Hey it's finally here!!!

Hi there! Everyone kept asking to see proof of this hunt so I finally posted my famous sheep hunt video in which I bare my butt to mimic a sheep in order to get close enough for my bow shot! Everyone keeps asking for it...and I had to condense over an hour of footage into 6 minutes! But it's still funny! Check it out! The link is posted on Rebecca Francis | Facebook

Im kinda wondering the same thing as ronn??

Are the sheep that dumb? Ive never hunted them or read about them so someone would have to shed a little light my way. Whats their defense? Nose, eyes?? They must have poor eyesight, right?

Great sheep hunt video.
And some beautiful scenery too. Where was this shot?

Actually no, not sure if many people have used that trick. My husband saw a video once where a guy was sneaking up on a ram with a white towel covering his butt and he got the ram. Well....I had been up there packed in for 2 weeks with only my backpack so I didn't really have a white towel with me. So I used the next best thing. I was pretty surprised when I looked up and saw that the ram was coming toward me. Long story shot...it worked! And yeah because big rams are one of the hardest animals to hunt, especially with a bow. Plus we got a great laugh out of the video!

I love the creativity in this hunt but I know If I were present watching this play out I would have been laughing too loud and scared all the sheep off!
But Great Hunt. Congratulations! How far was the shot?
