Stone sheep are often thought of as one of the finest North American trophies. Considering the beautiful country they live in, the physical and mental fortitude it takes to harvest one, and the beauty of their gorgeous grey to brown coloration, not to mention that full curl headgear, it’s hard to imagine a hunt for them not being fulfilling and producing lifelong memories.
There is also a type of sheep, called a Fannin, that is considered a stone sheep for record keeping purposes. This sheep more closely looks like a Dall sheep in coloration, with the exception that they have dark haired areas of the back, shoulders and tail. They are found in the Ogilvie Mountains of the Yukon and occasionally in parts of the Northwest Territories and Alaska.

Stone sheep are typically hunted from early August to the middle of October. The areas they call home are rugged and wild and weather can certainly play a role later in the season. Often, they are hunted as a single species or in combination with mountain caribou, moose, or mountain goat. Timing of the hunt can depend on secondary species that a hunter wishes to harvest and what dates those species are in season. The type of weather a hunter prefers can also be a driving factor when to hold the hunt.
