Wednesday started off just like any other day. A cup of coffee and checking email at 4:30 am I did not even know results were out. So I opened up the link to the DFW results not expecting anything more than a X9A Deer tag. Cool I drew! I was sure of that going into the draw with 4 points but nothing more as I only held 10 points across the board for sheep, goats and elk. As I scrolled down, there it was. One of the ten sheep fundraiser apps I purchased had that beautiful Y next to it. At first its total disbelief and then it brought tears to my eyes. Back to I can’t believe it. DFW called later that day and confirmed it. I’ve been applying in three states with the thought that I would never get the opportunity to hunt a bighorn in my lifetime. And here it is a reality!
I feel truly blessed, John

Congratulations on your fantastic sheep tag draw. Be great to talk to you about your upcoming sheep hunt. I have a great deal of experience in the Old Dads. Sent you a PM. My son was lucky this year too and drew San Gorgonio Wilderness sheep tag. So excited!

Look forward to talking sheep with you.

Amazing draw. Your in for the experience of a lifetime. The presentation that you have to go to pick up your tag, is awesome. When I drew Cady Mountains zone 9 in 2012-2013, there were like 6 hunters at the seminar and like 23 people there to help support them. Wardens, biologists, guides, members of the sheep societies etc.

I opted to not hire a guide, but I had two great and experienced friends that came along to help and that was the minimum support crew that you might want. I did 3 multi day trips to my zone and saw legal rams everyday. Made a 9 hour stalk on one only to pass on it. Next trip found a better one and 11 hours later, it was RAM DOWN!!!

Get ready for some serious loose rock, steep terrain hiking and enjoy every minute of it.
