The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish will auction one Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep permit. As authorized by state law, the Bighorn Sheep Enhancement Program will receive 90% of the proceeds for projects to benefit bighorn sheep with 10% of the proceeds retained by the WSF. Anyone, including previous special permit holders, may submit a bid to obtain the 2017 Rocky Mountain bighorn permit unless their hunting privileges have been revoked. The permit may be transferred by the successful bidder to an individual qualified to hunt.
Currently there are 6 Rocky Mountain populations with hunts for the 2017 season. These herds are in both high and low-elevation habitats. 2016 marked the second season in the Rio Grande Gorge, which resulted in all 5 harvested rams green-scoring better than 180 B&C, and included a B&C score of 191 2/8. The alpine herds in the Pecos, Wheeler, and Latir also continue to produce trophy Rocky Mountain bighorn.

The successful bidder must select by June 1, 2017 one hunt from any unit open for Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep hunting in New Mexico, including: Pecos Wilderness (Unit 45), Latir Wilderness (Unit 53 north of NM 38), Wheeler Peak Wilderness (Unit 53 south of NM 38), Rio Grande Gorge (Units 49, 50, 53), San Francisco River/Turkey Creek (Units 16B, 22, 23, 24), or the Culebres Mountains (100% private in Unit 55). Some restrictions apply on the private land hunt in the Culebres Mountains. Hunt dates run from August 1 through December 31, 2017 except in Wheeler Peak where the hunt dates are August 1-10 and September 1 through December 31, 2017. For specifics on these hunts contact NMDGF bighorn sheep biologists Eric Rominger (505) 476-8045 or Caitlin Ruhl (505) 476-8063 or visit them at the NMDGF booth in Reno.
