    Dream hunt. I drew a California Bighorn tag in Idaho on the Owyhee River some years ago and also decided hire a guide. Looks like money well spent. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the kind words. And now here's the rest of the story...

    On a training hike on September 10th with heavy packs, my wife rolled her ankle in a rut in the trail. Weeks of icing and rest didn't help it heal but she refused to see a doctor since she didn't want a diagnosis prior to her hunt anyway.

    Without going into too much detail, it turns out she has a broken bone in her ankle and torn ligaments that will result in surgery scheduled for next Tuesday. She's one tough chick to do a backpack sheep hunt with a busted ankle.

    Great job by the hunter and each of you that helped her during the adventure. Nice looking ram! Fantastic pictures of the scenery, too.

    That is quite an adventure. Congrats!

    That terrain looks like Mars. Or at least what the movies portray Mars to look like.

    I apply in a few states for desert sheep, and often wonder if I'd go DIY or hire an outfitter if I was so lucky to draw.

    Amazing ram, amazing country, and great story. Also nice to see a desert ram pic with only 1 or 2 people instead of 8 or so!! I was starting to think all desert rams required 8 people per tag for success!!

    Haha, I've always got a kick out of the "DIY... with 8 guys" stuff too. Though I definitely don't blame people for covering their bases with something like a sheep tag. Heck, I hired a guide and it was the best move we made.

    She got her stitches out a few weeks ago and gets the cast off before Christmas. Then a walking boot and physical therapy through spring.

    I still can't believe she did a backpack sheep hunt with a busted up ankle. Super impressive.
