Oregon’s Special Bighorn Auction tag offers lots of choices and lots of benefits. The 2023 tag will be valid in three Rocky Mountain bighorn herds and 12 California bighorn herds. Hunters can choose to hunt massive, uplifted rock faces; deep river canyons; high alpine wilderness or high sky-island desert mountain ranges. Access to Oregon’s sheep ranges includes everything from jet boating America’s deepest river gorge, rafting one of America’s last un-dammed rivers, wrangling horses in the back country wilderness, or backpacking.
Oregon has a reputation of high success for bighorn sheep hunters with lots of quality rams. Oregon hunters consistently take Rocky Mountain bighorn rams over 180 inches, have booked over 20 Rocky Mountain bighorn rams greater than 190 inches, and a state record Rocky Mountain bighorn of 203 5/8 Boone & Crocket score. California Bighorn Hunters in Oregon consistently see rams over 170 and have taken 50 over 175, and 8 California bighorn rams have scored over 180. In 2022, one spectacular California bighorn ram green scored over 191 Boone & Crocket.
Any individual interested in hunting bighorn sheep in Oregon can bid on the 2020 Oregon Special Bighorn Auction Tag, even those who have previously held an Oregon bighorn sheep tag. For a minimum bid price of $25,000.00, the successful bidder will have a 4 month season running from August – November. The season for this special auction tag opens prior to all other controlled bighorn hunts in Oregon, giving exclusive early access to the herds. This includes all Rocky Mountain and California bighorn hunts with authorized tags in 2022. An Oregon Hunting License (resident or nonresident) is included if the successful bidder does not already have a license.
All funds generated from the special bighorn auction tag are statutorily dedicated specifically for bighorn sheep management and research in Oregon. Ten percent of the purchase price is donated to WSF. The continued leveraging strength provided by this program has allowed the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife to develop one of the most successful bighorn restoration programs in the country and participate as a leader in research and management programs that ensure wild bighorn sheep will continue to be an integral part of our heritage.
