2018 Sheep Hunts
Season began yesterday in the NWT. Good luck to everyone who drew my tags in the Lower 48. Post pics and if you have the time, create a thread on here for us to live vicariously through you.
Great idea to start this thread cowboy. Looking forward to hearing from any & all lucky sheep hunters!
25 days till the AK opener.
Good luck, guys!
Ike, I still wanna see you get serious and ventilate a big ol ram with your recurve!
Good luck to all! Little over two weeks till the BC opener. Helping my buddy this year. Good training trip for Mt Caribou which opens two weeks later.
I’ll be cheating and toting the Tikka for this years hunt, shaving hair off that ram in Colorado last year left a bad taste in my mouth and I need bang stick redemption to get back to square one with the sheep hunting gods :). Hiking in August 8th solo and not coming back until I kill or Aug 19 rolls around.
Good luck all! I had my fun last year in WY.
I’ll be in BC for Stone Sheep on the opener. Leave a week from Saturday! Like Tembry, it’s the bang stick for me. My second go for Stones.
Good luck Trevor! Hunt hard, stay safe. That's bad ass. Keep us posted.
Sheep hunting isn't any fun but the tag is free and someone's gotta do it so I guess I'll go...
Tavis, that may happen one day, but it won't be this year. I'm taking my compound. And I'll be thrilled and lucky to shoot a ram with it.
Rookie sheep hunter from Indiana (at age 56) driving to Colorado S35 in two weeks. Planning to spend a couple days acclimating in the high country prior to the August 4th opener. Will be hunting with Sangre de Cristo outfitters the first week of season. Have arranged (family and work schedule) to hunt the entire season if necessary. Tough unit to kill a ram with a bow, but it will be alot of fun trying!
Good luck sheep hunters!
No mountains for me this year. Maybe in 2019...
WY in Sept and La Palmosa in January for me. I better watch every step I take between now and then.
My buddy just shot his 12th archery sheep - 2 hours ago. A NM Rocky +180".
So proud of him. A huge accomplishment.
Your friend shot one hell of a nice ram! 12 archery rams as well!!! Very well done.
Helped my buddy out. He arrowed a full curl 10-yr old Stone ram on day 6. Took us 3 more days to pack it out. Great when a plan comes together!
Awesome, Kurt! Sounds like he got a great ram!
I did as I said, I cheated and took the rifle, and came home with a solo walk in ram. My first sheep to boot! Now that the monkey is off my back I can start forming a plan for a 2019 archery ram!
That's a stud ram from NM. I suspect they'll be quite a few hitting the ground soon. Can't wait for the pictures and stories.
Congrats Trevor, that's a beauty!
Congrats Tembry! Great ram...
Nice Trevor.... Congratulations. Ed F
Attaboy T! Grants again! Gonna be an August to remember. See you next week
Congrats Trev, your year is starting out with a bang!
Congrats again Trevor, awesome ram!!!
Awesome TEmbry! That's a beauty! Great picture too. Congrats, thanks for sharing.
Did it really die on the tiny bit of flat ground in your picture?
Good on you TEmbry!
Good luck, Robb
Congrats Tembry nice ram.
I leave Saturday and hope to add to the thread...
Great Ram Trevor, congrats!
Trevor, Tell me that you cooked some tenderloins or backstraps over a campfire the night that you killed your ram! Well done.....(the hunt, NOT the sheep meat)….
HUGE congrats Trevor!!!!
Come on, I know there have been some other sheep killed this year!
I don't care if its bow, rifle, stick or stone killed.....post em up!!!!
Congratulations, Trevor! I love the stories and photos from sheep hunts. One of the top hunts on my list. Someday... fingers crossed.
Rifle Stone from 8/8/18. Stone Sheep are no joke. They live in some AMAZING places. Taking a Stone with archery gear is one heck of an accomplishment.
Congrats kota! Looks like that ram has some good rings stacked in there....great coloured cape as well!
Congrats Kota and TEmbry!!
Yes, he has 10 visible rings and one or two broomed. We are calling him 11. Cape was a beautiful chocolate brown...Hunted with Stone Mountain Safaris...Great outfit.
Congrats gents on your sheep!!
