It's crowded in the brooks now because the state closed the chugach to all draw which pushed everybody from anchorage up there. That combined with most open harvest state land being crowded with guides is what I believe to be causing the crowding.
Why dont ya tell every other sheep hunter where theres rams too, thats why its crowded in the brooks now
I have always used the same Cabelas outfitter frame pack..it has been great. i am finally retiring it after 6 years and I just bought a much more expensive one made in Alaska, but the Cabelas outfitter pack worked great!
What brand of pack frame do you use to pack out those heavy loads? Nice pictures of a great state to be outdoors!
I moved up here when i was 16 with my family..my dad grew up in fairbanks and had always wanted to move back understandably!
Alaska seemed like an awesome place. did it say you got out there going to college?
Yeah man...definitely plenty of fakes out there! Yep...dall sheep is definitely my favorite meat! especially fresh over a fire!
Somehow my comment got bumped along with my spam sale friends. You spurred me to get in better shape for my upcoming Catskill New York hunt. If you saw those "mountains" (4000 feet is a big one) you'd laugh yourself silly, not to mention seeing me "hiking" up said hills like I was in dire need of an outhouse. It's all good. I just really appreciate the legitimate as opposed to the fake, no matter what the subject. Too many phonies everywhere you look... Is it true how awesome those sheep chops are on the table?
Hey noduckthreat, all of the meat from the sheep was salvaged and packed out as it's required by law up here. generally, the meat is cut off the bone, and when it's all said and done there's usually only 80lbs of meat or so and I can fit the whole thing in my pack...the weather is usually cool enough to keep it from spoiling for several days!
I lived in AK for six years.....and seeing these pics sure makes me miss it. Nice work Tyler!
Hey Tyler, what happened to all of the meat frmo the five sheep taken in such remote country? I couldn't tell from the pics if you were packing it out or not.
Thanks guys! Yea..Alaska and sheep hunting definitely get in a person's blood! what's stopping ya MWK_MN?? & thanks white slug! if nothing else, we've got more ambition than common sense! haha! Seeing a big set of horns up on a mountain will make a guy do crazy things! haha!
Way to go Brother! I wish they would had you write your story for some of these hunts!
dude you fricken rock. I gotta dump my gf and move to Alaska. I've been there 4 times and absolutely love it!
Hey man...yea..i remember! Thanks a lot! I sure love it up there too...but i heard it was pretty crowded this year.. oh..yea...#38 is in the AK range this year... my photos were kinda mixed up haha!
ON PICTURE #38 IS THIS THE ALASKAN RANGE OR BROOKS?
IVE LANDED THERE BEFORE ON PICTURE #25 IN THE ALASKAN RANGE, PLACE IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!! GOOD AMOUNT OF SHEEP TOO..
I LOVE THAT PART OF THE BROOKS RANGE!!! HULA HULA 2010 BABY!!!
WAY TO GO TYLER!! I DONT KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER OR NOT BUT WE MET AT WRIGHTS AIR, WE WERE BOTH FLYING INTO GRASSERS LANDING ON THE HULA HULA ON THIS TRIP. WE NEVER CONNECTED ON SHEEP BUT YOU AND THE OTHER GUY SURE DID!!!! CONGRATS AGAIN!!
For many outsoorsmen, Alaska is seen as one of the last great unexplored wildernesses. But for Tyler Freel, Alaska is home sweet home.
