7 Year Ram

Tags: , , , , |

7 Year  Ram by Jerry H For six years my buddy Matt and I have chased Alaska Dall Sheep rams. While we were successful in getting Matt a ram a few years back, I was still without one.  This was my seventh year trying and could I finally get my ram? Matt was unable to make it out this year due to some life events, so I got my other buddy Berke to go with me.  It was short

Here at Remote Pursuits we love the mountains, the outdoors, the pursuit, and great adventures. Ben Reynolds is a like minded soul who spends many a day doing what what we all love. Ben is a living example of the famous Alaska quote "a weekend here is another man's dream vacation."  Ben and I met through our passion for chasing crazy white wild animals called Dall Sheep. As I got to know Ben, and hear of his adventures, I

Building a Hunting 401k

Building a Hunting 401K Earlier this year I attended the annual Alaskan Chapter of SCI’s banquet. Saturday of the banquet is usually full of free seminars and skill clinics tailored to hunters. Due to a variety of things I arrived later than I had anticipated. As I wandered the halls looking for the “sheep seminar” I happened to glance into a room and see a great bow shot at an amazing bull elk. It caught my attention and I stopped

2015 Caribou Hunt

Tags: , , , , |

Any trip in Alaska is an adventure, and as the saying goes “an Alaskan’s weekend is another man’s dream vacation.” As the truck left the lights of Anchorage behind us I reflected on this saying. The frustration of this year’s sheep hunt was countered by the realization of the blessed opportunity to have spent time in sheep country. However, this was the last chance to put meat in the freezer, and with beef and pork allergies in the house,

Stone Glaciers all loaded up The title pretty much sums up 2015’s sheep hunt. Yet despite eating tag soup, any time in sheep country is a coveted adventure and a time for learning and reflection. Our trip started out great. Good weather, robust plans, and solid preparation. Pioneer X-Stream Our adventure this year involved multiple rivers and creeks in an attempt to distance ourselves from other hunters. We utilized a Pristine Ventures Pioneer X Stream to

Tags: , , , , , , |

My hunting buddy Jerry is a big contributor to Remote Pursuits. He helps me with gear reviews, puts up with my ideas, and is always ready for an adventure. Through Jerry I met Berke; and Jerry and Berke have been hunting together long before I ever met Jerry. Berke has been able to avoid the sickness we call "Sheep Fever" and Jerry and Berke seem to have moose hunting down to a science.  I highlighted their success this fall as

This Part 2 in a series on Elk Hunting in Alaska. Part 1 provided info on the history of elk in Alaska. Part 2 is The Adventure...

Remote Pursuits was given an exciting opportunity to test a new product.

2014 Sheep Hunt

Day 1 - Fresh Legs! 2014’s DIY Alaskan Dall sheep hunt has come and gone. A redo might be possible, but that is likely wishful thinking. Again the full curls have eluded us. It started out with the success of last year fresh on the mind, but as the days evaporated so did hope. This year we covered more miles than the last 2 years combined and saw our fair share of rams, just never one that crossed
