Hunt Details

Hunting is a hobby for some and a way of life for many. I was introduced to the sport five years ago and it has become a growing passion of mine. I have only ever harvested small game and now I have moved on to bigger game... I never thought one day I would be a world record holder.... There is so much time, effort, and energy that goes into every single hunt. Every hunt requires skill, dedication, and attention. Each hunt teaches me something new that I didn’t know before. I genuinely love and respect the sport. It’s not always about harvesting an animal, just being outdoors I feel like brings me closer to God. I describe it as my sanctuary. In May of 2021, I successfully harvested an Aoudad. This hunt couldn’t have gone any more perfect. My fiancé and I watched the game all day and eventually they ended up making their way down towards us hours later. In those moments, I was shaking and so nervous. I watched the animal take a step forward- I took a deep breath in - exhaled and pulled the trigger. I took the shot 72 yards downhill. The Aoudad ran 15 yards and dropped, in that moment I grabbed my face and started crying. It’s beyond humbling and gratifying when you harvest any animal and most importantly take a perfect shot. This memory and moment- is something I will forever cherish and share for the rest of my life. I am beyond proud and thankful. As a hunter these are the memories & opportunities we live for.

    Shayna well done, but please go to central Idaho for a Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep for a challenge in Central Idaho in the Salmon River country. This part of Idaho is all wilderness classification so no motorized / wheeled vehicles and you will be horseback and foot for the whole trip. My friend spent a week stalking on ram over countless miles of as rugged country as it gets in the USA. Once you reach this level of hunting then you reach another level of spirituality and the spirit of the hunt.
