Holy cow! I had no idea a sheep hunt costs what they do. I just searched some out for Canada and saw a $30,000 price tag! That's freaking crazy!

Man, if I was going to spend that kind of money I would save up a few more pennies and go to the Argali Mountains and get the worlds biggest big horn.

YouTube - Argali sheep

$30,000+ for one hunt - ouch. That's a lot of money. I hope you get to hunt them and have the hunt of a lifetime and come away with a trophy you'll never forget.

Good lord, those are huge! You know, that would be pretty awesome to go over there and get one, but to tell you the truth I don't have any desire to go to that part of the world. I'm scared I might not come back alive...
I guess I'm going to start a sheep hunting fund and see what happens. I want one so bad and it hurts to think that it may never happen! It's kind of like looking at a supermodel, it's hard to accept that you'll probably live your life without that experience!

Re: How would an Alabamian go about killing a sheep?

i got a question about draw odds as well, what are junior draw odds like? im under 18 for the next two seasons and want to try my luck. Have searched online but cant seem to find them anywhere.

Those sheep in the Argali mountains are amazing! but i would rather stay out of that part of the world for now.

Re: How would an Alabamian go about killing a sheep?

When I drew my sheep tag back in 89 the odds were about 1 in 125. It's typically about 1-2% chance of drawing but if you figure in bonus points, you're less likely when you first start applying. No breaks for youth sheep drawings in MT as far as I know. There are some youth districts for deer and elk, but nothing special for sheep.

Re: How would an Alabamian go about killing a sheep?

Just so I can put things into perspective in my own mind, how many tags are awarded nationally...I know each state does there own but, is it like 100 or 1000 or 10,000. I mean what's the number of hunters that draw a tag versus what's the total pool number? Anyone?

Re: How would an Alabamian go about killing a sheep?

Does it have to be a bighorn sheep? Would an aoudad, aka Barbary Bighorn, work? I live in Alabama right now, too, but am originally from Texas, where the aoudad is a nuisance that they are trying to eradicate. For $30,000 you could buy yourself 30-100 acres of land in Texas where aoudads roam. The non-resident 5 day hunting permit for aoudad is $48.
