With five huntable Rocky Mountain bighorn herds and 32 California bighorn herds, the choices facing Oregon bighorn sheep hunters are tough: uplifted rock faces or deep river canyons; high alpine wilderness or high desert mountain ranges; jet boating America’s deepest river gorge, wrangling horses, or backpacking. However, with the perseverance sheep hunters are known for, the benefits can be spectacular. Oregon bighorn sheep hunters have taken 58 Rocky Mountain bighorns scoring over 180 with 13 of those over 190, and two scoring over 200 B&C. Hunters have taken an amazing 124 California bighorn sheep over 170: 34 of those are over 175, and 4 incredible California bighorn from Oregon have scored over 180.
