Hunting experience at Alaska Hunting Adventures: The Tok Management Area (TMA) was created in 1974 with the goal of providing Dall sheep hunters the opportunity to harvest large-horned, trophy rams in an uncrowded setting. Tok Management Area rams exhibit the second greatest horn length and the fourth greatest horn mass qualities of rams inhabiting seven mountain ranges in Alaska. Rams harvested in the TMA average 36 to 37.5 inches. Between 3 and 9 rams per year are harvested with horns greater than 40 inches, representing 8-17 percent of the harvest. All of the hunters of Alaska Hunting Adventures in the Tok Management Area hold a 39 inch average. The TMA is a State of Alaska drawing permit hunt. Drawing hunts in Alaska require an application fee and are awarded by lottery. Alaska currently has no point system set up for draw hunts. An application put in has the same odds of drawing as other applicants. Odds of drawing a permit in the TMA are less than 5%. Click here for quick link country guide.
