Finishing the Dall sheep episode of MeatEater got me thinking back to my first Dall ram, which I killed in 2005. I hunted that year with my brothers, Matt and Danny. (Because Danny’s an Alaska resident, I’m able to hunt sheep with him without using a registered guide.) This was actually my second attempt to take a ram; the first was a misery-fest of unprecedented levels. This time, the weather was much hotter, and the hunting was much better. Here are some old photos from my archives that tell the story.
