SHEEP HUNTS: ONE MAN'S JOURNEYS TO THE HIGH COUNTRY is, first and foremost, a series of recounted hunting tales. As the title suggests, these hunts took place in the mountains with wild sheep as the prey. In the larger hunting community, wild sheep enjoy a special allure. In major part, that's because the mountains they inhabit present unique and significant challenges. Just getting to the isolated corners of the world these high-dwelling mammals call home is time-consuming and difficult. Once in sheep country, the hunter must contend with terrain that's high, steep and tough to navigate. The physical demands are considerable. Constant climbing, often with all one's equipment on one's back, demands fitness and durability. Hunting in the mountains also requires mental toughness. Dealing with atrocious weather, less-than-ideal food, sleep deprivation and frustration for days on end tends to erode one's sense of purpose. But, mountains are also glorious places where beautiful vistas abound, and a unique ecosystem awaits discovery. In the universe of hunters, few are fortunate enough to experience the agony and the ecstasy of a sheep hunt. For those who have been there, SHEEP HUNTS will resonate; for the many more who are intrigued by the prospect, the book will provide the reader, whatever his or her hunting experience, with insights into the world of mountain hunting. More than that, the book is written so that the reader feels like he or she is accompanying the author as he experiences natural beauty and stalks sheep; deals with trials and tribulation; and lives with emotional ups and downs. Rather than presenting a cleaned-up account, where mistakes are expunged from the record, the author is brutally honest about his failings and shortcomings. As the chapters tick by, it's impossible not to notice the author evolve as knowledge is gained, capabilities are inproved and goals altered. In the end, SHEEP HUNTS delivers a compelling account of the author's two decades worth of mountain adventure.

About the Author:

Paul C. Carter has been an avid big-game hunter for more than forty years. Like many others, the first animal he hunted was the white-tailed deer. Paul is a dedicated deer-tracking enthusiast, and he has written a book on that subject. In addition to his exploits in pursuit of North America's most hunted animal, Paul has has hunted and taken numerous big-game animals from Mexico to Alaska, many with a muzzleloading rifle. Besides whitetails, his other hunting passion is wild sheep, and the mountains they inhabit. He has three Grand Slams of North American wild sheep to his credit, two of which were accomplished with a muzzleloader sporting open sights--the only times this feat is believed to have been achieved by a hunter. Paul is married to Janet, his wife of thirty-six years. They have two grown sons and currently live in Dalton, Massachusetts, where they enjoy their country home and the wildlife that frequents the property, especially the deer. Visit Paul on the web @ www.paulccarter.com Paul's other books are: Tracking Whitetails: Answers to Your Questions; Great Shot!: A Guide to Acquiring Shooting Skills for Big-Game Hunters
