S44 Colorado Sheep-any input appreciated
Hey guys on top of my Alaska Chugach Dall Sheep tag I drew Colorado archery bighorn tag S44. Any input and help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. RLTW
My buddy had that tag in 2015. I made a scouting trip there for him. I'll get him to contact you.
There was a thread on S44 a few years back from Don V? sounded like a tough hunt.
I looked into the harvest statistics for the Archery hunt and it was the lowest in the state! The last 5 years the success has been: 2 rams killed for 24 tags issued= 8.3% success rate... The good news is that a few bowhunters have been successful so you have a chance! But realistically would need to plan max time and preparation for it.
If anyone can fill this tag it's Justin...
2/6 NR sheep tags went to Alaskans. How cool.
Best of luck man, you'll get it done I'm sure!
Justin, Just replied to your PM. Tough unit, but it can be done.
Had the tag way back in 2003. DIY. Shot a P&Y ram on day 2. I'm sure things have changed but drop me an email. email@example.com
Take lots of pictures and come back here and post them for us <1'ers! Good luck on your hunt!
Had a good buddy who hunted it a few years ago. Never saw a legal ram the entire hunt.
I belive the raffle ram came from it last year thou but killed later in the year
If I Remeber right, this dunk came from there albeit, late, but he'll have fun in that red dirt.
I was with iceman on that scouting trip. Very tough unit mainly cause it's heavily timbered. Will be tough to locate sheep but if u do you will have plenty of cover. Good luck at least u have a sheep tag!
Replied to your PM--Justin.
I have a pic or two of harvested Rams
Good luck, Robb
