July 28th, 2010
Things sure have been busy the last couple months and here I am thinking it would be a great idea to get an entry in before departing on what should be a great adventure for Stone’s Sheep in what is known as the Muskwa-Kechika Wilderness Area.
August sheep hunting to me is the gateway to the entire hunting season unfolding from September through November. That also means you will also be able to log onto the BC Outdoors blog and follow my continuous updates and adventures throughout the fall.
My hunting partner, Brent Tingstad and I depart tomorrow for the long drive north to Muncho Lake where we will depart for our destination via float plane.
My gear is packed and ready! Some of you may have read the latest issue of BC Outdoors Magazine, ”Gearing for Sheep”. Nothing in that list has changed for this years hunt except one thing. That is the changing of my breakfast routine of oatmeal. I like oatmeal on my sheep hunts and its a pretty standard fare for most others I know who also hunt sheep. Some energy bars on the market today now weigh less than 2 packs of Oatmeal with way more nutritious content which is invaluable on a sheep hunt. We’ll see how I like it with this years breakfast change up!
We have planned our gear / food for 14 days. Two whole weeks living in the mountains!! This is where all the training and all the preparation (equipment, physical and mental) finally comes together. I’m sure interested to know what kind of mountain weather will be thrown our way this year whether its being stuck in a tent for a few days or laying awake all night on a mountain ridge in a severe wind storm.
For all you readers, check back in a couple weeks and I will have the story and photo’s of our sheep trip (whether successful or not) on line.
