December – March
This high success Desert bighorn sheep hunt takes place in Sonora, Mexico. This outfitting operation controls hundreds of square miles of the most premium, free range, desert sheep terrain in all of Old Mexico. Because their hunting area consists entirely of private property, and is so well managed, the quality is exceptional. Clients can expect near 100% shooting opportunities on mature rams. Seeing four to ten rams each day is typical. With average rams stretching the tape to the mid-160’s and top-end rams pushing 180, this gives the client a legitimate chance at taking a net official Boone & Crockett trophy. All hunts are conducted by professional guides and spotters to help assure the ram-of-a-lifetime doesn’t go undetected. You and your guide team will spend hours each day glassing the rugged desert mountains until a suitable sheep has been located. Then, the stalk is on.
The outfitter will be there to meet you upon arriving at the airport in Hermosillo. He will then transport you to the ranch. Accommodations consist of a very comfortable and clean ranch house and delicious Mexican cuisine is served daily.
WTA is consistently investigating quality destinations for it’s clients. We know Mexico can be a dice roll and are very aware of the variety of issues that often accompany this part of the world . We believe this is one of the best valued Desert bighorn sheep hunts available today. Most importantly, the professionalism of the outfitter is an attribute to be envied by all outfitters operating south of the border.
