    Namibia July 2018 ( a return to Africa)

    I went to Nambia in July. I had a great time, shot some nice trophies and enjoyed the relief from our heat. Congrats on your great trip!!
  2. Has anyone heard if they were hunters? Isn't archery elk going on up there?

    2018, Desert sheep unit

    I never set the 180 as my goal, I want to hunt a unit that has that potential. Who wouldn't?

    2018, Desert sheep unit

    I still have 20 good years of hitting the hills left. I asked because maybe somebody knows something and disease, die-off etc. There are 4 different hunts in those 2 units as well. There are folks who know a lot more about sheep than I do. I have only been on a few sheep hunts myself. All were for nelsoni rams, however.

    2018, Desert sheep unit

    I don't care what everyone else is putting in for, just what I am putting in for. When I drew my antelope tag I applied for one choice and drew tag #1. I am open to 22 or 24B, not really thinking there are 180 class sheep in any other units right now.
  6. What is the story this year for the desert sheep. A lot of big ones were killed last year, any left? I have max points and want to apply for the best units but I have heard conflicting reports of Pneumonia, blue tongue and so forth. I am looking at 22 and 24b. Anyone know why they have a separate hunt just for the wilderness? Wouldn't 24BS cover all that too and more?

    Yesterday it said "drawn" and even gave me the tag number for rifle bull in 23. Today is is back to Pending. something is amiss.

    Rosy Waterdogs?

    I know a couple of tanks in 23 that have hundreds and hundreds of water dogs.

    Desert Bighorn Tag

    Congrats to you. I am still waiting for them to post results. I don't like checking the card and not knowing which hunt. Been 35 years for me so maybe I gotta wait a few more!

    Tundra versus bull elk (pics)

    Not a smart thing to do. Under the current title 17 laws, you would have just illegally taken an animal. Under the same BS rules, the G&F person would be 'obligated' to cite you! There is no exceptions in the statute for mercy killing. If you shoot one again, keep your mouth shut (or your keyboard). A few years ago a snowbird hit a 180" class bighorn by Stewart Mountain, he did not want the salvage tag. G&F auctioned it and it brought a pretty penny. IF you are going to take the animal, you need to wait for the investigator to ISSUE you a salvage tag- not just give you a number. Looks like that Tundra is possibly totaled; the bull is! As for airbags, they deploy based on inertia- if one goes, they both go.

    Ford 150 ecoboost 4X4

    I have driven a lot of them and they won't touch a properly running 7,3 with a load (I have one). They are peppy but don't get good mileage if you use them. I don't know anything that does- at least they get a lot better than the Tundras! I would love to have one but I have two trucks already!

    Anyone lose a GPS on Mt. Ord?

    I've had one person contact me but unfortunately it wasn't his.

    Belt Recommendations...

    I couldn't find a suitable belt so I had Rocky Minster of Gilbert make me one. It's he11 for stout. Hard to find a decent belt these days.
  14. Did anyone lose a GPS on Mt. Ord last year? I found one yesterday along with a couple of other things. Let me know roughly where and what model it is and it's yours. I was in a pretty remote area. I washed it up, put fresh batteries in it and it still works fine. Looks like it just fell off while someone was hiking.
