What to expect when Idaho bighorn sheep hunting
This is not just Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep hunting… it’s the ultimate wilderness experience! No fences, fancy lodges, travel by SUV or ATV, nor crowds. What they do offer is a true mountain man experience and the hunt of a lifetime in beautiful mountains, valleys and ridges of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho. No roads, no cars, no power lines in an area that spans 340+/- square miles. This country is rich in history and free roaming, non pressured wildlife such as Elk, Mule Deer, Sheep, Bear, Mountain Lions and Wolves. Many of the sheep here can be accessed via horseback so this is a hunt that physical fitness is important but not imperative to success. We have extensive experience with this outfitter and just can’t say enough about how good he is.
*This Outfitter also has an INCREDIBLE November mule deer hunt during the rut as well in the same area. Highly recommended.
Idaho’s Bighorn sheep Auction permit brought the third highest amount of those offered by any western state or province for Rocky Mountain sheep in this 2009’s auction. This Outfitter would be an excellent choice for your auction tag.

Camp consists of a cook (kitchen) tent and hunter tents (two hunters per tent) and is right up on top of a big, flat ridge with about ten finger ridges that come off of it. There is no need to get up super early because you are right amongst the deer and can glass just a few hundred yards from camp while breakfast is being cooked and the horses are being saddled by the guides. Once you eat breakfast, you will ride out with your guide and glass the finger ridges.
- Idaho Sheep Hunting – Hunt #1: Idaho sheep hunting has been a challenge this year due to all of the smoke from forest fires. We hunted in the smoke for seven days before finding a ram for our first hunter. He wasn’t huge, but we figured he would go about 160 or so. We called […]
Custom gear list for bighorn sheep hunting in Idaho
Layering your clothing is very important. However you can go overboard. You want to be dressed to travel on foot, then a coat or jacket to keep you warm while sitting or riding, then rain gear if necessary. If you bring a heavy coat be prepared to leave it at camp or on your horse as it will be too warm while walking. You should also bring moleskin, molefoam, and medical tape (foot repair kit).
