Barbary Sheep Scouting Trip 2

The day before Christmas we went up to the mountains looking for barbary Sheep. We walked alot and even did some rock climbing.

There were no sheep spotted but we did see some deer including a couple of nice bucks. I may try this area next year for deer.

Beautiful country but disappointing you haven't seen any yet. Hopefully things will change by the time season opens up. At least your getting some good deer scouting in as well.

Only two more weeks until I leave on my Texas aoudad trip. Getting excited for it now.

 Yes but a different area.

 Yes but a different area. Devils River or something like that.  Should be a lot more animals in the area from where we went last year. 

I'll report in when we get back on how it goes.

GMU 30 Barbary Sheep

I am curious if anyone knows if the Store/Cafe in Queen is still open?  I'll be out in GMU 30 on the Rim the weekend of Feb 15-18

Thanks!

Just answered my own question

Just answered my own question by getting a call returned from Queen.  The store/cafe is closed.  Shame, it was a nice oasis after a day in the cold, sun, and wind.

Just an FYI to hunters, hang gliders will be on the northern end of the Rim the 15-18.

I was going to reply earlier

I was going to reply earlier but the scouting trip took longer than I had planned. 

I was up in Queen in October during the deer season and the store was closed. Kind of sad, I was hoping to get one of them mountain burgers.
