I'm a lifelong hunter, everything from rabbits and squirrels to elk. I'll be putting in for big horn sheep and deer next month I already have a late season tag for antlerless elk this fall.
Kenya!? How awesome!Mainly big game meat hunter here. Also varmints when needed to reduce pops. started my hunting in Kenya East Africa as a toddler and went on many safaris... I was only allowed to hold the gun and keep the vultures off while my parents went for the vehicle! Ha! never got to actually hunt as we moved back stateside. Big fan of venison, elk and sheep meat. Have done some bird hunting. Not big on it.
Totally understand.Scouting for my sheep hunt has been my priority since the first of July. I’ve neglected every responsibility I have and it is not going to stop anytime soon. I have all of august to continue looking and trying to relocate what I have found so far. I am having a blast “hunting” without my rifle so far. Waiting impatiently for season to open. I’ve walked my ass off in some pretty nasty country. I’ve learned the value of trekking poles. I’m definitely thankful that I spent the money when I was young and single on world class optics. The first rams I spotted were over a mile away. As of this last trip I have three rams spotted that i will feel blessed if I have an opportunity to harvest one of them, including what I, and others, believe to be the biggest ram in my unit.

The top ram in this photo is the third largest ram I have seen. This picture was taken at over a mile. Right now I believe this is the best looking ram I have seen.

The ram in the middle of this photo is the biggest ram in my unit. There is one with him that will be the number 2 ram.
They are so much fun to watch. I’ve enjoyed looking at them all my life. The thought that I will be hunting them in a month is still unreal.
