Many believe the wild sheep to be the pinnacle of North American hunting. Dall Sheep inhabit high alpine mountains and are found throughout all the major ranges of Alaska. “The great white sheep of the north” is what many dream of taking when they come to Alaska.
Our season runs from August 10th to September 20th with most rams being taken on their summer range throughout August. Rams harvested at DRO are 8 – 10 years old, and average 36” – 38” length. Most sheep hunts are done “bivy style” from minimal backpack camps accessed by airplane and ATV from the lodge. The remote portions of the Alaska Range have historically produced several rams each year over 40” length.
Hunting is spot and stalk with significant time spent glassing. Our guides are well equipped, high energy, and knowledgeable when it comes to judging sheep. Hunters must be in good physical shape for a sheep hunt, as this can be very physically demanding. DRO will provide a gear list to ensure you come fully prepared with the proper equipment and expectations to make your hunt successful and enjoyable.
