Una sport On October 1, hunting
mountain shssp waa the order of the
dajr ao we all wrnt up the HoUcIc
mountalna to the eaat of camp and
about noun when sitting on high
divide we located a band of nlna aheep
with our glaitei. They were about
three quarter of a mile away and were
bolow a rlmruck fully 1200 feet high
and It waa a two-mile walk over dsn
gvrous ground to get to them. Lron
and I atayed on the rira to waUh the
fun while Clyde and Vail went around
to them. When they arrived oo the
eceae they found one small ram In the
band and Clyde opened Are at him with
his automatic Remington at about 200
yaida hut did not score. At the sound
of the gun the sheep, not knowing
where the shot came from, rsn toward
Clyde and stopped broadside at 100
yards. Clyde hit him this time la the
horns which stunned him ao badly that
nuimiine Dana, uyae Kept up a
fusillade at the running ram until be
had fired 18 shots and by thia time the
sheep waa so bndly wounded that Clyde
and guide ran him down and cut bis
throat. Mountain sheep art very wild
for 1 crossed the trail of thia band tan
miles from there the next day and they
were still running. On our way back
to camp Leon and I taw , band of
seven ewes and lambs. The next day
all went east up a canyon on our horses,
Clyde and guide Intending to go after
his dead ram and Leon and I meant to
try our lurk for a big ram. Wa were
approaching the head of a steep canyon
when we began to see bear sign In
plenty and Vail suggested that wa sepa
rate and surround a patch of woods which
waa on our right to get ahot at a
bear. Clyde Immediately objected to
this, saying that if we were going to
bunt bear wa would bava to stay to
gether. So we went on our way, Clyde
Oscar Malay
and Vail taking all the horses and Leon
and I going on foot over the roughest
mountain country until 8 In tha after
noon. Then we sighted a band of eight
aheep trailing along a steep rim and we
aat perfectly still. They came up within
60 feet of ua and looked ua over to
tbelr own aatisfaction and went their
way. Tbey were all awes and lambs.
Had I tha camera, I could bava taken
picture of a scb sheep alone and one
of tha group. The next day we decided
that hunting rams was uphill business
and decided to hunt grouse and explore
tha country. We gt IS grouse and
found tha remains of ona cow elk thst
had bean ahot down by some misguided
sport. This cow had been dead about
two weeks and there waa no evidence
of any part having bean taken but the
teeth. About ton o'clock I noticed
Clyde changing bis apur to tha other
foot again and I asked for an explana
tion. Ua said hia foot and leg had
given out from spurring ao much and
had begun to cramp but tha old gray
waa still trying to go in a circle. We
eould plainly see that many hundreds of
alk winter in the sheltered spots st this
high altitude and there was no evidence
that any of them winter kill except the
ojder bulla and then only In very hard
winters. This shows that these elk can
easily take cars of themaelvea on their
natural range where the grass and
browse is not eaten off by cattle and
sheep in the summer. The next day
Leon and I scaled slide rock and moun
