SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: Too short - could have stayed a couple more more weeks just to soak it all in.
Highlights of Hunt: Seeing a wolf attempt to catch a Dall sheep. Watching my guide (Matt Dickson) go up and down mountains like they were nothing (wish I was young again). Eating sheep ribs cooked over an open fire in the Yukon mountains.
Equipment Recommendations: Good boots - maybe a hard hat and goggles for some of the overgrown horse trails (just kidding - but some of the trails are pretty tough - wrecked a couple of pairs of eyeglasses).
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? Yes
Why? High adventure, great people, a real hunt. Dave Dickson hates it if someone shoots a small or young ram - there is a high emphasis on ethical, fair chase, big ram hunting.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Dave and Teena really want their hunters to experience the Yukon in all of its beauty - they are not a high volume operation. Dave is the real deal - he is a bush man and really knows the backcountry and horses. This is a traditional hunt. Like all sheep hunting, you can always be in better shape. Teena and Dave treat you like family.

I cannot stress how important being in shape is and be ready to horseback ride because you are going to ride and you are going to climb. Matt Dickson my guide and Kirk my Wrangler were absolutely the best. Matt knows his stuff and I hope to hunt with him again.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
My Dall sheep hunt is one of my most memorable adventures in my life. I never rode so much on horseback. We rode on the average of 6 to 8 hours a day during our 12-day hunt and by the 12th day, I became a pretty good cowboy and started enjoying it. Riding on horseback was not exactly that much fun but I guess it beat walking. Camping in the true wilderness of the Yukon might not be as comfortable as a tented African Safari hunt, but at the end, I felt it was all worth it especially when my dall sheep was harvested on the eighth day. My outfitter, David, was a hard hunter. Sometimes, we did not get back to camp late till 10:00 pm or 11:00 pm. After I shot my sheep, we kept on looking for moose and black bear. Too bad, I did not get any other trophy except my Dall sheep. This is a fantastic hunt with so much satisfaction at the end. Some hunters believe hunting on horseback, hiking the untouched wild trail and climbing the steep slopes that are sometimes covered with snow and sometimes covered with loose rock is how true hunting should be conducted.

Problems of Hunt: None. Physically demanding. Must be in top shape for bow but easy for rifle.
Highlights of Hunt: Multiple moose stalks. Bull moose bluff charge to within several feet (bow hunt).
Equipment Recommendations: Good quilt camo for bowhunting. Gators for October hunt. Good hiking boots for Tundra.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? I would absolutely recommend the hunt. The best hunt in several years. Outfitter treated me like royalty.
