzbow

Ya know I’ve probably been on 20 sheep hunts including 10 or so for desert bighorns with some really experienced guides and hunters and we’ve never used the terminology Class II, III, etc. and if I’ve heard it I can’t recall….. However, the term shooter, not a shooter and banana ram have been commonly used along with, “Wow, that’s a huge one, shoot!!!” LOL!!!

BTW, those three on the right better qualify as shooters during the first 30 seconds of your hunt with zero hesitation!

Hey bud, can you shoot with a face mask on? Sitka has the light hoodie with a built in one and then there are lots of other choices. Sure does a lot to break up your face when you are in tight on them. you can always slide it down just when you need to shoot. Have fun, be safe and make some bowhunting memories. If anyone deserves a ram, you do. We will all be there in spirit when it happens. Your friend, Tom.

Thanks fella's, it is exciting!

Had a fun elk hunt, bailed a day early as I didn't want the mess of driving home in a blizzard! haha

I always seem to run into sheep in the OTC Any Bull unit up on the North Slope of the Uinta Mnts.

A band of ewe's and lambs with 1 young Ram.

Well, my hunt starts in the morning/28th. I'm staying home for the first 10 days though.

I'm hopefull the other 5 tag holders will tag out in that time frame that includes 2 weekends.

I'd hate to have any of those Long-Range Rifle hunters not seeing me putting a bow stalk on and end up shooting over my head!

I did get an opportunity to upgrade from being a Life Member with The Wild Sheep Foundation to Summit Life Member.

Along with some Swag, I feel good about helping Put More Sheep on the Mountain for future lucky tag holders.

Good luck, Robb

I’ve had a couple of sheep tags that I did not fill. Haunts me to this day that I thought work was more important…

As tough as sheep tags are to draw anymore, now I would plan to be out there for two weeks before the hunt and every single day of the hunt…

"sheep tags that I did not fill. Haunts me to this day that I thought work was more important"

Me too Treeline, I know exactly what you mean... I drew a CO ewe tag in 99 and only hunted about a week or so... Never filled the tag and it will probably be the only sheep tag I'll ever draw, wish I had a do-over...

Best of luck BULELK1...

Thanks for the input, always much appreciated.

I've got till December 24th, so I am not as wired up this early AM as I was yesterday!

Plus, I've been down on the Gen Deer tag I shared my 20 points with, dad, his wife and their daughter, on the Filmore/Pahvant unit. His wife slipped and broke her leg (tibia) last Sunday. Man, what a treat getting her off the mountain and to the hospital. She is recovering well though.

I've had a fun filled year so far, twice in Wyoming Cow elk, Any Bull here in my home state, the F/P deer hunt here and now my Ram hunt....

Talking with the Nv biologist for the Mormon Mnts/#271, right across the border, if the snow piles up some of that herd winters on the Utah side......in my unit.

A man has to have a plan, ya know.

I did get reached out to about 1 nice Ram harvested yesterday on the opener. Good for him.

Thanks again All,

Robb

Hey Thanks!!

The rut is earlier in late summer/early fall down on the Northern most end of the Mohave Desert.

I've already got everything loaded and all I have to do is fill my cooler, hook-up to my lil' hunt trailer and load my bow then hit the road!

Antsy for sure--------> Come on Monday morning 0430!

I've been learning/practicing about doing a Semi-Live hunt, I'm still 50/50 about it though. I've got enough to concentrate on being Solo Recurve hunting! haha

Yup, I didn't harvest.

No Regrets ~~ but those of you I text know what I mean when I say that I would like just 1 Mulligan---->

I certainly want to say Thank You to all of you and to those from, M&M, Bowsite, WSF and friends that kept me supported thru text and voice messages.

I kept the 1 VM as it was so dang funny.

I will play it for the GF once she wakes up/ gets up this morning.

Thank You.

Sure, my 'Hunt' would have been over the very first morning with the 7mag. about a 38 yard rifle shot! But not 25 yards or closer for the Old School Recurve bow.

No regrets for sure.
