Sheep Hunting!

That's right, I went sheep hunting. I'd known of an area with a herd of wild sheep for a long time, and finally got around to checking it out during a horrid norwester.

Nice, one for the pot, one for the wall?  Smiley Did you have to get special permit from DOC for this? Is that Bradley cheek rest you have on your rifle?

Standard DOC permit covers wild sheep. Yep, it's the Bradley BUL, whatever that stands for. It works, have had it for maybe 2-3 years now.

Looks like a good hunt. Steep hills in there, a few deer and pigs too.
Been many years since I visited that area, good country, re-gen be thick by now in places. Open doc land except for roar period.

It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler

Something a bit different, eh ?! Good effort.

How did the meat taste. Much different from farmed animals ??

ps - you got a large dust spot on your sensor .... just off centre, bottom right.

Meat from a wild animal is always better than a farmed one. All down to the huge variety of feed that is available to them.

I used to shoot some wild ones bred out of local farm escapees whereI lived, they just hang around with goats. Those were the best lambs and hoggets I have ever eaten!

Cant see why they should taste bad or be unsafe to eat? As far as I know the is no danger of parasites or such, its like any other wild game out there. What I was wandering about are those rams, especially older ones as they might be same taste-case as billygoats?
