    Dall Sheep Alaska outfitter

    Looking for a good affordable Dall sheep hunt in Alaska. The prices seem to go up and down like a roller coaster. Most places say they average 36" Ram and I would be happy with that. Have a buddy that would like to do a hunt to so we need to find a place we can start saving for. I know I'll probably never get a lower 48 big horn tag and I don't think the Dall would be a bad conciliation prize at all. Anyone have any experience good or bad with outfitters in Alaska?

    Draw a Tok Management Tag or Chugach tag then book an outfitter like Rick French that uses horses.

    Definitely a relative term, I would say relative to a stone sheep hunt, lol. The cost is getting out of cintrol

    Ha ha SJ...that's okay. I am kinda getting used to being one of the "older" guys...though I'm still in my 40's...just barely.

    Booked my stone hunt in 1973! $1750 for a 14-day, horseback hunt. I'm sure some of you were in diapers or maybe only a gleam in your father's eyes. FYI - It was just as hard to justify paying that amount of money (seemed huge at the time) back then as it is to spend $17,500 on a hunt today.

    If I was looking for a good quality dall hunt today for as low a cost as possible, I would give Atchenson's - Hunting Consultants, in Butte, Montana a call. Discuss your financial situation and perhaps get on their cancellation list.

    Here is a picture of my 10-year old stone ram taken near Muncho Lake, B.C. in September, 1973. I am very happy I bit the bullet and paid the price back then.
