Did it back in Jan 2020. I can email you the maps we were given but they may have changed. It’s just 3 compartments with 4 in each.. best advice I can give you is get in shape and be prepared for the weather.

Here’s my write up from last season. PM me if you need more info.

Just try and pick the roughest one. Think topography. And get ready to work for them.

I'd love to hunt it but I always hunt solo. Don't have anyone that will put in with me and they require hunters to be in pairs. Don't really understand that. I grew up in CO hunting mulies, elk and bighorns. Can't be any rougher than those hunts. Heck I even did a 14 day mountain goat hunt solo in CO when I finally drew that tag and I got my billy.

Liability.
They’ve had to haul a few folks out. There’s little to no cell service. The guy leading the hunt told us to be prepared to wait, maybe up to 24 hours, before they came looking for you.
I personally had a bad fall out there. It didn’t take me out but could have been a whole lot worse. I have a pretty good scar on my leg 1 year later.

It's not easy. I thought the same, living and hunting in Wyoming for 7yrs, how bad could it be? Well when I drew it you could not camp in the compartments so It was a minimum of 6 miles a day to get to where the sheep were because you had to hike in and out. I think we made it out by 2330hrs coming out with my ram.

BoomerD which dates did you draw? I may be up there during the 3rd hunt and will buy you a cup of coffee as you pass through our ranch.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Better be in shape physically to cover some ground, its a more physical hunt than devils river, we drew a mule deer hunt there last year and the park ranger said almost every year someone on the exotic hunt either gets hurt or lost.

You know what compartment? Pulling anything out of that canyon is an accomplishment in my opinion.
