    Sheep can be in steep terrain, but unless your goat hunting you can leave the rope at home.

    That's about right only a couple a year, but leave your hiking boots and bring your running shoes, with the guides and locals watching them all year it's a race when the season opens. At least couple of the mtns you mentioned don't even have sheep from what I know. It will still be a fun hunt but be prepared for a lot of pressure. Enjoy being in an awesome area and a sheep would just be a bonus. Lots of bears, elk, deer and maybe a two or under moose as well.

    Oh I find that opposite the only time I have use rope is for goats in mcbride and the island but these moutains will be the third time I will climb them so I hope it goes good ......I have hunted alot of stone in the skeena region and a little bighorn around lillooet but kootenays bighorn are new to me and they are one of the most challenging hunts I have encountered but with a little help from my friends I hope I will be successful this season....I have hunted the lower part for elk so it shouldn't be that bad
