The bighorn sheep is one of the most sought-after trophy hunts in North America, and for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure this outfitter offers access to terrain within Cody Country that is second to none. The price listed below includes a personal guide and a camp cook: too often clients or guides are concerned about the chores awaiting at their hunting camp – and as a consequence they either leave too late or return too early and thereby miss the opportunity to reach the right positions at the right time. The goal is that clients harvest trophies that meet or exceed their expectations while experiencing an escapade that stays with them for decades.

BIGHORN HUNTING IS OUR BUSINESS AND OUR PASSION. We specialize in hunting areas 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. These are the areas where we spend our time hunting shed antlers and guiding pack trips, in the spring and in the summer – and where we spend our time guiding trophy hunts for mountain lion, deer, elk, and sheep in the fall and in the winter. Areas 1 – 5 have the reputation as some of the most rugged, yet rewarding, hunting terrains in North America. These sheep guides are dedicated professionals who are committed to hunting with an in-depth knowledge of our sheep areas. We are proud of our guides, and we have handpicked them for their work-ethic, backcountry skills, pleasing personalities, and their sincere desire to harvest trophies.

This is a 10 day 1 on 1 Bighorn sheep hunt. Since 1998 we have guided over 157 sheep trophy hunts, and we have obtained a success rate of 100% in most years yet since inception a success rate of 95% overall! The average age of the rams was 9.5 years, and the average score was in the mid-to-high 160’s. We strive to harvest great trophies – not just any ram: we are dedicated, and we will never encourage a client to shoot simply to take a shot. Instead, we will work to harvest a ram that excites both the guide and the hunter. We have built our business on the success and satisfaction of our clients – and our track-record of acquiring great rams is based on our superior skillset.

If you hunt for the duration of the trip – if you are physically in good form, and if you are willing to cooperate with the guide – and we cannot stage a shot at a quality bighorn sheep then we will offer six days of complimentary hunting at a later date. If you are unable to hunt the duration of the trip – or should you wound a quarry or miss a well-staged shot – then we will offer additional days of hunting at a later date for a fair day-rate. We reserve time each October for these scenarios.
Transportation (To/From Basecamp)
This is a wilderness horseback hunt. We specialize in hunting areas 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. These are the areas where we spend our time hunting shed antlers and guiding pack trips, in the spring and in the summer – and where we spend our time guiding trophy hunts for mountain lion, deer, elk, and sheep in the fall and in the winter. Areas 1 – 5 have the reputation as some of the most rugged, yet rewarding, hunting terrains in North America. Learning where the sheep live, how they move, and how to reach them, requires patience and years of experience that is perfected through mistakes and blunders. Thanks to many of the latter, combined with our work-ethic, we maintain a current knowledge base of the natural changes that occur in that tricky terrain. Our sheep guides are dedicated professionals who are committed to hunting with an in-depth knowledge of our sheep areas. We are proud of our guides, and we have handpicked them for their work-ethic, backcountry skills, pleasing personalities, and their sincere desire to harvest trophies.
