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.
