Dall's Sheep Hunting in Alaska-Management & Conservation

  • Dall’s sheep are present in seven major mountain ranges in Alaska: Kenai, Chugach, Wrangell, Talkeetna, Alaska, Brooks and the White Mountains /Tanana Hills.
  • Dall’s sheep have poor survival rates – in the neighborhood of 25 percent during their first year of life, but their annual survival rate increases to 85-90 percent once they reach adulthood.
  • Record deep snow in southcentral Alaska during this winter resulted in extremely low pregnancy rates in adult ewes.
  • The long-term effect on future hunting will depend on the next several winters.
