Our trophy Dall Sheep hunts in the Central Brooks Range run from August 10th to 19th, or from August 21st to 30th. This hunt has very limited openings. Guided Fly out fishing is available for lake trout, sheefish, arctic char, dolly varden, & pike. Also grizzly bears and black bears are available on a trophy fee basis.
Once landing in Bettles, you will be met by a Mountain Monarchs team member and brought to our Lodge in town, the "Ram Hole". From here you will repack your gear, do the necessary paperwork, shoot your rifle, and then get ready to fly out to your base camp. If weather allows you may fly out to base camp the same day you arrive to Bettles or you may wait until the next day.
Please Note: This sheep hunt is extremely strenuous. In order to be successful, you are advised to train and arrive in top physical condition. You may be required to carry a pack 50-70 lbs. If you require a packer to accompany your hunt, one can be provided for $350/day.
From Bettles you will be flown out to a base camp in close proximity to where trophy rams have been located. There we will set up a camp consisting of either wall tents or bomb shelter style tents. Home cooked meals around or over the camp fire in the old traditional way. Heat, tables, chairs, plenty of food, and enough creature comforts to enjoy without losing the feel of being in the mountains. Good grayling fishing and gold panning is usually available near camp.
We utilize lightweight expedition-grade backpack tents. You will, in most cases, share this tent with your guide. Spike camps consist of Jet Boil Stoves, freeze dried food, sleeping bags and pads along with a space blanket, your rifle and basic personal gear.
You will need a frame pack; or make prior arrangements with us to hire a packer. Cost of a packer is $350 per day.
Your baggage should be packed in small soft duffle bags. Large duffle bags and suitcases will remain in Bettles. The scheduled village flights generally charge $1.80/lb. for anything over 40 lbs. It is best to ship your heavier gear to us in advance.
