Sheep hunting boots.

Sorry the pic is not better. I took that at about 400 yds. I was able to close the gap
to 219(lazered) before deciding to bump em on their way. I had Dan M. at After Image studio take a look at the photo to see if he could clean it up a bit but no luck. I'm planning on hunting mule deer in this area next year the last week in Oct. Maybe I'll be able to get a picture of this guy again. Preferably with me standing over his warm dead body....
This next photo is as close as I got to a shooter big horn. Found this at about 4800 feet in a heavy burn. I think this was a wolf kill by the looks of the remains. The horn was to badly burned to handle, it just crumbled as I tried to pick it up. Cool find huh.

Sheep hunting boots.

Its the Salomon river corridor about three hours south east out of Lewiston, which is the the north entrance point of Hells Canyon...
The 100,000 acre Rattlesnake Complex fire Burned most of the Game Unit in August and September so it looks a little bit like H C in photos. Heres a couple more photos for perspective.

Sheep hunting boots.

Hey Tim,
California Bighorns are considered the same as Rockies for the purposes of the three year rule (see rule book, page 10, FAQ's Item 4). However, I will put in for the Moose in 6a next year and I'm considering a pronghorn hunt. I bumped a 60" or better bull during rifle elk this year that I would love to get another look at. I"m also going to buy a block of tickets for the FNAWS drawing. GMU 11 is available to sheep hunt in even numbered years. Thats close to home ya know.....
I'm in Moscow, where you at?
