Taos Pueblo Division of Natural Resources is pleased to demonstrate its commitment to mountain sheep restoration and conservation by partnering with the Wild Sheep Foundation for the auction of two Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep permits. Proceeds from these permits will be used to aid Taos Pueblo in its mission to manage wild sheep populations and to ensure the availability of these resources for future generations. Taos Pueblo is actively involved in the management of two distinct populations of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep in the Wheeler Peak Wilderness and the Rio Grande Gorge. The successful bidder may hunt any bighorn ram on “Tract C” of Taos Pueblo during the 2016 hunting season (excluding October 27th – November 5th). Highest bidder will receive priority on hunt dates. 25 rams have been harvested on Taos Pueblo, resulting in an average Boone & Crockett score of over 184.

During the 2014 season, Steven Whisler and Thad Steele harvested rams scoring 183 and 190 respectively. In the 2015 season, Jim Lines harvested a ram scoring 187.
