What outfitter(s) offer Desert Bighorn sheep hunts? What is included not included with the pricing? I understand Desert Bighorn sheep are limited in available hunting opportunities regulated by TPWD.

Thanks Deans

You’ll be looking at anywhere from $40,000 (great price on a cancellation hunt) to $100,000. Almost all of them will be all inclusive once you arrive at Camp. Some will literally be a Camp and some can be a bit more luxurious.

It will never happen, but I am curious how people pay for hunts like that? Do they write a check? Cash? Bank to Bank? Credit Card? How much before the hunt is needed for a deposit, and how to you sleep at night sending huge sums to Mexico months before going there?

There probably isn’t a bigger difference between two things than there is between a desert bighorn and one of those “hunts”

A similar “Texas sheep” to a mature 8 year old desert would most certainly be around 10% of the cost. There are several Texas ranches with 40 inch Urails, Stumbergs, and crosses that will range in the 7500-10,000 range. These are great hunts and have done several, but the idea of the hunt and exclusiveness of a bighorn is unmatched. The elite club.

To answer your question: most out of the country trips have a liaison/planner in the states. In my experience I have merely transferred funds to a US bank. Not to scary if you do your homework.

The cost is all relative. 20 years ago, the thought of spending more than $1,000 on an animal was crazy. Sheep are at the pentacle of all of it (in my opinion) with some argyle sheep hunts running $150,000. A desert is on my list and 3-4 years out (unless I draw) of pure saving and planning. How deep is your passion?

A while back there was a post on the THF for Desert Bighorn x Mouflon rams that were 6/8 bighorn as I recall. Sheephunter harvested one that looked remarkably like a desert bighorn (his pictures so I will not post here). Robert Stuart (KIMBER1911) was the outfitter.
