Listen To The Experts

Archery Dall Sheep hunting is a daunting undertaking.

As I consider all the necessities and possibilities of this hunt, it seems huge. Having had zero experience with such a hunt for such creatures in such a place, research is the key.

I am evaluating assorted “suggested gear lists”, reading as much on the subject matter as I can reasonably digest, watching videos of others on mountain hunts and most importantly seeking the advice of those who have been there themselves.

For example, I recently reached out to Dustin Roe of Backcountry BC and Beyond whom I was fortunate to meet at the Dallas Safari Club convention in January. At that moment, I had no idea I would be sheep hunting this year but Dustin was probably to blame for turning my mind in that direction and even though he is personally booked several seasons in advance, he was also tremendously gracious and kind when sharing information and answering my questions. Dustin’s passion for the hunt is both contagious and extremely motivating. The link to Dustin’s website is listed below for your reference. He is a great guy and and exceptional sheep hunter.

One other example of the shared passion of the sheep hunting brotherhood comes from a Facebook “friend” that I have admired but have never actually met. A few nights ago, I was searching through Vimeo for Dall Sheep hunting videos and I came across a short film from Sitka Films called “Connected” chronicling an archery Alaskan Dall Sheep hunt with Adam Foss. If you haven’t seen it, it’s well worth your time. Here is the link to see for yourself:

After watching Adam work hard to arrow a fantastic Alaskan ram, I reached out to him to seek advice on his arrow & broadhead setup and he responded promptly with not only the “what” to answer my question but the “why” as well, providing me with the reasoning behind his choices. Once again, a very experienced and knowledgeable sheep hunting brotherhood member more than willing to help a wannabe member. I am beginning to see a trend here and it makes me feel very good about it.
