Desert Bighorn Sheep in Sonora, Mexico
Guaranteed Landowner Tags
For most hunters pursuing the Grand Slam of North American wild sheep, the Desert bighorn is usually the last of the 4 species to take. While there is some very good Desert sheep hunting in the states of Nevada and Arizona, the odds of a non-resident hunter ever drawing a tag are extremely remote, so many devoted sheep hunters opt to finish the final leg of their slam in Mexico, where guaranteed landowner tags are available.
There are two primary regions to hunt: Sonora and Baja, with a few tags also being available in Chihuahua. By far, Sonora consistently offers the best hunting, with excellent trophy quality, high hunter success and terrain that is manageable for most sheep hunters. While Baja may offer lower priced hunts, the rams here are smaller, the success is lower and the terrain can be daunting – even for experienced mountain hunters.

This is where the experience and wisdom of Five Star Expeditions can really pay off, as two members of our staff and many of our best clients have taken slams of sheep. Our staff and our clients have hunted both Sonora and Baja, so we can objectively evaluate the two. We also attend the special sheep conventions and regularly network with other sheep hunters and outfitters. All of this research has led us to one outfitter in Sonora and to say the least, their track record is very impressive!
Here are just some of the statistics for this hunt:
If you need a Desert bighorn to complete your slam, this is the outfit to go with. We’ve hunted with and booked clients for others, but nobody can compete with this outfitter.
