Dall sheep hunts in Alaska organised by the partners of Kodiak Guide Service
Dates: August 10-19, 2019 and August 21-30, 2019
Price for Dall sheep hunt is $20,000
Unlike many other backpack Sheep hunts, Kodiak Guide Service’s partners access the mountains in a company owned light aircraft on tundra tires, which means when you start your hunt, you’re already in Sheep country! Even so, you’re sure to earn your trophy on this rugged 1X1, 10 day backpack hunt. We have years of experience hunting and flying this area, so if you come in good shape, you won’t go home disappointed!
The Brooks Range is one of few remaining over-the-counter Sheep tags available to Non- Resident hunters in Alaska, which means you don’t have to wait until you win the draw to come on this Sheep hunt!!
Kodiak Guide Service’s partners hunt the Southern Slopes of the Brooks Range, where Grizzlies are common, and can be harvested as a secondary animal incidentally during a hunt, or targeted after a hunter is successful. A trophy fee will be charged for Grizzly Bears only if one is harvested in addition to a Sheep.
Trophy Fee Outline
Hunters are encouraged to bring extra tags, as secondary animals are available as an opportunity harvest on any of our hunts. Some hunters are lucky enough to harvest two or three species during a ten day hunt. Trophy fees will be charged only for animals that are harvestedin addition to the hunters primary target species. A wounded animal counts against a hunters bag limit, and incurs a trophy fee weather recovered or not, so please shoot straight!!! Loved ones or friends are welcome to accompany hunters on their trip for an additional cost. An “observer fee” will be charged for each extra person who accompanies the hunter. If observers bring the appropriate licenses and tags, arrangements can be made ahead of time to allow observers to harvest animals on a trophy fee basis.
Grizzly Bear: $5,000
Black Bear: $2,500
Observer Fee: $2,500
