Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Scouting Update

Darr and I have been having an incredible time scouting for the Arizona Auction Desert Sheep tag holder.  We have found some very nice rams and have had many special moments while trying to look in every nook and cranny.  Some observations that we have made over the past couple of months is that the country is greener than we have ever seen it at this time of year and the sheep seem to really be doing well.  The seem very content and happy with the conditions.  I am going to predict that in a few years we will look back on the growth rings and see a big jump on most rams during this year.  With the greener conditions the sheep seem to really be spread out all over the place.  This is something to remember if you are scouting for your upcoming December general season hunts.  You may very well find sheep in places that you wouldn't think to look.  Another thing that seems to be driven home each time we go out is that the rams never seem to be in the same place twice.  Meaning the last place that you saw them is the worst place to look for them.  We have bounced into many rattlesnakes while hiking and mostly in the dark.  Be very careful with the tall grass and extra foliage this year in regards to snakes.  Each day it seems we are turning up new rams and it is a very exciting time right now.  We have been posting regular video updates on our facebook, Instagram (@jayscottoutdoors and @darrcolburn), and YouTube accounts.  If you don't follow us yet, we suggest you come follow for the most up to date reports and videos of our scouting efforts.  All photos and videos below are by Colburn and Scott Outfitters.
