Midnight Sun Outfitting Ltd. is among the few that offer both Dall sheep and Fannin sheep hunts. The Fannin sheep are a sub-species of the Stone sheep and characterized by black hairs in the sheep’s coat, as well as a dark tint to horns. Fannin sheep qualify under the Boone and Crocket Records as a Stone sheep, therefore this area offers two species of sheep–rare and exciting.
