Stalking Big Horn Sheep 1st of a series

After a couple of hours with the spotting scope and the binoculars I found some big horn sheep.

Here is where I found them. Top center part of the photo.


On the way back to the camera wagon I decided to take a break and figure out how I was going to get close enough for a few photos. Not a bad spot to take a break and scratch my head on how to get closer. I am up above Georgetown, Colorado



Here is a closer view of where they are.



About two hours later I found one of them. A early start in the morning and I might get some Big Horn Sheep Photos.

I was way to far for a photo so I took these so folks could follow the stalk from start to finish. Thanks for commenting and for looking.

Been there, done that, getting tired just looking at the climb ahead of you.

Did that in Utah once and after about an hour got to the top to find the sun was only on the side I came from and not where the Elk were.

Hi Tom, I imagine between us we can't count high enough to list the failed stalks. I think that is one of the reasons I like chasing wildlife so much it is always a challenge and even if you do everything you think was right they can WIN and not be there when you get around to getting there. Thank for looking and commenting.

Hello Roy, I didn't even take my digiscope set up with me. I did have my Zeiss 85mm spotting scope with a 20 to 60 eye piece. No sir I haven't tried the Bigma with a monocular attachment. Thanks for the comment and for looking.
