Took these pics in Cody Wyoming. What you are looking at here is considered one of the greatest feats in hunting: The North American Sheep Grand-Slam. 

Well less than 200 people have ever achieved this feat. The reasons being a combination of difficulties: Cost of hunts, the limited chance to get tags, the difficulty of hunting / hiking in some of the terrain. And finally…the ability to score a shot in said terrain. 

The 4 types of sheep are: Dall, Stone, Bighorn and Desert Sheep. 

I like hard things. Difficult accomplishments. And earned achievement. Am I a big-time hunter? No. I have hunted some whitetail deer east of the Mississippi. It’s cool. I don’t do it every year. Probably more like once every 8 years. 

But I have to say, the idea of going for stuff like this really appeals to me. The fitness training, using kit as lite as possible, potential for high-angle shooting, managing risks and inclement weather. This is hunting on a level of difficulty I’ve never come close to experiencing. 

The only limitations are money and time. I mean sure, I could spend the money on this endeavor; but for that amount of coin, I’d probably prefer to just buy a machine gun instead. So…in the grand-slam community that makes me an internet poser. 

However with all that being said, deep down in the darkest recesses of my soul, I get this. I really do. It hits me in a way whitetail hunting never has. 

I like hard things.
