Writer’s Contest: Idaho Sheep Hunting Disaster

By Ronald Kirk In 2008 I was fortunate enough to draw a coveted tag for Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep in the very rugged Salmon River Wilderness area of Central Idaho. I was camped in the remote, friendly little community of Dixie, Idaho. Dixie is a cluster of about 100 log cabins nestled between three wilderness areas. One of them is the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The other two are the Gospel Hump Wilderness, and the Selway/Bitteroot Wilderness.

One-shot...

Mulies on the Kaibab

By Dave Heath Sportsman’s News Pro-Staff I have been an avid hunter for over 15 years and have never drawn what some would say is a premium tag. That would change this year or so I thought. Each year I try and put in for multiple states for anything from antelope to bison, but when my dad couldn’t speak when he looked at our Arizona results, I knew we had drawn something special. I have never seen the old man so exited. He literally could not speak. It took a little while to figure out that he and I...
