View Full Version : I Drew A Colorado Sheep Tag!!!

05-05-2011, 08:10 PM
I'm still kind of in shock. I drew a unit S6 Ram tag. I'm interested in any resources ie. books, videos, etc, etc, to help a rookie sheep hunter out. S6 is the Pikes Peak unit. Any sheep nuts wanna go??? Anyone else ever draw this tag?

That's awesome, congratulations. Wish I could help but know nothing...just wanted to say congrats! Good luck.

Congratulations!!! I hope you make the most of your tag with a memorable hunt and a fine trophy at the end! And please keep the rest of us who are jealous and did not draw updated with lots of pictures, please!

Guy's, thanks for all the congrats! I still can't believe I've actually drawn a sheep tag! Like a lot of you I apply in several different states for different species and this is my first quality tag I've drawn. Funny that it's in my home state in a unit that's in my backyard! I keep waiting for the DOW to call and tell me they made a mistake! LOL! Someone asked how many points I had... I had 7. The hunt dates are Sept 23 thru Oct 7, I've already requested and got these two weeks off work. I'll be spending a lot of time scouting this summer too. I've spent some time backpacking and hiking on Pikes Peak already. I was very serious about asking if anyone with more experience sheep hunting than me is interested in going. If your interested shoot me a PM with your hunting resume... just kidding. But seriously, if your interested or know someone who might be, let me know! I read Mike Duplans article in the annual sheep issue and he hit on the fact that there's no shame in finding some guy's who've hunted sheep in the past to help you out... I couldn't agree more. What can I say the sheep have got me shameless!

Congratulations to you for drawing a tag very few people get to draw. That'll be so cool to see the pictures.

Congratulations and good luck! Duplan's article was an awesome one, and had some great advice for a guy in your position. Don't forget to bring a camera and a camcorder!

I hope some of your luck comes over and makes a stop in the Montana draw for a fellow Eastman's Forum member.

Good luck! I don't believe that is such a thing as a bad sheep tag! :-)

Nice Work. Best of Luck !!

Congrats!! Can't wait to see those pics!

Congrats you have got a good tag and its proximity to home is a huge plus. I do not know a lot about sheep other than the experience I had hunting them with my dad in S17 about 6 years ago. If you want send me a pm and I will send you my experiences with them. Like I said I do not know much but I would be very happy to share what I know. (Also have a buddy and his dad who hunted sheep somewhere in those parts awhile back, I will contact him and see exactly where it was)

Fantastic, I'm also just a little bit jealous, so you enjoy yourself and hunt hard, and hopefully you will get rewarded for it !

Congratulations!! Wooo hooo. If I can help you at all I'd be glad to. I can't come on the hunt...lol. I've hunted sheep 6 times (3 draw tags) and have taken 6 rams. My brother and two sons have also drawn sheep tags and I helped them with their rams. If I can help sort stuff out, I'd be glad to. I don't know your unit at all, but I'm willing to help if I can. One thing to keep in mind....never shoot a ram you only saw running away from you.....all rams look huge from the back. :)

Jealous....Congrats and good luck! Have 8 points but no experience, looking forward to it myself In the meantime, I'll look forward to hearing about your experience.

Guys, I really appreciate it but this hunt already happened 3 YEARS AGO!!! LOL! Here's the link for the hunt.

Thats what I call a thread bump!

Nice ram

06-20-2014, 03:27 PM
I totally missed that it was a bump. Stupid Me!

06-20-2014, 05:21 PM
Congrats-good luck on the hunt

:) I'd still be in shock 3 years later if I drew, much less filled, a CO sheep tag! hehe

But blowing up the rock in front of you sounds like something I would do. Reminds me of the hole in my turkey blind.

Drawing a sheep tag is a rare thing. Hope you get a great ram. Only bad thing is one sheep hunt is never enough.

New guys never look at dates and guys like Timber jump right in without looking either! Congrats on your hunt and the record for the oldest thread to come back up! HAHA!
