Any one have any experience with 40-Mile Air?

Great outfit, one of the best in the state. If you can get a spot, I think you’ll be very happy.
I've had good luck with them.
One of these I will land on the list!! Please !!
Fantastic! A buddy of mine was able to get us in for the second week of August! This is one of my bucket list hunts, so excited I’m already having trouble sleeping!
Been out for sheep with them 3 times. Never back on time. That's not a knock on them, just tells you what their area/weather is like.
When they tell you 50#, they mean it. Put everything you can wear on and fill your pockets with the heavy stuff.
Will not put you out somewhere unless they believe it holds game you can hunt.
The bou in their area are among the largest bodied ones in the state. In 2015 we were in the Mt Harper area and could have rifle killed good - excellent bou most days.
Going to be bowhunting with a fellow bowsiter for caribou in that area next August, cant wait
How is the archery hunting in the 40 mile area? The videos I've seen make it seem like very open terrain.

They do a great job. I have found them to do a little extra when they can. Booked another hunt with them for 2020. Good luck and have fun.
Don't know where you will be going but the area varies wildly as to terrain. Many of the bou we saw were above the sheep. One good bull went by my son and I so close that the broadside photo cut the feet and head off the bou. Most were moving a lot and stalking would have been a challenge.
