If you’re after your North American Sheep Slam, you’re probably starting to consider desert sheep hunting Mexico. We work with an American outfitter who has several prime sheep ranches leased in Sonora, Mexico. These ranches have thousands and thousands of acres of perfect free-range, fair chase desert sheep habitat and great genetics. There is also a high fence option, if that’s what you prefer. Our clients take big rams every year on these ranches.

Look no further if you need a Desert Bighorn sheep to finish your Grand Slam or if you simply wish to hunt one of the hardest trophies to come by in North America. When you’re ready to start looking at options, let us know.

Choosing the right outfitter in Mexico is imperative!

We have spent a lot of time, money and effort vetting outfitters year after year to keep up with what is going on South of the border. Mexico can be politically volatile and things change from year to year, but good outfitters are nimble. Bad outfitters come and go.

The Mexico hunts we offer are through outfitters who have continued to stayed consistent, providing our hunters with excellent hunts. Please DO NOT book with an outfitter without consulting us first. Hunting in Mexico can be a disaster or it can be the best hunt of your life. Let us help you book with a proven outfitter who will deliver.

Sonora, Mexico has Guaranteed Sheep Tags on Well Managed Ranches

Our outfitters have to submit a biological survey to game and fish officials every season as part of the process. Mexican officials then issue tags based on the results. Based on these surveys, they recieve very limited tags on a per-ranch basis. Because of this system, trophy quality remains high and you can expect to be hunting mature, seven year old and older rams that will go 155-170+ inches.

The Season for Desert Sheep Hunting Mexico

The Sonora, Mexico Sheep hunting Season is December thru March, but best time to hunt is January. That said, hunting is good the rest of the season as well, you just might have to hunt a little harder.

That said, you do have the option of killing your ram on high fenced properties. Our outfitters have access to a few high fenced ranges that are 1,000 up to 5,000 acres. These rams range from 170 up to 190 and the price will depend on the size of the trophy. You’ll stay in ranch houses with very good accommodations.

Glassing for Desert Bighorn sheep in Mexico.

Physical Preparation for a Desert Sheep Hunt in Mexico

While the mountain ranges in Sonora, Mexico look rough, they are low in elevation. Most likely you will be glassing from roads down on the flats, or hiking up to vantage points that offer good glassing.

Compared to sheep hunting anywhere else in the world, a Mexico desert bighorn sheep hunt might seem “cushy,” but that doesn’t mean that it’s not going to be strenuous.

You may need to hike up to glass from a knob, or make a stalk. Working out enough that you’re in “sheep shape” prior to your hunt is recommended.
