Dall sheep (Ovis Dalli) are one of the two species of all-white, hoofed large mammals found in Alaska. They are stocky, with amber horns, yellow eyes, and black noses and feet. Only in very few places in Alaska (i.e. Southcentral) does their geographic range overlap with that of other all-white species, the mountain goat. However, sheep prefer drier habitats than those used by goats.
Like goat hunting, sheep hunting tends to be practiced primarily by a few, hardy individuals whose interest is more in the challenge and satisfaction of mountain hunting and the alpine experience than in getting food for the freezer. Dall sheep produce excellent meat but they are relatively small in size and the effort required to retrieve meat from the rugged alpine areas they inhabit can be daunting. Let us help you achieve success on your hunt.
Dall sheep season parallels grizzly bear season from August 10th through September 20th. Permits are available and it is a bear per year unit. This is an exclusive hunting area with limited entry. Hunters can upgrade and shoot both species during the hunt for an additional fee. Please note that this hunt does require a certain level of physical fitness & no fear of heights.
