My friend and I drew sheep tags in Unit 27-1. I have horses and mules. I have heard a mix of suggestions to access this unit, horses, fly in, hike in, and float. Any suggestions or ideas to make this a successful hunt. We are going to hunt 3 weeks and need any help you all are willing to share about this unit. I plan to buy a book written on the unit and I know several folks who have drawn and killed. I want to put together a very comprehensive view of were sheep have been taken so we can narrow the search. Please write and let me know what you know about this unit.
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
