YUKON DALL SHEEP HORSEBACK HUNT CHARTER/LICENSES/ROYALTIES/TAX ALL INCLUSIVE $24,000
Last fall this outfit took 7 rams, including a real nice heavy 40 incher. One hunter missed a 40 inch ram and went home empty. Two hunters just weren’t prepared for a sheep hunt. Three more rams were seen that would go 40 inches during the season.
HCU’s Cliff Graham took a ram here in 1997 and a couple years later the area was closed to non-residents for well over a decade. It reopened in 2014 with a new, young outfitter taking 15 rams for 17 hunters, both unsuccessful hunters missed rams. 3 grizzlies were taken, including HCU’s Craig Green’s B&C grizzly.
In 2015 they went 10 for 13 on dalls, including an all time Boone and Crockett record book 42 inch ram, taken by HCU’s Jim Elker. Of the 3 unsuccessful hunters 2 missed and 1 passed then the weather changed with an early snow and he never had another opportunity.
