Sheep hunting advice
« on: October 30, 2018, 09:34:15 AM »
Hello, So I have been hunting a area for sheep for the past 5 years. I always find rams when I am in there and a lot of ewes. But there is never any legal rams? I am starting to wonder if I should focus else where or keep hunting this area? If any one knows a different area to start looking please message me. Any advice on sheep hunting or advice on my situation would be appreciated

With all due respect to the boys on this great site, I'm might be the youngest, and the guy in the mirror every morning tells me I am by far the best looking. But I think none of us have climbed a mountain in a few years. Those that have won't remember anyway. So I'm not sure how much help you might get here on sheep. Well now that I have had my fun and before the gang starts calling for my head..., hope you have great luck with your quest and please send pictures of your hunt. ps. beers on me boys  ;) :) :D.

The secret for us geezers is to walk small methodical steps when heading up slopes. Slow small steps. Same method used in high altitude mountaineering where oxygen is low.

Old man Gadd out of Jasper climbed Mt. Robson with his son when was 56.

My friends hot shot brother got stuck on the side on the side of Robson when he was 20 and needed a helicopter to medivac him off the mountain.

Hey speak for yourself lever lol..

All in good fun I know, but you are right that I know if none of the regulars are really sheep hunters on here. More flatlanders and muskeg trompers lol.

Northeast portion of Lesser Slave Lake in Marten mountain area. Flatland, muskeg and hills. Confession: I do prefer walking these areas when everything is frozen with a cover of snow. I think those slobber-noses also like that too. No noise....so quiet. :)
