Bighorn Sheep Hunts in the West Elk Wilderness
 
West Elk Wilderness Bighorn Sheep Hunts The Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep inhabits some of the most remote, extremely demanding, and spectacular regions of western North America. Bighorns are considered by many to be the most graceful and majestic of all big game animals, and they personify the spirit and ruggedness of the wilderness. Sheep make their homes in the highest mountain cliff faces and scrambling talus slopes, at altitudes that cause most hunters to gasp for air. Few creatures can survive where they thrive, but the bighorn is the master of these high places. They are very tough to pursue due to their amazing eyesight and uncanny ability to perceive danger.

Bighorn Sheep Hunting with Tenderfoot Outfitters GunnisonMost early sheep hunting expeditions were done on horseback, the most efficient way to access the rough ram country in the high spines of the Rocky Mountains, and today’s hunts remain quite the same. These hunts take place from our Castle Creek Camp located at 10,000 foot elevation where we use our quality mountain trail horses to get to the remote, high altitude home of the sheep.

It’s imperative to be in sheep shape, but the truth is no matter how good of shape you’re in, the terrain and altitude is going to kick your butt. Being in the best shape you can be will make the hunt less painful and more enjoyable. Buy the best gear you can afford, especially boots and optics. Know your weapon and be proficient with it, you may not get a second opportunity.

One archery and three rifle ram tags are available thru the draw in GMU S54 and are obtainable by Colorado residents only.

A big horn sheep hunt is only a dream for most hunters, but for those lucky enough to draw one of these coveted tags the logistics and challenges of the hunt can be overwhelming....

We can help you access the area and be successful
on this once in a lifetime hunt…
