The town of Dubois is nestled along the upper Wind River, rimmed by the Wind River and Absaroka mountains. Once headquarters for old-time cow outfits, railroad tie hack crews and river tie drives, Dubois is now the social center for upper Wind River livestock and dude ranches. Noted for its hunting and fishing, the area contains some of the best big game hunting in western America.
It is home to large herds of elk, bighorn sheep, grizzly bears, wolves, moose and mule deer. The National Big Horn Sheep Interpretive Center is the main attraction in downtown. Tours are offered to show off the Whiskey Mountain herd of bighorn sheep, the largest wintering herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep in the world. Togwotee Pass, between Dubois and Jackson Hole, is known for its snowmobiling and deep powder.
