Score 185 5/8 B&C

Legendary sheep hunter, Floyd Krank of Globe, Arizona, originally formed this outfit in 1979, under the name of Aravaipa Outfitters.

At the end of the 1998 season, after many years of enjoying a very successful career, Floyd and his wife Mary chose to retire from the guiding and outfitting business. So, with the start of the 1999 season and with Floyd's blessings, Tim Mercier took over the ownership of the company after having guided for Floyd for a number of years. In 2007, after many years of guiding for Dry Creek Outfitters, Cliff St.Martin became a full partner of the outfit.

At Dry Creek Outfitters, we still hunt the same way as always, hunting the same mountain ranges and using the same hunting methods that have proven to be so successful for us over the years. Our guides are all professional experienced hunters with many years of combined guiding and outfitting experience. We are very proud of our crew and feel they are some of the best in the business. Please take a look at “Meet Our Crew.”

All our hunts are fair chase hunts conducted on Public Land. We guide sheep hunts in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Utah. We hunt desert sheep as well as rocky mountain bighorn sheep in Arizona and New Mexico. In California and Utah we hunt desert sheep. Sheep hunting permits in all four states are issued through a lottery drawing. The application deadlines for Arizona and California are in early June, New Mexico is in early April and Utah is in February. Please contact us as early as possible for hunt application information. You can also contact California Fish and Game, Arizona Game and Fish, New Mexico Game and Fish, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources for information. All four states have Governor's tags for auction as well. They are generally sold at various fundraiser dinners.

Many times our clients have taken the largest or oldest rams in the state and consistently take the largest rams in their unit. Your success is our success! We pride ourselves in quality, not quantity and we think that our past performance shows that hard work and experience pays off. You can be assured that our entire team of experienced guides will give 100% effort and dedication to finding you the largest ram in the mountain range for which you have been drawn.
