Fifty years ago, Latham Myers learned to hunt with his grandpa. Then it was for rabbits and squirrels; today he scales the highest peaks in the world in the toughest of big-game hunts. It was his grandpa who taught him how and why we hunt, and it was this same mentor who instilled in him a love of hunting that grew into one of his greatest passions, hunting wild sheep and goats on the pinnacles of the world.

In 1995, Latham started his mountain-hunting journey with an add-on hunt for the challenging North American mountain goat. Since then, he has hunted on five continents and in eleven countries, including six trips to Russia, four to Canada, and two to Spain. Along that journey he accomplished a Triple Slam: a Grand Slam of North American sheep (Dall, Stone, Rocky Mountain bighorn, desert bighorn), an Ovis World Slam (twelve species of wild sheep), and a Capra World Slam (twelve species wild goats). During that process, he maintained a journal and took thousands of photographs of his hunts around the globe. Hunting Wild Sheep and Goats around the World is the culmination of those efforts.

Come travel with Latham as he hunts wild sheep in the magnificent Rocky Mountains, the icy Northwest Territories, and the desiccated Chihuahuan Desert. Feel your heart pound as he stalks ibex in the heart of Central Asia. Watch the sun break over the rugged ridgeline of the Dzhugdzhur Mountains in Siberia's Far East and set sublimely on the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Struggle with him up the rugged, picturesque Caucasus Mountains-from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea-while hunting wild tur, and tremble with him from exertion as he climbs after blue sheep in the shadows of the Himalayan Mountains. Experience with him the incredible highs of hunting ibex in the Taurus Mountains of Turkey and the bitter lows of failing on a Marco Polo sheep hunt in the mighty Pamir Mountains. Follow along as he pursues ibex and chamois in the Gredos, Cantabrian, Pyrenean, and Beceite Mountains, and be amazed at the grandeur of the vast Verkhoyansk Mountains as he hunts snow sheep near the Arctic Circle.

So, grab your rifle and come along with Latham as he finds adventure in Hunting Wild Sheep and Goats around the World

Customer Reviews

Travel guide for any mountain hunter Review by WV Hunter
Latham does a great job of taking you there with him on his hunt stories. He tells the good and bad things that can happen and do. His writing is very readable and entertaining. The photos and maps are a great addition and make the story even more interesting. I vow to keep better notes and maps on my hunts after reading his book. The detail made me realize how much I have already forgotten of past trips I have taken. His book is a must have addition for any serious hunter/outdoorperson's library. I look forward to his next work. (Posted on 12/5/2018)
