    Some of you might remember when I posted up my then 9 year old grandson with his first black bear. Well this last August at age 11 he got his first full curl dall sheep up in Alaska. I was proud of him for being able to even get back into the spot...hard climbing that'll make grown men cry. Needless to say I'm one proud grandpa. 250 yard shot..one shot kill.

    For those that may be interested I've got a slideshow posted at Kodak Gallery covering Alaska Memories since 1978...it's been added to every year and can be seen here:
