I feel very fortunate to have been with my brother when he punched his once in a lifetime sheep tag.  Amazing job on the pics @bitter24  #sundownerguideservice #hunt az #sheephunting #desertbighornsheep #desertbighorn #outdoorsmans
Scouting video from the day we found Rayne's ram,  always a shame to see a big old ram missing his horn.  #sundownerguideservice #adbss #hunt az #desertbighorn #sheephunting
A little footage of Rayne's ram.  #sundownerguideservice #hunt az #adbss #bighornsheep #desertsheep
Congratulations to Rayne on his beautiful ram.  Lots of hard work paid off on this backpack hunt.  #sundownerguideservice #adbss #desertbighorn #sheephunting
Just a little mass reference on lee's buck.  Hard work paid off on this one.  #hunt az #massntrash #couesdeer #sundownerguideservice
Lee and I worked like crazy to kill this buck, well worth it. 117 3/8.  #hunt az #huntaz #sundownerguideservice #couesdeer #azcoues #coueswhitetail

..........we locked onto roving packs of tarpon that would carefully creep out from under shadows of the mangroves, then EXPLODE through the bottom-darkening bait, then turn gently gliding back under the thick vegetative canopy. It took a couple of shots to get the timing right, but I laid a crossing shot in front of the nearest silvery cruiser and got HAMMERED and after an insane tug-of-war, we had our first of the day!.........πŸŒΏπŸŽ£πŸŸπŸ€™πŸ˜

......off in the distance we spy another major flock of dive bombing pelicans so Bruce fires up the big black Suzuki and we are off! We cover the gap and pole onto the flat just as I get this crazy idea to try stalking a flats tarpon on foot. Knee deep, Blake and I tiptoe our way along the edge and see a pair of beauties coming straight at us. One veers off, just as the fly touches down while the other turns and rockets forward, opening that big wide mouth and the fly DISAPPEARS! ......πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄

Following a quick fray-removing retie, the panga crept back into position and then some knucklehead fires a wayward cast INTO the mangroves and the fly is now hung SOLID. At Bruce's direction, I grab my back up rod and flick a cast with maybe ten feet of line out and get absolutely CRUSHED by a another larger tarpon!  INSANE! That fish ended up being the largest of the day and was a wonderful test of the Orvis H2 ten weight and Galvan Grip's stopping and pulling power.πŸŸπŸ˜€πŸ€™πŸ™ŒπŸŒ΄

AWESOMENESS

Day one flat light 
a few bones and jacks
We threw at some tailers
those permit were lax

Different plan today 
we ran for the border
The run was so smooth
but surely not shorter

In the distance Honduras
and Guatemala too
A quick right turn
as the sky went blue
.
And there they were 
rolling in a lake
fun-size tarpon
a bunch lipped by Blake

Pushing permit too
would follow and tip
But nothing you'd feel 
behind a long strip

Tomorrow might be different 
regardless so fun
Pray for northeast 
and plenty of sun
