Hunt trophy Dall sheep in the Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories, Canada.
Hunters arrive and depart Ft. Simpson, Northwest Territories via Yellowknife and Edmonton. The trips are 10 day backpack trips including one day each for arrival and departure - 8 days of actual hunting. Clients are transported via helicopters to the area they will hunt.

The outfitter has nearly 10,000 square miles of wilderness to hunt. It’s not uncommon to see 20-30 rams in one hunt. Older age class rams are the goal with the average typically being 10-11 years. Harvested sheep average 36-37 inches with many 40 inch plus rams taken. Rifle hunters have had 100% success and archers average 50-60% success.

These trips are mountain backpack trips that require clients to be in the best shape possible. Older clients have been taken successfully.

Hunts are held from late July to early September. Depending on dates, mountain caribou and mountain goat can also be added after your sheep is down. Cost is $3500 for helicopter transport for caribou and then $3500 kill fee upon harvest. Good numbers of caribou and high scoring heads make this an excellent add-on hunt. Mountain goats are $4000 for transport and then $4000 upon harvest. Goat numbers are very good and harvested goats average 10 years old. Compared to many goat hunts, this one is considered “moderately physical”.

Hunts are 1×1 guided. Two hunters may hunt from the same camp if they request to do so. Each hunter will have their own guide.

10 Day Hunt (8 hunting days) - $21,500. This is an all inclusive price including helicopter transport, license and taxes. Payment schedule is 30% initial deposit, 20% by Dec. 1 and balance due May 15 year of hunt.
