Well my trip started in Whitehorse Yukon where we flew 2 1/2 hours North to our Goz Lake base camp. We then loaded up our horses and rode for 2 days to our spike camp. Saw several Caribou and a sow grizzly and cub on the way.
We rode up on a young male Grizzly on out 1st day of hunting! Luckily we ran the other way. We hunted several drainages for a couple days only spotting a few small rams and ewes but LOTS of Caribou bulls. On day 3 of the 10 day hunt we found a SHOOTER bull caribou only a mile from spike camp. After a short climb/stalk I dropped him at 100 yards with my Browning A Bolt 30-06. Day 4 found us in a HUGE drainage 12 miles from spike camp. We saw 7 rams that day...all small...several were 3/4 curl 6-7 year olds and one full curl but my guide said he was young and small. We were walking the horses down a step drainage around 8:30pm when we spotted this ram climbing the mountain above us. We ran about 200 yards up the mountain to a large rock to get a better look. Shoot my guide said...330 yards up hill. The 165gr. Nosler Partition did the job. After many pictures and butchering we made it back to camp at 2:45am the next day. We were lucky to tag out because the next 2 days we were weathered in with wind,rain and LOTS of fog. We saw a dozen or more sheep and Caribou bulls on our 2 day ride back to base camp. It was a "TRIP OF A LIFETIME.' The Yukon is the most AWESOME sight I have ever seen. HUGE breath taking mountains and AWESOME hunting! I can't wait to return. They say you NEVER really leave the Yukon....now I know why. Anyone looking for a first class Dall sheep hunt check out Chris's opertation at http://WWW.WIDRIG.YK.CA. You won't be disappointed!
There is one tip I have learned over the years in hunting whitetails in late season snow. Do not overlook soybeans left standing on the edges of fence rows, woods, creeks, buildings wherever it might be, this is where the deer will be while the food lasts during late season. December/January will pull deer in from some distance away to feed on the easy to get to food.
I killed one of my nicest bucks off of a very small patch of soybeans that was left after rains created a...
