Flying on American, check in was a breeze and with TSA Pre Check we were at the gate in short time.
Scheduling worked out that Parker is on Spring Break this week so he could join me. Its always a blessing to hunt with your kids and I am so happy we will share this adventure together.
This hunt is for my third specie of North American Wild Sheep so I am slowly chipping away at the Slam.
The weather should be nice ranging from the high 40’s to low 80’s. I checked and re-checked the list as I packed yesterday and we have all the essential gear.
I recently upgraded the optics on my Christensen 300 RUM to the Swarovski ds 5-25 with the built in ranging and auto reticle. It is an amazing piece of hardware to say the least. I have been practicing a bit and last week was shooting 400-500+ yards in a 5-10 mph wind. I used the wind drift hash mark and hit the target every time!
We connect in Phoenix and are scheduled
to arrive Hermosillo at 1:11. I got an email from Rogelio’s daughter Maria that she will meet us at the airport then have a 4 hour drive to the ranch.
Expectations are running high and I am ready to get started Monday morning. Preparation and anticipation of the hunt can be almost as fun as the adventure itself. I am sure this trip will have its share of twists and turns as every expedition usually does.
