When your hunting partner has the wherewithal to capture a photo this pure, no action in the world can express my gratitude. My first ram, my first glacier based hunt, my first Chugach hunt. There are so many things that accumulate before and during a hunt, and then this. The moment that everything has built up too. This is the moment where a hunter tests himself, the moment where you take the life of an animal as quickly and humanely as possible. And too me, this moment is not what it's all about. Yeah, it's what you've worked for and spent countless hours prepping for. But this moment isn't the one a hunter remembers in 50 years. An old sheep hunter and long time Alaskan guide recently told me, "It's not about the rams or any of that. In 50 years you two are gonna be talking about that conversation you had in the tent about girls from high school that got away." And honestly, he could not be more right. In all actuality, of the things you remember from a hunt, the actual killing is probably the furthest from the most vivid memories I can recollect. Maybe those conversations are about something a little different, but nonetheless those conversations are what make a good hunting partner into a life long friend. So, in 50 years when I can't remember this portion of this 34-mile man maker of a hunt, I have you to thank @huntinfool590 thank you for capturing this moment. #aklyfe #dallsheep #kuiunation #chugach #solohntr #vortexnation #dreamsdocometrue

Man, what a hunt to be a part of. So happy I got to share this happy day of my Uncle Barney's. Toughest thing mentally and physically I've ever had to do. But my, the courage received once you realize what you are actually capable of doing is rewarding. I was pushed farther than ever and I feel so much stronger because of it. Thanks alaska for kicking my butt. ๐Ÿ
And thank you to the layers and layers of clothing that make me look like a chubster๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ Although, I couldn't have done it without my awesome @kuiu_official clothing, best hunting apparel I've ever owned.
Hunt on๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Cloudy but gorgeous hike nonetheless! I went up the O'Malley gulley and started up to O'Malley's false peak, but the clouds were rolling in thicker than I cared for.

Finally got around to posting this. @willloomans and I waited atop the mountain for an hour hoping the fog would lift. It was certainly worth it when it did! ๐Ÿ”#travelphotography #chugach #alaska #takemeback #hiking #hikingadventures #lakeeklutna #placesforyoutovisit #beautifuldestinations

Snow is falling on the peaks of the front range, and it has me dreaming in winter...๐Ÿ’™
