This permit is a premier, unique opportunity to hunt your choice of one of four subspecies of wild sheep in British Columbia; Dall’s, Stone’s, California or Rocky Mountain. Within the past decade Dall’s sheep scoring in the 170’s; Stone’s in the 180’s; California Bighorns in the 190’s; and Rocky Mountain Bighorns to almost 200 Boone & Crockett points, have been harvested.

The permit will be valid on any Crown land or private land (with owner’s permission) that has a legal sheep hunting season for 2016. The permit will be valid during the regular hunting season and include an extended opportunity to hunt for California or Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep until December 20, approximately 1 month past the end of the latest hunting season for bighorns. If the species of choice is a Dall or Stone’s thinhorn sheep, the permit will be valid for an additional period of 21 days prior to the opening of the regular hunting season for thinhorns, through to March 31. There will only be one other person licensed to hunt sheep during these extended opportunities.
The permit is valid for any male sheep.

The permit holder is required to purchase a sheep species license in order to hunt under the Special Permit. A sheep harvested under this permit is in addition to any applicable bag limit for sheep, however, the permit holder may only hold one uncancelled sheep species license at one time. If the permit holder wants to hunt under the normal provincial hunting regulation, they may do so in the same region or a different region as the Special Permit hunt.
The permit holder is required to use the services of a licensed guide-outfitter in the area in which they choose to hunt. Representatives of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and the Guide Outfitters Association of British Columbia will be available at the Convention to assist and answer questions regarding this Permit. Guiding fees are negotiated between the permit holder and the guide outfitter and are in addition to the bid price for the Special Permit. The Special Permit is non-transferable. In the event the permit holder does not, or cannot hunt, there is no refund of the bid price.

The permit continues to raise significant funds for sheep management and conservation in B.C. Funds will be deposited in the Special Sheep Account with the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation. Under the direction of a special stakeholder committee, 75% of those funds will be used for sheep related projects in the province, while the remaining 25% can be used for other wildlife enhancement projects.
