Well my trip started in Whitehorse Yukon where we flew 2 1/2 hours North to our Goz Lake base camp. We then loaded up our horses and rode for 2 days to our spike camp. Saw several Caribou and a sow grizzly and cub on the way.
We rode up on a young male Grizzly on out 1st day of hunting! Luckily we ran the other way. We hunted several drainages for a couple days only spotting a few small rams and ewes but LOTS of Caribou bulls. On day 3 of the 10 day hunt we found a SHOOTER bull caribou only a mile from spike camp. After a short climb/stalk I dropped him at 100 yards with my Browning A Bolt 30-06. Day 4 found us in a HUGE drainage 12 miles from spike camp. We saw 7 rams that day...all small...several were 3/4 curl 6-7 year olds and one full curl but my guide said he was young and small. We were walking the horses down a step drainage around 8:30pm when we spotted this ram climbing the mountain above us. We ran about 200 yards up the mountain to a large rock to get a better look. Shoot my guide said...330 yards up hill. The 165gr. Nosler Partition did the job. After many pictures and butchering we made it back to camp at 2:45am the next day. We were lucky to tag out because the next 2 days we were weathered in with wind,rain and LOTS of fog. We saw a dozen or more sheep and Caribou bulls on our 2 day ride back to base camp. It was a "TRIP OF A LIFETIME.' The Yukon is the most AWESOME sight I have ever seen. HUGE breath taking mountains and AWESOME hunting! I can't wait to return. They say you NEVER really leave the Yukon....now I know why. Anyone looking for a first class Dall sheep hunt check out Chris's opertation at http://WWW.WIDRIG.YK.CA. You won't be disappointed!
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
