Where to hunt Dall Sheep
The snow-colored Dall sheep inhabits the snow-covered peaks of America’s northmost mountain ranges. Like other iconic species, Dall sheep is raised on game farms and ranches far away from its original habitat, like Argentina and Texas. But for the genuine hunting experience, you’ll have to travel to some of the most remote and inaccessible areas of the continent, with most hunting opportunities located in Alaska and Yukon.
The most affordable Dall hunting experiences are to be found on game farms and ranches in Texas and Argentina, and cost between $2,500 and $5,000. Hunts in Dall sheep’s natural range include travel to remote destinations, and are typically priced between $16,000 and $20,000. You may have to add the cost of licenses and tags, and travel from your residence to state or provincial capital. A Dall sheep hunt can be combined with a caribou or bear hunt, which could mean a better bargain overall.

When to hunt Dall Sheep?
The Dall sheep hunting season is short. In Alaska it runs from August 10 to September 20. In Yukon it may run until the end of October in some zones, but the best times for sheep hunting are early in the season. On game farms and ranches the animal of course can be hunted a year round.

In August and September Dall sheep mostly graze on the Alpine meadows, but may descend below the tree line for water or to visit a salt lick. Their white coat makes them relatively easy to stalk over long distance. Stalking them is another story, with natural alertness of the animal intensified by difficulty of walking over boulders, dwarf pine, bogs, and whatnot. Glass from below, stalk from above, don’t show yourself over the skyline, and try to hold back “sheep fever” as you realize the ram of your dreams is in your sights, or almost there.

Dall sheep populations have been protected not only by game laws, but also by the remoteness and inaccessibility of their habitat. To harvest a mature ram, a hunter will have to live in a spike camp with the scantest of comfort, cover mile after mile on terrain where even sheep can break their land, freeze on the permafrost and boil over with sweat. What for, you may ask? For a few pounds of (absolutely delicious) meat and graceful, curling hurls? Or for the flow of emotions that only hunters will understand, as you almost crawl on your belly to take the position for the shot? If you possibly can, go Dall sheep hunting and discover why it’s on almost every serious hunter’s dream hunt list!
Dall Sheep, Grizzly Hunt USA
These horseback hunts take place north of the Arctic circle on the south side of the Brooks Range. Hunting with horses allows us to pack plenty of good food, a comfortable camp, and cover a vast area that would otherwise be virtually impossible to hunt. You will fly into our remote gravel airstrip where we will meet you with a string of pack horses, load up your gear, and lead you to our rustic yet comfortable basecamp. From basecamp we will take the horses further into the mountains and set up a spike camp consisting of two tents, a small kitchen, plenty of good food, and an astonishing view of the landscape. Generally we will hunt on foot from there, occasionally taking saddle horses on day trips to cover more ground. Black bear may be taken on a trophy fee basis. Wolf and Wolverine are included in the Base price.
