A Desert Bighorn Sheep tag is one of the rarest in the world. An honest to goodness once in a lifetime hunt.

The Delta Clearwater river is about an hour and a half southeast of Fairbanks Alaska. The canoe trip consists of: Eight miles of paddling and fishing on the brilliantly clear D.C., then into the massive glacier fed Tanana River for three miles, then a mile and a half up stream paddle through a slough and finally another mile or so across Clearwater Lake to the takeout. The river trip by itself is spectacular but when you add world class fishing for trophy quality Arctic Grayling, you have wilderness perfection.
Moments before I captured this video my wife and I were complaining that with all of our years in Alaska we had never seen a mature bull moose.

In this video I highlight some key areas and techniques that will help you land a few.
