Join a 2-3 hour guided tour to experience the beauty of Dubois and our three mountain ranges. We begin with a walk-through of the exhibits at the National Bighorn Sheep Center, introducing you to the history of the indigenous peoples known as the sheep eaters, current challenges that face wild sheep and management efforts, and the wild sheep ecosystem. Alongside the narrative of the declining population and strife of one of the most iconic animals of the west, we provide knowledgeable guides, binoculars, transportation, and can arrange for bag lunches, if desired.
As we drive towards the Whiskey Basin Wildlife Habitat Management Area, you will enjoy a horizon adorned by no less than three majestic mountain ranges: the Wind River Range, the Absaroka Range towards Yellowstone, and the east-west trending Owl Creek Mountains.
Our tours are designed to educate around local wildlife, their habitat, and biology in the field. One of the first things you’ll notice is the rolling up-and-down landscape with boulders strewn everywhere, thanks to the glaciers that covered this region 10,000-15,000 years ago. Hiking this landscape is available as these tours are completely customized. Although wildlife sightings are not guaranteed, pronghorn antelope and mule deer are frequently seen in this area.
We ask for payment at the time of reservation. Tours are a minimum of $200, with an additional $100/person for more than two guests.
