There is something exciting happening in the world of desert bighorn sheep. Long
known for its precious few numbers and for its equally precious hunting
permits; desert bighorn sheep numbers have been slowly increasing and nowhere
is this more true than in Chihuahua, Mexico. This year WSF will offer one tag
for this population that was started with the genetics from Tiburon Island.
Jose Antonio Vallina a businessman, conservationist, and hunter, started Rancho
La Guarida in 1982 where he built a beautiful lodge and started developing
water sources for the native wildlife. In 2000, he was able to bring in the
first desert bighorn sheep and additional sheep were transplanted in 2002 and
2003. Some from Tiburon Island and some from other sources to increase generic
diversity. Originally the sheep were placed in a 10,000-acre ranch that was
partially high fenced. Rancho La Guarida has since added another 10,000 acres
that are completely open creating a 20,000+ acre eco system for desert bighorn
sheep. The lambing success has been exceptional due to the excellent habitat
and genetics there is a herd of +450 sheep, with about half of them being rams
so hunters can expect to harvest rams in the 175 - 190 category. Desert bighorn
sheep taken on Rancho La Guarida qualify for the Boone and Crockett Club Record
Book as well as the B& C and WSF Awards Programs as free range, Fair Chase
wild sheep. The hunt is for November 2023 to March 2024 hunting season. After
the hunter arrives in Chihuahua City, everything will be arranged for them in
the very finest tradition of Mexican hospitality. The hunt is for 10 days and
one companion can join the hunter at the bid price. Additional companions can
be included at an additional charge. There are daily nonstop flights from
Dallas, Houston and Phoenix into Chihuahua City or there is a landing strip on
the property for direct flights into Rancho La Guarida. Experience the finest
desert sheep hunt by purchasing this desert sheep hunt!
