Aug 10- day hunts
Here is your chance to hunt world-class Fannin sheep in the heart of their range – the Ogilvie Mountains of the Yukon Territory. The Fannin sheep, known for its rarity and color variation is said to be a distant descendant of the Dall sheep. Their color can vary significantly, from a dark to a light colored ram with only a few dark hairs found on the body (excluding tail). For those of you chasing your North American Sheep Slam, the Fannin counts as your Stone sheep. If you’re budget-conscious, the savings would be significant.
This outfitter has one of the top Fannin sheep areas in the country. The hunting concession consistently produces high shot opportunities on mature rams on an annual basis. All hunts are fully guided 1×1 with experienced guides utilizing modern equipment. These are remote hunts and are conducted out of spike camps. Although some of the hunts are conducted via horseback, the majority of the hunts are backpack-style, so hunters need to be in good physical shape. You and your guide will be hunting at about 4K – 6K feet in moderately rugged terrain.
In addition to sheep, this area boasts a tremendous mountain caribou population making a great combination hunt. These hunts are extremely limited, give WTA a call today.
