The successful bidder may hunt in any open California bighorn unit which includes 11 hunt units in northern Nevada.  The season dates are August 27 – November 15, 2012.  The majority of the California bighorn herds exist on mountains of rocky slopes and sagebrush grasslands with peaks ranging from 6,000 to 9,000 feet elevation.  Some bighorn herds inhabit steep rugged canyon walls and escarpments that rise to flat-top plateaus and buttes where pronghorn can commonly be observed.  Almost the entire bighorn habitat area is public land, mostly managed by the Bureau of Land Management with some herds found on U.S. Forest Service lands and on the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge.  One third of the hunt units involve a portion or considerable amount of wilderness lands.  Nevada is not known for large B&C rams, but the 2010 hunting season was the best on record with all 52 tag holders being successful, 9 rams scoring 165 or greater B&C (more than any other year), from 6 different units, and the largest ram scoring 175 1/8.
