Overall Impression: Tough, hard, steep.

The Knik Glacier team is comprised of serious mountain climbers and fanatical sheep hunters. Braun Kopsack is famous throughout Alaska as a world-class mountain runner. He also has 8 or 10 top end Pope & Young Dall sheep in the book. The Chugach Mountain Range is Alaska's toughest and steepest. The Chugach range also holds Alaska's largest rams. A Chugach hunt is not for beginners. You must be in shape, strong, determined and experienced in order to survive the hunt. (Several hunters every year freeze up because of the steepness.) I took a 164" B&C, 9 1/2 year old monster ram on the 5th day of the hunt. We sighted 28 other non-legal rams. The big ram was the only legal ram in the area. (In 5 years the area will be astounding.) We also saw a half dozen large black bears and a dozen mountain goats. Fifty Dall sheep ewes and lambs were sighted. From the air several moose were sighted. Backpack hunts are difficult and challenging at best. Make sure you really want to do it. If you are looking for something that will test every fiber of your being, then this is your hunt.
