One day he was “talking about it” and the “next day” he found himself on Adventure Mountain Sheep Hunting. In his case, Adventure Mountain was the Chugach Range and the next day he couldn’t believe he finally got a permit to hunt for Dall Sheep. David Kautz is a hunter who has applied for the permit for three years. He worked through many obstacles to make this hunt happen. He never took for granted that it would be easy or that it was deserved. But once he did receive his awarded permit, he took advantage of the opportunity, he seized the moment and stood tall on the heart of the Chugach Range in Alaska. Then he hunted hard and harvested a great Ram on Adventure Mountain Sheep Hunting.
Although it started with a vision of grandeur, the reality of Adventure Mountain’s horizon stood 2,800 feet above; this is how a realist attacks a formidable obstacle. With a little bit of punishment a realist can wipe the sweat from his brow and ask for more. He is a man by definition, but a superhero for 60+ years on planet earth. Johnny Helton and Talon McDonald were his guides for the next 8 days. David was the challenger on Adventure Mountain Sheep Hunting. With respect to all that were involved, it ended with a bang, a harvest of the Chugach Ranges’ finest meat and the rifle report was echoed by the high walls of the surrounding peaks. A great voyeur of Adventure Mountain gave its flesh to feed the wary hunters and the cycle must be respected. Only in Vast Alaska….
