GAME DESCRIPTION
Major Game Animals Taken: Sheep, Stone - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size: 47 inches, 174 B&C Gross
Game Sought But Not Taken:
Game Condition Comments: I witnessed a lot of sheep in an old age class, the previous owner of the concession was from Germany, and their interest and focus was on Moose and Caribou as is the norm with the European Market - therefore the sheep have been largely un-hunted and some even die of old age. I did see a good number of caribou and several moose in the trophy class size - although while I was there it was in August and all of them were in velvet. The fishing was also extremely good, for anyone interested in combining that with a hunt, I have never seen the trophy class of lake trout in the numbers that exist there.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: Honestly, there were none! Not even one little small one I could point a finger at.
Highlights of Hunt: Obviously taking one of the largest Stone Sheep in history but the overall experience, the entire staff actually cared if you were having a good time or not, spending time with Mark and Peter, listening to their stories of the past, plans for the future and the overall camaraderie.
Equipment Recommendations: Yes early hunts I would bring bug dope for lower elevations, higher elevation hunts sun screen and knee pads for hunting sheep, I use the ones made by arc teryx, a good sleeping bag, layered clothing and water proof hiking boots, camp shoes any of your favorite fishing lures or gear if you want to use your own. Extra film for camera as you will want to take more pictures than on a normal hunt due to the scenery activities. I always take my own sat phone.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? Absolutely, as a matter of fact I have told many about it already as it appears to be due to the previous owners a sleeper in many ways for real trophy animals especially the sheep. The owners that run this operation do so for all the right reasons. They love what they do, it is a family run operation, they constantly look for ways to improve the operation and strive for customer satisfaction- they pay attention to the littlest details and logistics, many of the things that make ones experience a Great one rather than a good one. Their personalities are somewhat contagious also - they're just plain ole good folks and you feel like you're with friends rather than a paid trip.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
In all honesty it was  ridiculously good, I was treated like a king by everyone from the owners Mark Parsons and Peter Ludwig down to the camp jack and wranglers. We ate steaks, salads, veggies, everything you expect to not see until you get back from the wilderness it was both there and well prepared, all meals were exceptional. The equipment was mostly new other than some of the saddles and pack gear but all was in repair and in good working order, new boats, motors etc. I did not find anything broke down or not in working condition. The guiding was indeed a stand out, Both Mark and Peter guided me, they have both been in the business most of their lives, Peter has guided over 100 successful sheep hunts - that's experience! The trophy care was well thought out and prepared properly, having been involved in a Taxidermy business for many years I am well aware of the necessary care - Pete himself did all the prepping, salting, turning etc. I did help because he let me. He knew exactly what he was doing. The airline after arriving in Whitehorse that they use is a float plane service out of the lake there - they were very professional and courteous and was I thought reasonably priced.
