    Nebraska sheep lottery... I won!!!

    I got a call this morning from the vice chairman of the Nebraska Game and Parks commission... he told me my name was the one drawn from about 1200 plus names in a resident only big horn sheep lottey. WOW...best $25 I ever donated!!! Nebraska only lets 2 hunters each year ( some years they never have a season) hunt sheep... an auction tag, usually around $100,000 and a resident lottery. Never hunted sheep before and probably never will again but come Dec. I'll be in North West Nebraska ON A 5 day guided all expense paid hunt. The game and parks sheep biologist guides and you stay at Fort Robinsion state park. The state has not had a season on sheep for the last 3 (?) years and one biologist told me there are some brutes out there this year!! Get to take a buddy on the states dime so I hope my son can go. Maybe another buddy also but we will have to pay his way. A ONCE IN A LIFETIME event for sure!!!

    Wow congratulations on a fantastic tag. Completely immerse yourself in this hunt and enjoy it to its fullest!! Take lots of pictures, and then take some more. It would also be a good time to consider getting a good solid video camera like a GoPro. You would never regret it. I hope you find a beautiful old ram. Take two rifles with you just in case as well. One is none and two is one!!
