Good evening, I'm new here! I was told by a friend of mine that there are some younger folks on here that do euro mounts. If anyone has their info I would much appreciate it. Since I probably won't get this opportunity again, I figured it would be best to have someone mount it that knows what they're doing. This sheep was road killed south of gila bend and I got the salvage tag. First time posting in a forum so forgive me. Thanks in advance!
I put in for over 38 years and had max bonus points for the 2018 sheep draw and got tag #2 in Unit 28 (south). My son-in-law, Dan Ott, and 26+ year hunting partner, Ed Soyring, accompanied me and the guides, Tyson Hatch and Matt Holcomb of Double H Outfitters. We decided to wait till Monday, Dec 3rd to start hunting to avoid some foul weather and any conflicts with the other hunter in the unit who had been waiting for 51 years for tag #1. Congrats to Craig (and Matt) on his terrific sheep, which scored 189". We saw lots of sheep on the first day and tried a stalk but two big rams got into it and ran off before we were in position. The second day was more discouraging with fewer sheep sighted and the big one from the day before just walking off out of the area. Third day was the charm. High winds kept a herd of 7 rams and 1 ewe pinned down below some cliffs. Three different stalks finally culminated in a 176 yard shot on a very nice ram. Pack-out was easy. He green scored by G&F at 172-1/8” and 6 -7 years old. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ; and, also, to Chris, Matt, Tyson, Ed and Dan.
Come along with Bob Downing, Mark Bool and High Point Outfitters owner Kevin Call as Bob harvests his once in a lifetime B&C Desert Bighorn Sheep. Bob was lucky enough to get an Arizona sheep tag in 2014 and makes the most of his opportunity. The Arizona sheep and deer applications are due in to the AG&F June 9th. Don’t miss the deadline. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKTuFY6wsCQ
Heat posted a topic in The CampfireATTENTION SHEEP HUNTERS, GLASSERS, ETC! Tom (Lv2hnt) is having a tough time on his hunt in the Gilas. We've seen a number of good rams on this hunt, but we haven't been able to get to them to kill one. We need help finding a ram in a shootable position. Time is running out for Tom and his "help" has gone home for the most part. We need your help! If anyone ever wanted to get in on a sheep hunt, here is your chance! Contact me here by PM and I can put you in touch with Tom or let you know where to go. I am positive Tom would be extremely delighted and grateful for any assistance he can get this last week or so. God Bless, Nick
