YUKON HORSEBACK DALLS 10 DAYS ONLY $18,500

Last fall this outfitter hosted 11 sheep hunters and 9 took home rams, including a 41 inch plus ram and one just shy of 40. One unsuccessful hunter was a repeat hunter that had taken a ram here previously and ended up passing looking for a trophy ram. The other unsuccessful hunter was an older gentleman that saw 16 rams, but was unable to hike to them.

This Yukon Territory private concession has a very high density dall sheep population and is one of the least physically demanding when it comes to the terrain, don’t get us wrong it is still sheep hunting, but just not as rugged as most sheep areas.

2014 went 12 for 12, with the best ram going 40 inches.
