The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish (NMDGF) 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 Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF). Anyone, including previous special permit holders, may submit a bid to obtain the 2019 Rocky Mountain bighorn permit unless their hunting privileges have been revoked.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.
The rule in New Mexico has changed for the 2019-2020 season. As in the past, the auction winner will have the first choice of any open unit (Auction Hunter exclusive unit). The raffle hunter will then declare to hunt in a second open unit (Raffle Hunter exclusive unit). The remaining open units may be hunted by EITHER the Auction Hunter or the Raffle Hunter! Currently there are 6 Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep hunt units open for the 2019 season. The New Mexico Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep herds are in both high and low-elevation habitats. Both the rifle and archery state record rams were harvested in 2017, scoring 197 6/8 and 192 6/8 B&C respectively.
The successful auction bidder must select by June 30, 2019 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. The Raffle winner must select a hunt unit by July 20, 2019. Hunt dates run from August 1 through December 31, 2019 except in Wheeler Peak where the hunt dates are August 1-15 and September 1 through December 31, 2019. The raffle hunter must choose their exclusive unit by July 20, 2019. 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.
