I used to stop up on top of the Brooks Range going to Prudoe Bay and watch sheep. There is something so wild and unforgiving about the country they're in that it calls you. I've never hunted them and at this point probally never will.
Up in the Yukon at Kluane (clu-wa-nee) is an observatory with scopes to watch the sheep up on sheep mountain. Beautiful!

I know it sounds crazy to most hunters calling a antelope but I just had it in my head that I was going in the middle of the rut and they have to have some kind of vocalization at this time of year. Mention antelope hunting and calling in the same breath, well the old timers thought I fell off the rocker and the bets were on!The knowledge about antelope hunting and...
