When I am getting ready for a mountain hunt, I always include a visit to FTW Ranch as part of my training program. One of the most common situations on a sheep hunt, is a longer shot than normal, something you acquire at the SAAM course. My Dall sheep hunt gave me an expected surprise! My range finder was not able to measure the distance due a heavy fog bank between the sheep and my shooting position. I estimated that my shot was no further than 300 yards, so I dialed my turret to my hunting zero HZD as SAAM calls it), where I knew I was ok to shoot from 100 to 300 yards without compensation. To my surprise, the distance was 93 yards and a perfect shot placement. The information you learn in SAAM is crucial for any hunting situation. It is worth to invest in your shooting skills before any hunt. Armando Klein
