Bighorn Sheep Hunt

October 18th, 2010

By: Terry Fieseler sheep-hunt2

The hunt started on August 15th with the opening of archery season, when I hunted with my longbow.   It was very hard to find rams in an area that I would have the chance to make a stalk.  The terrain was so steep and rugged with cliffs and rock slides.  At an elevation of 10,000 feet plus, it is extremely hard to get within my 20 – 25 yard range to take a a shot.  I was able to stalk 3 rams one day and closed the distance to 100 yards before the rams winded me and the stalk was over.  I had been climbing for over 7 hours at this point, sometimes using both hands and my bow just to stay on the cliff face… » More: Bighorn Sheep Hunt

Last week, we enjoyed some wobble trap shooting and a successful antelope hunt near Cora, WY with next generation claiming future turf.  Falconry is referred to as “the sport of Kings” and highly regarded internationally as the ultimate hunting pursuit.  These birds are a cross breed between a wild Gyr and Peregrine Falcon.  Cobra, pictured in this blog post, is 5 years old and this was his first perfect “stoop” on a Sage grouse this season.  David Kennedy is the falconer from Atlanta who spends much of the fall training falcons at his “House of Grouse” cabin in Eden with fellow falconer and breeder Steve Chindgren from Salt Lake City.
