The Hunting Report Roundup brings you from-the-field hunter reports on exciting hunting opportunities around the world. This week we bring you Dall sheep in the high mountains and bongo in the low jungles, and more great reports. Our database is growing all the time, and we want to share all of our subscribers’ latest adventures with you. From the Arctic tundra to the Land Down Under, we put thousands of outfitter reviews at your fingertips! Click the hyperlinked reports below to read more! All reports are chosen strictly for the value of their comments in helping you choose a hunt that’s right for you.


Harold Smith took his Dall ram in Alaska.

The Sheep(s) of the Steeps.  With all the bears and wolves around, is it any wonder Dall sheep have taken to living where they can keep a good lookout? Fortunately the hunter has optics on his side. Alaska Master Guide Mike McCann clearly puts his clients near the top of the food chain on sheep/wolf combo hunts. “The Dall sheep were everywhere, but finding that big old ram takes time and patience,” says Harold Smith (9610), who hunted with McCann. “Also took a black wolf and came close on exciting grizzly stalks. Mike is a true ‘mountain man.’”  Peter Hunt (9274) also scored a combo. “We looked over 100 sheep before I took a big, broomed-off 11-year-old ram and a black wolf. Mike McCann runs a very good operation with a talented staff who likes to have fun.” If you take a grizzly/wolf/sheep combo with McCann, you’ll really be at the top of the pile in Alaska.

Speaking of combo hunts, Robert Muckleroy (
8822) was choosy about his ram and still had time to get a big grizzly bear, hunting with Chad Smith of Mervyn's Yukon Outfitters. “I passed up one great ram to get one that was really special, a beautiful 10-year-old ram (longest horn 39 ¾ inches). Plus, I got a big bear that won't be killing sheep anymore. Nothing to disappoint with this outfitter.”

Harold Meyers (
9292) scored his Dall sheep in the Yukon with Dave Dickson of Dickson Outfitters. “I've hunted with Dave several times for several species, and each time has been flawless in every detail. Even weather-days were enjoyable, and the fishing's excellent.” Mark Shears (9563) says he has found a great sheep guide in Kelly Wiebe of Nahanni Butte Outfitters in British Columbia. “Wiebe was voted Guide of the Year by the National Wild Sheep Convention, with good reason. This is an excellent outfit, too, and the sheep were in great shape.”

Richard Haykel (
9311) struck out on Dall sheep, but still has rave reviews for Moon Lake Outfitters and guide Harro Obst in the Yukon. “Excellent trophy potential here. I would recommend this outfit to anyone looking for a mountain hunt, and I'm already coming back next year with friends.”


Braulio Romero shot this 31.5-inch bongo in CAR.

Bingo Bongo. PHs who specialize in bongo hunting inspire a certain reverence in hunters, no doubt because anyone who can spend weeks slogging through an African jungle must have some admirable qualities. 

Braulio Romero (
9094) gave due praise to PH Christophe Morio of Central African Wildlife Adventures. “Morio is one of the most experienced guides in CAR, especially when it comes to bongo, and he’s tough.” Romero came away with a 31.5-inch bongo. “Much of the game was scarce, but great quality. I got to watch a herd of 18 bongo from a machan.” With all the humidity and temps over 100, CAR can be heaven and hell for bongo hunters. As Pemble Davis (9041) puts it, “This ain’t for sissies.” He saw 32 bongo, but no males, on his hunt with Christophe Morio. “Definitely a trip for hunters with several Africa trips under their belt.” Also in CAR, Bob Merkley (9735) had a great bongo experience with Safari Bongo. “Hunting with PH Jacques Lemaux is a treat. This man had probably hunted more bongo than anyone. Success will come only from long walks, tracking and stalking. We traveled over 20 miles a day.”

“Forest hunting is a totally different ball game,” says Mark Jones (
9742) of hunting with Northern Operations Africa PH Jacques Meyer in Cameroon. It paid off for him with a 29 3/8-inch bongo. “There are lots of bongo, but the foliage makes them tough to see. Meyer never let up the entire hunt, working incredibly hard to get me a mature bongo and a dwarf forest buffalo. This is one of the most difficult and rewarding safaris of all.”

And there’s bongo in the Congo, too. “No one could have worked harder than my PH Andre Van Deventer. Saw 28 different bongo in 20 days, all from the ground in daylight,” says T.D. Kelsey (
9713), who hunted with Congo Hunting Safaris. “Lots of game for a forest hunt.” Almost all of our hunters say the same thing: bongo hunting is a tough game, and not for neophytes. Still, you've got to start sometime—just remember that it's a jungle out there.


Doc Southward hunted this kudu in Namibia.

A little of everything. Hunting Report subscribers are the most adventurous and well-travelled group of folks in the hunting world, and we are here to cover all of the adventure. Here’s a roundup of some recent reports that you might have missed...

Here’s a rare Zimbabwe bow hunt from Antoine Spillman (
9723), who went after buffalo with PH Howard Hunter of Richard Cooke Safaris. “I chose to go in early to get the vegetation cover (good for bow), but next time I will wait so the game concentrates more around the water. I spent my time going for the big bull, but there was plenty of other game around. Cooke and Hunter are real hunters, all hard work and preparation.”

We’re always on the lookout for great, straightforward plains game hunts. Doc Southward (
9671) suggests Pro-Guiding and Hunting Safaris in Namibia. “I got to live my dream African safari in a classic tent camp. PH John Wamback is a seasoned pro, and an encyclopedia of game, guns, botany, ornithology and hunting in general. Will be back ASAP.” Southward took zebra, kudu and hartebeest.

Todd Dunaway (
9740) sent in a rich report on a fall mountain goat hunt with Clint Larson of Kispiox Valley Outfitters in British Columbia. This hunt included watching a friend anchor a goat from 700-plus yards and shooting a goat that came to rest only inches from a 1,000-foot cliff. “Great area, great guides.” Dunaway also reports “eating enough blueberries to turn blue.”

Going soft at sea level? Get your Hypoxico brand acclimatization tent and start practicing for the thin air. John Teeter (
9629) spent five weeks in his tent prior to heading to Nepal for blue sheep. Getting his sheep involved “near vertical climbing” to 15,000 feet. “It was great being with the sherpas and guides in the spectacular Himalayas for the best mountain hunt I’ve ever taken.” How did Teeter deal with the altitude? “I took diamox and slept,” he says.
