Wyoming Governor Matt Mead, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission & Department, the Wyoming Governor's Big Game License Coalition, and the Wyoming Wild Sheep Foundation are pleased to provide the Wild Sheep Foundation with a 2012 Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep license for auction. The 2012 Wyoming Governor's Bighorn Sheep License is valid in any open hunt area having more than eight licenses issued. The number of licenses issued per hunt area may change from year to year. Seasons and license numbers for fall 2012 will be finalized in April 2012. In 2011, this license was valid in eight hunt areas: #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8/23. These hunt areas account for over 85% of Wyoming's annual Rocky Mountain sheep harvest. For further information, please contact Doug McWhirter at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, (307) 527 7125 or Kevin Hurley, WY Wild Sheep Foundation (307) 578-8613.
Successful purchaser may hunt any open hunt area that qualifies in accordance with the above. The purchaser does not have to pick a specific hunt area and may hunt different hunt areas. The five-year waiting period between bighorn sheep licenses does not affect the ability to purchase a Governor's bighorn sheep license, and purchasing this license is independent of applying for a bighorn sheep license through the draw system. The license fee ($122 for Resident, $2,266 for Non-Resident) is waived. Preference points are not affected by purchase of a WY Governor's Bighorn Sheep License. 90% of the auction proceeds provide funding for Wyoming bighorn sheep projects via the Wyoming Governor's Big Game License Coalition.
