Sheep Mountain Outfitters is a North Eastern Oregon based outfitting business located in the heart of big game hunting paradise. We spend a significant amount of time in the famed “Hells Canyon Recreational Area” which is North America’s deepest river gorge. We are a diverse group of hard-core hunters specializing in sheep, mountain goats, mule deer, elk and antelope. We pride ourselves on being prepared and providing successful hunts for all 5 big game species. We strive for nothing less than 100% success and we provide a full-service experience.
One of the keys to our success is preseason scouting. We take pride in knowing every inch of our hunting areas/units and we feel it’s extremely critical to your success. Consistent trophy success is obtained by complete preparation. Our hunts take place on both private and public lands as we operate under long term private land leases and special use permits provided by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and US Forest Service (FS). Hunting multiple areas within Oregon and Idaho provides a diversified landscape, which also allows us to tailor hunts for each hunter’s ability. We limit the number of clients on all of our hunts in order to control the quality of each experience. In addition, our private hunting leases are on a long-term basis which allows us to control predators and monitor the annual harvest ratios for each species. As a result of our management practices, we have an influence on the age class of our animals.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) manages wildlife units with a controlled hunt draw system. Oregon includes a preference point system for deer, elk and antelope. A good portion of our premium hunts take several years to draw and, in most cases, are “once in a lifetime” tags. The responsibility of providing “once in a lifetime” hunts is what drives us. Our goal is to maximize the potential of each tag and strive for top end trophy success. We have combined our passion for harvesting the biggest / most mature animals possible with our drive to be the best in our business. With those goals guiding us, we treat every hunt as if it were our own and do everything possible to turn the odds of success in each hunter’s favor.
Depending on the species, we have knowledge and desires to hunt the following units:
Snake River, Keating, Chesnimnus, Wenaha, Mt. Emily, Walla Walla, Ukiah, Heppner, Fossil, Columbia Basin, John Day River, Deschutes, Steens, South Central, E,Beatys Butte, Hat Point, South Snake, Elkhorns and Strawberries.
We are licensed, bonded and insured. Our Oregon Outfitter License number is 2267.
