On opening day, Tyler Freel and his buddies took three beautiful Dall Sheep rams in the Brooks Range.

As with pretty much every sheep hunt in Alaska, this one started out with a long pack into the area we would be hunting. We had about 12 miles to cover and many streams to cross. As daunting as the task was, the trip will only got harder from here. All of my sheep hunts are unguided, which adds a challenge and sense of accomplishment. An unguided sheep hunt on public land in Alaska is one of the most physically challenging hunts in North America. Here is the story and photos of how my 2011 sheep hunt unfolded.
