True Magnum's "Find Your Dream Hunt" Series
Northwest Territories Dall Sheep Hunt
Day 1 Arrival: Your first morning at base camp is magical, full of wonder and unforgettable. The anticipation for the hunt is as high as it can be.
Day 1.1: Horses are not used on many Dall Sheep hunts these days, but it’s the most romantic way to hunt them for those reasonably accustomed to riding.
Day 1.2: Expect to enjoy extra long hunting days, extremely short nights and beautiful northern lights.
Day 2: Looking over expansive sheep country for white sheep is not as daunting as with some other sheep. The country in NWT is mild and the sheep stand out well.
Day 3: The horses cannot go everywhere, so be prepared for daily stalks up the mountain.
Day 4: An NWT white sheep hunt combines well with mountain caribou, and you will see plenty. A crack at a wolf is also a possibility.
Day 5: When you find the ram you want, you’ll know it.
Day 5.1: NWT has lots of rams, but not many 40 inchers like this. Expect high success, reasonable weather for that far north and an 8+ year old ram.
Day 6.1: You’ll enjoy sheep ribs on the fire the evening after success and before the long pack home.
Day 6: Packing out from a hunt as epic as a white sheep hunt is bittersweet. Not many of a man’s days are spent so spectacularly. If this is your dream hunt, give us a call!
