Alaskan Hunter Scores a Record Dall Sheep
Record Dall sheep have been very scarce in recent years. However one Alaskan resident was lucky to find such a trophy. Bryce McGough from Chugiak, Alaska and his father Mike left their hunting camp in search of a Dall Sheep. They would return to that camp 14 hours later. Bryce and his father had hiked into the Tok Management Area and spent four days hiking, climbing, stalking Dall sheep. Bryce shot the Dall sheep, it was one of the largest he had seen and this was his 7th Dall sheep hunt. Bryce and his father knew it was a prize sheep. They field dressed it and place it in their packs, adding about 80lbs each. Instead of going back the way they had come, they decided to head down a canyon that was in the direction of their camp, hoping it would be an easier hike.

If the 16-foot Burmese python was easy to capture and kill, it might have been because the snake had just consumed a 76-pound deer in the South Florida Everglades.

A 395-pound blue marlin caught on the first day of the Bisbee's Black &
Blue marlin tournament off Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, was not the heaviest of the event, but it was worth more than $1.1 million. Local angler Luis Liera was credited with the catch aboard Tiger Spirit, owned by Ned Wallace of Newport Beach, Calif. It was second in weight to a 409-pound blue caught the same day aboard Bad Medicine, but Tiger Spirit had entered more daily jackpots and claimed more than half of a total purse worth $2,173,955. "We've been fishing the Black & Blue since 1993," Wallace said Sunday. "We've placed in the money three of the last four years, but this is our biggest fish yet. I keep the boat here in Cabo and all of our success is due to my crew. They're local boys and they really know what they're doing out there."
