    Looks like some weather is coming in this week for the opener, it never fails no matter how dry it is a guy can count on some weather September 15th especially when you got a sheep tag in your pocket. Definitely not complaining because this state needs it more then ever and I'm welcoming it with open arms. Good luck to all this week and the upcoming season stay safe out there!

    I was sleeping on a pad on top of my sleeping bag with no tent just the other day.
    Oh I love going from summer to winter in the same damn day 3 years in a row. Stay safe and good luck!

    Kook City forecast convinced me to change my strategy. Looking at going over there maybe on Friday if unit is still open.

    Look at the bright side, it will make them easier to spot with that white background.

    Fun opener! My brother was in 501 and got blown off the plateau, cold and wet he came back in.
    I was over in 500 chasing deer and this is what my camp looked like after the storm.

    Seems like you wouldn't have much concern about meat spoilage.

    Tough times for tough men, good luck guys!

    You fellows might want to start looking for their winter range. Looks like they may get another foot of snow in the unlimiteds. Seriously, how much snow will it take to make the sheep start moving down?

    I love playing in the snow as long as it's not below 0 and windy.

    I had a friend of a friend shoot one three years ago. Stopped by to check out his ram before heading back to ND. Those things are even more impressive when you get your hands on them.
    I think most units are two, but Iím not positive. Itís not uncommon for them to go unfilled. However, itís a very real possibility that your unit might close several days into the season.

    I feel that its anyone's game, the only advantage I have over a non-res which is a pretty big one is that I can be hunting sheep in 3 hours from my house. That's in the zone, up the trail. To me though that doesn't mean much, so far I have over 20 days in the unlimited area and all of my time has been spent in one district and I am still yet to turn up a legal ram a couple close ones but not ones I want to harvest. So, to answer your question it can happen to anyone at any moment, res or non-res. I have found sheep anywhere from one mile in to fifteen miles in, a guy once told me this about it, "there everywhere and nowhere." It is a unique opportunity to hunt sheep and you get to see some awesome country but anyone thinking that their gonna buy a tag and notch it on day one with only scouting on google earth and reading forums HA! They got another thing coming when the tooths get a hold of them. (Not saying that's you but, I have heard guys talk like that.) I'll also say this, those lonely days in there sure makes a guy miss chasing bugling bulls! I love the challenge though and when it all comes together it'll be very bitter sweet. Can't wait to get back in there!

    Ha,at my age I expect them to kick my butt.I was mainly asking to see if I can even make it back to where sheep may be.I would love to give it a try.Do they have to be full curl to be legal??What's hunting pressure like??

    No.

    Many.

    Low and NO.

    99.9% of the guys that want to do this have no idea how difficult it is. Those that do-do it successfully on their own-are in the smallest North American hunting fraternity there is...and the most impressive. I especially get a kick out of the ones that just plan to run out and take a nice ram with their bow!

    Good luck.
