    Default Heres Proof

    They are here in Alaska, I didn't see any Rams, perhaps these sheep were lost and wandered across the border,I couldn't believe it! I think they were more curious of me...although you CANNOT hunt them they are pretty cool to see...CK

    Looks like a half bred Dall and Stones sheep, who knows? I thought they were mule deer from afar, until I got closer, they did bolt into the woods after I stopped and got out of my truck...I heard of animals just wondering about in Alaska, especially goats, ....CK

    Default What a mount that would make.

    Need to find a full curl and it would make a great mount. I think they should be left alone so that they will mutiply. What unit did you see those in.
    Great pics thanks for sharing.

    Default Fannin Sheep?

    My guess those would be Fannin. Not a separate species but a color phase of Dalls caused by interbreeding with Stone Sheep

    Who knows maybe they are Stone Sheep

    How cool would that be if they increase to a viable native population?

    Definitely send that pic to the bio in Glenallen (our own Politicalbio)

    They look like stone sheep to me, hopefully they will stick around and establish themselves. Wouldn't that be cool to be able to hunt stones in Alaska.

    I'd have to lean towards stone as well. Fannin, from what I've seen/read, are much lighter, pretty much a dall with grey flecks/spots...Then again, I'm far from an expert...

    Default looks like Fannin to me

    this is a link to the Fannin sheep in Canada.
    the pictures look very similar to the picturese posted of the sheep seen here in Alaska.
    the fannin sheep seem to have several color combo's,

    this would be very cool to have these sheep in Alaska.
    I think Canada would just as soon keep the Stone and Fannins on their side of the border, but Sheep don't seem to ever stop at the Border with their passports in hand.

    I don't see any horns, but they do look like what one might expect from a Stone/Dall hybrid.

    What elevation was this? Was it near treeline? Near mountains?

    Could they possibly be a deer?

    All 3 of them have horns,just have to look closely. The front 2 look like Stone Sheep and the last is more white,so possibly a hybrid. Definitely not deer though.

    Dont worry, I had to enlarge the picture myself to take a closer look.The horns mix in well with the tree branches.
