Time for my annual post. Have been doing this for the past several years and enjoy sharing photos of different places of Alaska with all the 'wallers who live down south. That being said, for those of you who are absolute die hard traditionalists, read no further. My hunting companion for years is a rifle hunter so there was guns along. But last year he got hold of an old Howatt bow and has been shooting a lot. Hoping next year I get him to commit to a spring bear or Aug. caribou hunt. My lifelong dream has been to arrow a sheep but the last few sheep hunts that I have had has slapped a little reality into me as the Alaska Range open shale slopes have proven tough to get 3-4 hundred yards from them. So I carry a rifle along with my bow. The bow I was hoping to use on caribou stalks and maybe a bear. It was a disappointment not to see even one caribou on this mtn. trip, nor a bear. The caribou are scarce on the north slope right now, no one knowing where they are. So if the moderator lets this go, let's get started and view some awesome country.....

The drive from my home in Anchorage to the fly out strip at Happy Valley on the north slope was nearly 800 miles. A few pictures on the drive up. As usual, Mt. Denali (McKinley) was cloud obscured.

The day we flew in was a warm sunny day. This would turn out to be the warmest Alaska hunt that I have ever been on. The first day the temp must have been 70. Nice weather to get camp set up.

Each time we do a fly out we refine our gear some and try to go lighter. This time we took it to the extreme and had the minimalist amount of gear and food.

We dropped the fly rod at the last minute to go light. Mistake, as we saw some nice 16-18" grayling in these small clear waters.

the first legal day to hunt we set out upriver. I was carrying my 2 piece Fox Breed recurve in hopes that caribou would be around. During long sessions of stationary glassing we would break it up with little bouts of shooting contests at clumps of tundra with some ash shafted zwicky's.

of the week we spent here we only saw two fresh piles of bear scat. one was upriver from camp a couple of miles and one was downriver from camp a couple miles. Each was very red. Saw 2 kinds of red berries on the mountain, surprised the bear chose these over all the blueberries.

After a day going upriver and another downriver we had not seen a sheep on our side. We had been viewing sheep across the river (another game unit but also open)and had seen a couple dozen rams. At 2-3 miles it was hard to say just how good they were but if that's where the sheep were we were going to have to get our feet wet. Wanting to keep our boots dry we went barefoot. The rocks hurt, next time pack reef slippers!

the lower 2/3 of the mtn is covered in tundra. some of it very spongy, your feet sink up to 6" with each step. very tiring, it does take the energy out of you. not to mention the steepness.

as a result, there were a lot of short breaks going up. this old man needed them just to let the heart rate come down some. always tried to take a break in a berry patch to replenish...

from our side the river we had watched 2 rams for 3 days stay in the same little valley high up. From a distance they had the best mass on their heads through the spotting scope. They were our goal. Just as we were almost high enough to peek into the boys bedroom I saw a wolverine loping side hill across the mtn and directly into where we wanted to go. it was a little while before we could see the results, the boys were not home but the wolverine did flush this band of ewes out of the rocks.

we walked the ridge and looked into the next valley. saw quite a few sheep but to far to make any determinations. on our side of the ridge and the valley below us we had seen quite a few rams but nothing full curl (legal). so it was down the steep grade and back to camp.

the next morning we still could not glass up a sheep in the valleys on our side of the river. as we had seen a lot of sheep on the other side it was decided to go back. as long as it was taking to get to the top we went with the idea of bivying out for the night, hunt the next day and then come down. as we had packed so light, this would be my food for the trip. (we wanted to go light so left the stove and Mt. House behind)

we had to go upriver to find where the river divided into about 6 braids in order to cross it. otherwise it would have been to deep and the current would have taken us off our feet. it was cold water and my feet would be numb by the time we crossed the last channel and dried off to put boots back on.

when we flew in there was another tent at the end of the runway, our air taxi said it had been there awhile. as we climbed the mtn we saw a couple of Cubs shuttling from upriver to our river runway. figured they were on their way out. in all the activity, a couple more had been dropped off. we were committed to going up and decided if they hunted up the valley we may have sheep pushed to us so we continued on. at 5000 ft. I found this little guy curled up in the sun.

Flatbow,

Brings back memories of my Dall hunt in the Chugachs a few years ago including looking over a ridge and seeing someone else's camp or at least a blue tarp covering their gear. It was towards the end of sheep season and although we had seen no other people up to this point my guide and I felt the other hunters might be returning to catch the last few days of season is the reason they may have stashed their supplies. Changed the complexity of the hunt though as the only legal ram we had found was hanging just over the ridge with two smaller buddies from where we saw the tarp.

Nothing quite like sheep and Mt goat hunting or being in the places they live during late summer early fall.

we spent the morning going along the rim and glassing from various places. saw quite a few rams, only one that we thought might be legal. by evening we still had not found him again, he was hanging out in some rough broken up stuff a few hundred yards below us. at one point when I crawled to the lip and peeked over this 1/2 curl ram was looking right at me. Busted.

From: Flatbow
Date: 26-Aug-12




about 6 pm we made our way over the rim and started down. slowly checking out all the little pockets in the terrain looking for the ram we thought might be legal. it was pretty much a straight down thing...

we had just about given up finding him and were heading for camp and had searched a couple of different ridges and surrounding terrain when we spotted him! he was over another ridge, right in the middle of this pic, in the grass right under the rocky outcrop. he was 300 yds. but a small bump between us made it possible to get closer.

we closed to 240 yds. and spent 10 min. looking until I decided he would make full curl. by the time I shot he had only fed off to 246 yds. he rolled all the way to the bottom and ended up on top of a little waterfall. no way to work him there, had to send him over and deal with him below.

From: Flatbow
Date: 27-Aug-12

by the time we got to him, took some photos and opened knives it was 10 pm. finished up about midnight and knew that with a heavy pack there was no way we would attempt the climb down in the dark. there was just a bit of a bench below the rock next to the waterfall that we built out the ledge with rocks and then ripped up big chunks of moss sod to fill in. made a comfy bed but would have been ugly to have rolled off during the night.

this was a great hunt as it was in spectacular country. it was a test as both of us were born in '53. we got it done, maybe a little slower but it tells us that maybe we got another sheep hunt left in us. or two. next up, an archery only moose hunt in mid-Sept. solo? will keep you posted. best of luck to all you who enter the woods.
