The undisputed monarchs of the Rocky Mountains, Bighorn Sheep are among the most sought after trophies in the world. Total Outdoor Adventures has two guide areas, one in BC and one in Alberta. In BC our guiding territory holds two distinct sheep herds with stable populations. Due to the full curl restriction on rams the hunter must understand that they may see a number of rams that are not legal. A full curl Bighorn ram is a prestigious trophy as legal rams are smart, wary and dwell at high elevations in rugged terrain. Hunter’s must prepare themselves physically and mentally for what is believed to be one of the most challenging yet rewarding hunts in North America. Be prepared to hike into remote basins where you may camp for several nights and you will be spending many hours glassing/spotting for this illusive trophy so good optics are a necessity. Typical rams harvested in this area range from 160″ to 180″ class. Our British Columbia Bighorn Sheep hunts are 9 days long and we recommend you hunt Mountain Goat as well.
In Alberta we have 4 tags in the Kakwa region west of Grande Prairie on the BC/AB border. The country is big and so are the rams, this area holds plenty of resident sheep. It is big country where most of your time will be spent behind a spotting scope, main camp is a wall tent camp in the bottom of the drainage. From there we pack out via quads and back pack and stay in Hillenberg tents. Bighorn hunting requires you to be in great physical shape as well as keeping a positive mindset if the hunting is slow or the weather is bad. This is your best bet to get a ram. In Alberta rams to be legal must be 4/5th curl, thus allowing a heavy broomed off ram to be legal. Since of this regulation success in Alberta for sheep is better then BC. Our guides are in this area preparing and spotting August 1st allowing our clients the best opportunity found. What puts us at one of the top of sheep outfitters in Alberta is that we allow our clients to come back after their scheduled hunt dates incase they weren’t successful. Our Alberta Bighorn Sheep hunts are a 12 day hunt, the season starts Sept 1st and ends Oct 15th. Rams taken out of our area are in the 160” to 180”+ range.
Tags are limited and advance booking is required. Bighorn hunts are structured on a trophy fee basis with optional tags available. Join Total Outdoor Adventures on a quest for the ultimate North American trophy, the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Ram!
