My 40 year dream of completing my Grand Slam comes true!
For over 40 years I have had a love affair with wild sheep, sheep hunting and sheep hunting conventions. I consider BOTH Gray Thornton of the Wild Sheep Foundation and Dennis Campbell of Grand Slam/Ovis good friends and more importantly good men. I have attended almost every one of BOTH of these conventions since their beginnings. On Friday January 29th, 2016 I was in attendance at the annual Grand Slam/Ovis Convention at the beautiful Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Late in the evening I was absolutely stunned as they called my name as the winner of their 3/4 Slam Drawing. As I worked my way to the stage it was humbling to be cheered and congratulated by the many friends and fellow sheep hunters in attendance. Once upon the stage I was immediately informed that I would be heading to Mexico in 3 weeks to try and finish my Grand Slam with Nayo Balderrama. Nayo is the owner of Amigos Guides and Outfitters one of Mexico's most respected outfitter.

Grand Slam/Ovis and Amigos Guides and Outfitters make my dream come true!
The 3 weeks after the Grand Slam/Ovis Convention were a whirlwind of activity getting ready for what truly would be my "Hunt of a Lifetime." Graciously my outfitter Nayo Balderrama allowed my son Andy to accompany me, so I would be trying to get ready for the both of us! In late February Andy and I boarded an airplane in Minneapolis and were on our way to Hermosillo, Mexico.

Amigos Guides and Outfitters: The Best of the Best!
From the moment I landed in Hermosillo, Mexico and was met my Bernardo Balderrama, Nayo's son, absolutely everything about my hunt was first class. I had the best and most beautiful hunting camp I have been in in over 40 years of hunting in North America. With Bernardo and 3 other guides looking for a special ram for me, my 40 year quest for a Grand Slam ended in the San Francisco Mountains of northern Sonora. I freely admit I cried like a baby when my gorgeous 9.5 year old ram was down. Until the day I die, I will be in the debt of Amigos Guides and Outfitters and the good members of Grand Slam/Ovis who made an old high school teachers lifelong dream come true!

I will be forever grateful to Dennis Campbell and the membership of Grand Slam/Ovis and to Nayo and Bernardo Balderrama of Amigos Guides and Outfitters!
