What To Expect on Your Hunting Trip

Our hunts are tailored to accommodate a range of physical abilities and expectations. Whether seeking accessible adventures with ATVs or the challenge of remote, physically demanding hunts, we match you with the ideal unit. Expect days filled with strategic tracking, glassing from high vantage points, and navigating Utah’s iconic desert and mountain terrains in pursuit of mature rams. Utah’s Desert Bighorn Sheep hunts boast high success rates, with hunters having the opportunity to harvest quality rams. Every unit holds mature sheep and our guides push to harvest old mature rams on every hunt. Genetics in each region can vary, and the quality of sheep varies from unit to unit, with some producing impressive 170-inch rams while others offer some great mature rams that won’t score as high. The average shot distance is around 400 yards, depending on the hunter’s capabilities and comfort level. Hunters may use their preferred weapon.



From the rugged expanses of the Henry Mountains to the scenic landscapes of Kaiparowits, our hunts cover diverse, challenging terrains.



Desert Bighorn Sheep hunts in Utah typically begin in mid-September, when temperatures are still high. As such, motels and vacation rentals (VRBOs) are the preferred lodging options, providing hunters with comfortable accommodations after long days in the field. Days start early with a quick breakfast before sunrise, followed by expeditions in 4×4 vehicles and occasional use of side-by-sides to access hunting units. Most lodging options are conveniently located within the borders of the units, offering easy access to prime hunting grounds.

I have been hunting with Wade Lemon Hunting for 5 seasons. We have harvested some really nice trophies. They have access to great areas and can assist in obtaining special, limited or restricted tags. The team of guides they have are really excellent, they are very knowledgeable and passionate about trophy quality and hunt hard to give you the best hunting experience possible. I have several hunts scheduled with them this season and I’m really looking forward to each one.

I was searching for a high quality mountain lion hunt. Wade Lemon had been recommended to me by a trusted associate in Texas. I researched some other outfitters but ultimately chose Wade. It turned out to be a great decision. Wade’s guides’ busted their backs for me and were top notch in every aspect. By the end of the hunt I was rewarded with a world class trophy. The experience was everything I was hoping for. I’m already working on booking my next hunt with Wade and his team.
