A little after 10:00 PM I heard from Mark via satellite phone. They had just returned to camp. It was a long, but exciting day as they were able to get in close on the ram they had set their sights on stalking. It’s more than a great animal and their plan is to continue to pursue it until the right opportunity presents itself.
It was a late night and a choppy sat phone conversation, but I know Mark will give us more details as soon as possible. He believes that the reasoning why the BGAN(satellite system) won’t work is the huge mountains that sit just south of them….the system is unable to pick up a strong enough signal. Without a doubt, there will be unbelievable photos and videos to satisfy when he returns.–Katie Stevenson
