Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep Hunts


This is truly a hunt of a lifetime, for the rugged outdoorsmen that is looking for a challenging pursuit of the premiere big game trophy in the U. S. These majestic animals are almost as hard to come by as their permits. We will be happy to assist you in applying for a Big Horn Sheep permit, which must be done during the month of April. The odds for drawing permits in the controlled hunt units that we guide within usually vary from 4 to1 to 14 to 1. We normally guide one to three sheep hunters per year.

We have been hunting the curly horns since 1963 with very near 100% success. We do a lot of scouting before you arrive, in order to increase your odds of success. These hunts are primarily roving back pack hunts and can be physically demanding. It has been our custom to provide two guides per hunter in order to reduce each persons pack weight and to retrieve all the animal at the time of harvest.

Horses are used to access the general area of the hunt, although the balance of the hunt is done on foot. Camp is pitched in various precarious places as the need dictates. Meals consist of M.R.E.’s (meals ready to eat), which are pretty good fare but do make you appreciate "home cookin".

90% of our rams over the years have scored in the 170’s, which are excellent trophies. We normally see several rams during a hunt (5 to 15 average) and it is your choice (with coaching) as to which ram you choose. If you draw the permit, we’ll make sure you collect your ram.
