Brenna & Kaitlin Pietila holding the horns of Russell's sheep; story below
This summer, Russell Helminen went sheep hunting. An airplane brought him to this place in the mountains, dropped him off with two wks. worth of food and his gun, tent, etc. There was a GPS involved here, but don't ask me about it....Russ walked and walked, over rocks and gulleys...no trees. tented in small hollows. Got his sheep, and notified the pilot. Russ dressed the sheep, and walked some more to where the pilot would pick him up with 70 lbs. more weight on his back...all his gear, etc. He figured that he walked over 50 miles in that one week. He doesn't show it here, because of the big smile, but he said he was bone-tired weary!
