Anybody here now?

So far so good. Some great raffles to build and smash dreams. I’ll wander around the floor for the day before the big banquet tonight where I’ll get tired from running up to the stage to accept yet another fantastic hunt draw!

I believe there are at least two more bowsiters here that are laying low because they promised to buy me lunch and a beer. Probably putting the savings into more raffle tickets.

I’m on my way home tomorrow. I started my trip on December 30th and made it close the Mexican border where I hunted Coues deer. The original plan was for Javelina, but the tags were all gone, so with a deer tag in hand and help from a couple other bowsiters, I started my Coues hunting career. No beginner’s luck, but some close, intense encounters has guaranteed a return!

So anybody else wandering the Field of Dreams in Reno today?

Hope you pull a hammie running back and forth up to the stage accepting you raffle vouchers, Rod. Good luck! Be careful hanging around some of the shadier Bowsite characters out there, though.

Yukon Dall Sheep tag just went for $340,000 if that gives you an idea...

From: Ambush

Fortunately I was able to buy a sheep hunt for $80, so I didn’t have to bid!

"Yukon Dall Sheep tag just went for $340,000 if that gives you an idea..."

And guys in Colorado complain about a $60 elk tag. Wow.

Any sign of Kyle (NvaGvUp) at the show, boys?

It’s actually pretty cool that there are people with deep pockets and a deeper desire to help keep sheep populations sustainable, growing and expanding to new suitable areas.

So, from the guys like me that can only buy a few hundred dollars worth of raffle tickets, thanks to those that can and do go over and above!!

One of my favorite events of the year. The amount of money raised for wild sheep conservation was phenomenal. Always great to hang out with fellow Bowsiters for a few days.

I had a lot of fun this year even though I didn't win any Life Member raffles or any other raffles dang it! haha

I really missed not getting with Kyle or Tom (Foss) or Kim as she was my 'Boss' when WSF was in SLC (Salt Lake City) and I was her only local WSF volunteer!!

Although I did stay the first night in Incline Village @ an Airbnb I did indeed have many miles to travel on Thursday.

More to follow in the AM fella's-------> driving all night, I'm beat and playing catch-up here @ home

Good luck, Robb

PS~~Nevada is one Black Night SOB when driving east @ 0230.....haha

I shorten my drive by about 70 miles by taking the cutoff for hwy. 50 in Thelsey (sp) instead of driving to Reno and then taking 585/395 down to Carson City and catching hwy 50 there......up and over toward South Lake Tahoe City until the turn off for hwy 28 to Incline Village.

I met the Aibnb owner girl that evening and she has 6 Airbnb properties around Lake Tahoe.....real nice person and very humble.

The rates almost doubled on Friday and Saturday night so I was staying just one night as I had another Airbnb booked closer to Reno for the rest of my stay.

A real nice Brisk walk along the beach in the morning after the snow had quit falling and then it was time for the big climb up and over Mnt. Rose hwy 431 and off to the Sheep Show. I was in 4x4 wheel drive all the way up and over and down!

I did make a few purchases but these by far are my FAV purchase and for sure some great Sheep Show pricing.

I think it was on Jeff's (JTV) PF heel thread that the Good Feet Store was brought up so I spent some time at my local store and they decided I was having foot fatigue from my boots when in rough rocky country hunting or more so helping other tag holders out in Mnt. Goat and Sheep country.

It was strongly suggested that I get a more solid boot but I didn't want those that are like a Ski Boot!!

After spending time at each of the boot booths at the Sheep Show, I ended up with these......

Great time raising money and booking mountain hunts with the crew!

I am always amazed at the vast amount of money raised for conservation at the Sheep Show!

Another Sheep Show in the books...my body is almost recovered. So many great aspects to the show...catching up with outfits I've hunted with, lining out the next years' hunts, checking out (ok, purchasing) new gear.

But no doubt my favorite part is sharing a beverage (or, you know, a "few") with friends, old and new. Most of these friends (if they'll let me call them that) are friends because of bowsite. So bigpizzaman, cajunarcher, Zackman, JTreeman, kota-man, Matt, Mark Watkins, Nick Muche, and to the others whose bowsite handle I don't know like JP, Bill, and the rest of the Sheep Show All-Stars...I'm already looking forward to the 2021 Show!

When ya get inside early in the morning when they first open up you can get some personal attention at the F&G booths as hardly anyone is visiting with them.

I got some real good intel and looking over unit maps @ the Nv. Department booth. It's always nice to have more private time when not anyone is hanging around.

I quit drinking a few years back but if you guys need a Designated Driver!! haha

Good luck, Robb

I tried to find the "Table of Legendary Misfits" by wandering around the room on Saturday night, but since JTreeman had already met me, he was able to tell everyone when to duck as I passed by. I did manage to ambush Frank Noska and two BC boys got a pic with him!

It's funny when cruising around the convention floor filled with Guide Outfitters, and many from BC that I know or know of. They are friendly and quick to engage until the "..so where from from " question is answered with ".. from BC". Then you are a spy!

We bought a ton of tickets on Desert sheep hunts (fueled on free beer and shots) . But our laugh always came when someone would push the one Stone sheep hunt draw.

"Want a chance at a great hunt?"

"How much is a ticket?"

"Only a hundred bucks!!"

"Hmm, maybe I'll just buy the tag for eighty bucks and be guaranteed to hunt."

"You bastards are from BC aren't you?!"

From: Kurt
21-Jan-20
I notice the same thing Rod, most of the BC outfitters clam up pretty fast when they find out where you are from. Good talking with them anyway, and some are really decent despite our residency.

Should have had hats made, “Make Sheep Hunting Great Again”. Sheep benefit from a strong economy it sounds like. I have to stay away from the Reno show. I don’t go to Casinos but I LOVE raffles.

Thanks for the kind words Kurt. Still hasn't really sunk in the type of honor that we were given down there. Being a small part of what the WSSBC is doing is pretty cool and was great connecting with people about what we're doing and where we want to go with the Jurassic Classic one day.

One of my favourite scenes was at the <1 free beer and draws event. One winner comes running through the crowd, hooting and high five’ing, then somersaults onto the stage! A sheep hunter is born!! And likely a guy that would never have the opportunity otherwise. We bumped into him a couple times and he was still a bit in shock.

Cool photos and thanks for sharing,,, and not to ruff feathers so to speak, but am curious how they got the Bald Eagle/Bear mount... Thought it was a no no to possess eagle parts unless used for Native American ceremonies...

From: JTreeman
22-Jan-20
I kinda thought the same, but figured it was not my business. They obviously had the legalities covered or it wouldn’t be right out in the middle of a show.

Also kinda odd to walk into someones home in Canada with taxidermy bald eagles, hawks, owls, etc, but obviously that is a different country....
