Arizona is the premier state for Mexicana desert sheep and quality rams. Arizona produces an astonishing number of outstanding trophies; come by our booth to view video of rams still on the mountain. On average more than a dozen make the B&C book every year with several scoring better than 180". The 2013 season was another great year for Mexicana sheep hunters in Arizona with 25 rams scoring more than 168", 20 of those greater than 170". Six of these majestic rams scored over 180". Predictions for the 2014 and 2015 seasons are every bit as bright, with rumors of some big old rams still evading hunters. There is no finer opportunity than Arizona for taking an exceptional Mexicana desert sheep. Last year, Chris Dianda, the 2013 Arizona Auction Tag buyer, took a beautiful 9 year old ram in August with an SCI score of 184".
Arizona’s desert sheep country is some of the most picturesque in the West, and an excellent back drop for the desert bighorn sheep hunt of your life. Bighorn sheep are managed very conservatively in Arizona. The winning bidder for this tag will have 365 days to pursue a desert bighorn sheep in Arizona’s best Mexicana sheep units. The units open for this hunt include: 16B, 22 South, 24B, 28 (south of US Hwy 70), 31, 32, 37A, 37B, 39, 40A, 40B, 41, 42, 43A, 43B, 44A, 44B, 45A, 45B, 45C (including the Kofa NWR), 46A, and 46B (including the Cabeza Prieta NWR) as described in Commission Order 29.
Proceeds from the sale of this tag are used to fund on-the-ground bighorn sheep projects like water developments, surveys, habitat enhancements, and highway mitigation research. No administrative expenses incurred by either the Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Society or the Wild Sheep Foundation come from this sale; it all goes on the mountain. To date, nearly $3,800,000 have been raised strictly for bighorn sheep management through this auction tag. Without the continued funding provided by these tag funds, Arizona’s bighorn sheep restoration program would be years behind its current success.
The Arizona Special Big Game License-Tag is valid for any desert bighorn sheep ram as prescribed in rule R12-4-120, for a 365-day season, August 15, 2015–August 14, 2016. Please contact the Arizona Game and Fish Department (azgfd.gov) or the Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Society (adbss.org) for more information.

A 5% buyers premium will be added to the final bid price of each special permit sold, unless prohibited by statute. Proceeds will be dedicated to WSF Conservation Initiatives. If the winner of this item refuses to pay the premiums required, the item shall be offered to the next highest bidder for the price he/she bid.
