Editor's Note: On April 6, Sitka Ambassador Adam Foss threaded an arrow through the lungs of a Carmen Island Desert Ram, making him the youngest archer ever to take all four species of North American Wild Sheep. He is 24. He was hunting with his brother, Cam, and his dad, Sitka Athlete Tom Foss. Each of Adam's "Quest for the 'Four'" posts highlights a sheep hunt that brought him closer to his goal. We've shared "Fortress of Stone" before here at Sitka Insight, but in light of Adam's recent accomplishment, we feel it certainly warrants another watch. If you haven't already, check out Parts I and II in this series.
Here are some of Adam's thoughts on his B.C. Stone's Sheep hunt:
Sometimes words fail to portray the ruggedness of a landscape or put you in the midst of a thick mountain fog. Hopefully, this short film my brother Cam and I created last summer helps you share in our excitement and adventure.
A special thanks to Cam for teaming up with me on this hunt. His knowledge of sheep, mental toughness and physical ability in the mountains are matched by very few. Both of us are eternally inspired by our father – a great bowhunter, sheep guide and friend.
Thanks everyone for following along, and stay tuned for an account of our Mexico Desert Sheep Hunt.
