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.

These Idaho Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep hunting trips are the real thing…unmatched landscapes, pack in on horseback, camping out, spot & stalk hunting, experienced guides, outstanding meals and much more. “It’s the whole nine yards.” Rams range in size from 160″ to 180″+. Some true trophies have been taken on this hunt over the years.

*Applications are due the month of April. Contact us now to get on our sheep information and reminder list. Ask us about auction tags!

Big Creek
Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness
No fences, no fancy lodges, no travel by SUV or ATV, nor are there any crowds or cell phones. This is a true mountain man experience and the hunt of a lifetime in an area that spans 340+/- square miles. This country is rich in history and free roaming, non-pressured mule deer abound.

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.
