Wyoming Bighorn Sheep Hunting

wyoming bighorn sheep hunting

This is a high country hunt, and our region is area 7. We insist that our hunters must be in excellent physical condition. Like the sheep you stalk, you must scramble over rocks and mountain tops where the altitude is a factor and all you have is your physique. We utilize horse base camps and “backpack” style spike camps in the high elevations from 10,000 – 12,000 feet. The terrain is as rugged as the game we seek.

In order to acclimate, those who draw a permit should arrive two days before the hunt begins.

Big Horn Sheep: Archery Starts at $7,500 per person 10 Day Hunt
Big Horn Sheep: Rifle Starts at $7,500 per person 10 Day Hunt
