California Bighorn Hunts
We have two very different sheep hunts to fit your budget and your physical ability.
We conduct a horseback hunt in the South Chilcotin Mountains at elevations between 6,500 and 9,500 feet. This is a horseback nomadic type of hunt where we take our tent camps with us with a minimum of luxury, as we travel and hunt the mountain ridge tops and valley basins. It is necessary to have the physical ability to climb 1,500 to 2,000 vertical feet per day. This hunt can be booked as a ten, fourteen, or twenty-one day hunt. It is common for clients to include Mountain Mule Deer, Black Bear, and sometimes Moose on this particular hunt.
The second Sheep hunt, along the desert country of the famous Fraser River, is a less physical hunt and is what we refer to as the platinum package of Sheep hunts. It is conducted at elevations between 1,500 and 3,000 feet. This hunt requires minimum physical ability as compared to other Sheep hunting, and it generally takes less than a week to harvest an animal. This area holds the reputation of being home to the number one, two, and three all-time record book California Bighorn Sheep.
Remember, records are meant to be broken. An individual can enjoy the comforts of accommodation at our main lodge with all the amenities of home during this hunt. In some cases, this will require up to a two hour drive. The deciding factor is how far out from the main lodge we are hunting at the time. The alternative is staying at a comfortable cabin right in the heart of the sheep hunting where we have several times spotted our trophies right from the camp. The accommodation at our main lodge is a very comfortable atmosphere to bring a non-hunting companion.
