If there’s one thing harder than sheep hunting, it may be navigating family dynamics.
Rachel Ahtila has been a fixture in the hunting industry for some time now. She’s an incredibly accomplished sheep guide. I’ve had the pleasure of sharing a beer with her a time or two, and she’s not only a badass on the mountain, but she’s also a gem of a human.
Sitka’s film “How Far We’ve Come” follows Rachel as she finally embarks on a dall sheep hunt of her own after being a guide for over a decade. This hunt isn’t just about hunting sheep. It’s about doing it with her father by her side after a long stretch of being estranged.
Sometimes, it’s the figurative mountains that are harder to overcome.
Grab your tissue box for this one, folks.
