After two days of flying I am finally sitting in my hotel room in Norman Wells NWT waiting to fly in tomorrow morning to hunt Dall Sheep and Mountain Caribou with Arctic Red River Outfitters.

We flew in this morning and hit the range to check my Boswell .300 WSM and loaded our packs. Anticipation is running high.  I will give you an up date a soon as I get out on the 28th.

Good luck to all of you heading out on your hunts.

    By the looks of that metal piping some guys in the past had some dissapointing sheep hunts….or it’s a damn good thing they got they took the time to shoot!

    Good luck on your hunt, sheep fever is slowly creeping in on me I can see myself up that way in 5 years of so.

    You are in Wells at the best time of year… the beer goes skunky after November! True! Ask your pilot to point out Heart Lake about 30 miles west of NW along the Canol Rd… great spot for BIG black bears!

    Good luck Jason!

    Good luck Jason! Remember, lamb tips are cool and broomed equates to character! Now go get ’em!

    Hi Jason – Just got back from Arctic Red the other day. As you know, spectacular and wild country. Had a great hunt and was fortunate to take a 40 3/4 inch ram. Enjoy the country and find a good one! By the way, the gear surpassed my expectations. The pants, jacket , and vest worked very well and were extremely comfortable and breathable. Ditto for the rain gear. Great stuff. Keep up the good work!

    Good luck Jason. Hope you can get close to a sheep. I wasn’t real close but got in a long shot a few days ago.

    Enjoy the hunt! I just got home from the NWT, the Yellowknife airport looked like a KUIU convention! Met Pedro who was also carring a new Icon 5000, great guy, enjoyed visiting with him and all the other KUIU family. Jason, my gear was flawless. Rain, sun, fog, sleet, never skipped a beat. The Icon 5000 worked great and the gaiters are the best I have ever worn. Hope your hunt is as good as mine, thanks for your ideas and innovation. Tom Armosino, Oregon
