The experience of an alpine hunt for the golden-crowned King of the Alaska Alpine, can be a life-changing event for both the hunter and the hunted. It is part of the mystique of sheep hunting-that the ‘sport' learns as much about himself and his capabilities, as he learns about the hunt. In Hunters of the White Sheep you will encounter an eclectic collection of hunters and their backstories as they hunt for the golden-horned rams. Read along and you will be transported to base camps in the sheep mountains by foot, airplane, ATV, jet boat, and bicycle. Once at the base camp, the hunters forgo mechanized transportation and revert to shoe leather as they pursue the white rams over wind-swept ridges, frightening chasms, chilly-blue glaciers, and sometimes, surprisingly gentle hills. Although much hunting information, such as techniques and locations can be gleaned by reading the stories carefully, this is not intended to be a how-to-hunt sheep book.
