Our Alberta sheep area is located 100 miles west of Grand Prairie Alberta in the Kakwa Wilderness. This is northern most range for Bighorn Sheep in North America and also some of the most remote being right on the continental divide. According to Alberta regulations outfitters are not allowed to have any permanent structures in this area so all camps are wall tents and alpine mountaineer tents. This is a true wilderness Rocky Mountain Bighorn hunt.
Our Alberta Bighorn hunts are 12 full days in the Rocky Mountains of the Kakwa Wilderness. Sheep hunts are challenging both physically and mentally as many hours glassing are typically required to locate rams. This sheep area is very remote and the use of horses is limited due to muskeg in lower elevations. We mostly use 4wd atv’s to access glassing areas, trailheads and base camps. Once a plan is in place we then set out on foot into basins and valleys in search of rams if none have been spotted from the glassing areas. Numerous nights on the mountain is a must and prevailing winds can be relentless here on the continental divide so tent camps are situated in timbered gullies and basins for better shelter. Rams curl restriction here is of 4/5 which is slightly more than the 3/4 currestriction. As a result average ram scores range from 160-180 class.
