Dall Sheep & Brown/Grizzly Bear Combination Hunts
Be sure to check our “Specials” page (click the flashing red button to the left) for information on Cancellations and Discounted hunts!
We also offer Moose & Brown Bear Combinations. Visit the middle of our Moose Hunts page to check these out.
Dall Sheep and Brown/Grizzly Bears make an excellent combination hunt. We conduct most of our sheep & brown or grizzly combinations in my “Sole Use Guide Concession” in Denali Preserve. Black bear, wolf and wolverine are also available.
The western half of my concession includes some fantastic Dall Sheep hunting areas and some great salmon streams and denning areas for hunting Brown/Grizzly Bears in the fall. Prior to 2008, these areas were closed to guided non resident hunters. I’m limited to a total of 13 clients per year in this concession area.
Most of our hunts are 11 day single species hunts for either dall sheep or brown/grizzly bear. Because sheep and bear hunts overlap to a large extent, we try to provide second specie add-ons for roughly half price on a trophy fee basis to clients who are interested, and when time, weather and resources allow.
For the serious hunter who wants a better chance at both species and/or increased trophy size, we can also offer a 14 day hunt in most cases. Also, most of my concession has a two brown bear per year bag limit. This combination might also interest the serious brown/grizzly hunter who would like to take two bears.

NOTE: A person who has been airborne may not take or assist in taking big game until after 3:00 a.m. following the day in which the flight occurred. For this reason, Clients should try to arrive a day or two early and leave a day or two later than actual trip dates.

We will gladly assist you in making arrangements and reservations, and can sell you the tags ourselves.
INCIDENTAL SPECIES: Black Bear, wolf and wolverine can be hunted on an incidental basis contingent upon open seasons. Incidental” means that we don’t move to or specifically hunt for them, but if you run across one and can take it without messing up your dall sheep or brown/grizzly bear hunt, you can. You must purchase any necessary tags in advance. We charge a $1000.00 trophy fee for an incidental black bear, and there is no additional charge for an incidental wolf or wolverine. Wolf tags aren’t required by non residents in my concession area. A black bear tag will work for either black bear or wolverine.
