In 2014 they had 21 hunters tag 19 rams, including 2 archers and one took the new #4 archery dall sheep all time for Pope and Young. One archer and one rifle hunter were unsuccessful.
This is a small family operation that has exclusive guiding rights to over 7,000 square miles. The outfitter rotates his sheep camps to prevent over hunting pressure and this provides more mature full curl rams. There has never been any resident pressure of any kind in this area. He also has an elaborate base camp including a hydroelectric plant that produces power for all the comforts of home along with email. Most hunters tag out early and upon return to base camp enjoy some fantastic lake trout and grayling fishing just outside the cabin door.
Hunts start July 15 and run to early September. 10 day backpack hunts guided 1×1 are $24,000 and 12 day horseback hunts are $25,500 plus licenses, preservation fund of $100 and 2 1/2 percent taxes. Mountain caribou can be taken for a $5,000 trophy fee and last fall success was again 100 percent.
He also offers a 12 day backpack combination hunt with a base price of $13,500 and trophy fees of $11,500 for sheep, $11,500 for moose and $5,000 for caribou on August 28 to September 8.
