Sheep Hunting

Serious Hunter,
This is rogie from one block over on E street. I would be interested in this hunt if you are thinking about it and need a second. I'll be happy to drive and I can carry better then half my weight on the way out. PM me if you would like to look into it more.

mr klean

if you never apply you will never get chosen. Yes it takes some money to put in in the different states, but if you don't draw, you get most back.

sheep hunting is very addicting painful work. But it puts a smile on my face.

Sheep Hunting

I drew my Desert Bighorn Sheep tag on my first try (2007). My friend had 8 points for Desert Bighorn and decided to try for Rocky, and drew a Rocky Mountain sheep tag on his first try for that species (2008). Now this is very unusual to draw with out a lot of points. but it goes to show that it can happen.

As tim said, If you don't apply, you can't get drawn.

Advice

I have a unlimnted permit for district 502 southwest of Red Lodge, MT.
My father and I have located an area we would like to try. We will take hwy 212 south out of red lodge to Hellroaring road, this will bring us to the plateau where we will hike to Sliderock Lake (~4 miles) where we will establish camp for the next 10 days.

I need advice from anyone who reads this. I'm from out of state and trying to organize this hunt on very short notice. The good thing is that I have high altitude experience (Denali) and have been in the AB wilderness before, climbed Granite Peak.

Anyone who reads this, please contribute.

BTW: this shit does happen so apply, I had a 1% chance of drawing this permit 1st try and it happened!!

THANKS

I have been into the Aero Lakes area (near Granite Peak). Quite vividly I remember EVERY kind of weather, in July, and sometimes all on the same day. We were forced mid-day into our tents in the middle of summer from the cold one afternoon. SO, all I can say, if I was going in there late Sep / Oct, I would be real conscious of weather issues.

Yea, I had some friends that were snowed out on Froze to Death Plateau in August while attempting Granite. It really does kind of scare me, but I have been on Denali and have experienced it's worst weather so as long as I have the heart to outlast the weather I know I can get it done. Just need some info on where to go....

I have no idea where the sheep are in that area. We were trout hunting (both trips). If MT is like ID, the rams will NOT be all that high.
