Known for its old, heavy based rams, the Blackstone area has excellent potential for harvesting the trophy of a lifetime. Mineral licks throughout the region help contribute to exceptional horn growth, producing several award winning rams over the years. We have a healthy population of both Dall and Fannin sheep, with a wide range of colouring. Some of the Fannins are quite dark, having the appearance of a true Stone sheep, a common trait in the Blackstone area. In the last few years about 75% of the rams taken have been Fannin. We strive to take the oldest rams possible, whether they be heavy and broomed, or a long and wide flaring ram. In any case, our average age over the years has been at the 10 year mark, with an average horn length of 37 inches. Whether this is your first sheep hunt or you’re working on a collection, you can be assured that we will try our best to see that you have a chance at a great ram.
We offer 4 sheep hunts, each lasting 10 days. This season starts August 1 in temperatures from 60 – 80 degrees F. By mid-September the temperatures are in the 40 – 50 degrees F range. We rotate our sheep hunting regions on a 2-4 year rotation, ensuring our hunters have a chance at seeing some good old rams. Most hunters take a ram by day 5 or 6, leaving time to hunt another species if they so choose. Our success rate on our sheep hunts has been in the 90-95% range from year to year.
